Why is Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer rated PG? Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is rated PG by the MPAA for sequences of action violence, some mild language and innuendo.

Toned down just enough to fall into a US PG rating category, this second outing for the Fantastic Four features many scenes of stylized violence that includes cities crumbling with associated property damage. Perhaps more bothersome will be scenes of one-on-one conflicts where people are thrown against walls, rocks and other objects. One scene shows a man’s body being partly blown to bits by a force field, and later we see his half-destroyed corpse again. In another, a woman is hit with a spear that we see protruding from her body. Dark scenes show an evil man with a mask, which may be frightening to young viewers. Sexual content consists of some veiled innuendo regarding intimate married relationships and a woman’s clothes are burned off her body, leaving her naked in public—however we only see a small portion of her body and no overt nudity is depicted. At a bachelor party, some women are shown wearing tiny miniskirts while trying to convince a man to dance with them. A small number of mild profanities are heard along with a couple of rude anatomical terms.
