Why is Dance Flick rated PG-13? Dance Flick is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual content throughout, and language.

“Packed with” doesn’t begin to describe the amount of crude humor in this film where dance contestants are urinated on, portrayed with their heads inserted between their buttocks and shown giving birth during a competition. Although played for laughs, dancers also pull guns on one another and rob other participants. Characters are kicked in the face, hit, slapped, body slammed and molested.

Numerous students are the recipients of cruel comments from a teacher. A blind man spills hot coffee on a woman’s lap and then falls down an open manhole.

A mother comments about her baby’s sexual activity. A male teacher kisses a male student and talks about giving up his “manhood”. A female gym teacher makes sexually oriented comments and forces two female students to strip down to their underwear and engage in a lewd fight. Several females are portrayed with exaggerated female sexual organs and body parts. A male student makes repeated comments about female sexual organs. A drunk girl is shown driving with a car full of liquor. A man is hit by lightening. Characters engage in bawdy pole dancing. Characters discuss condoms, tampons, prostitutes, porn stars and drugs for sexually transmitted diseases.
