Why is Elizabethtown rated PG-13? Elizabethtown is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for language and some sexual references.

The protagonist contemplates suicide and engineers an elaborate method of stabbing himself. Dysfunctional family members and relationships are portrayed, and the script contains sexual comments and humor. While profanities are few, there are three uses of “the” sexual expletive (one heard in music), which is rare for a PG-13 film. A few passionate kisses and plentiful alcohol consumption are also included. However, this film offers a strong message on the life altering effects of extending kindness.
