Rating & Content Info
Why is Fred Claus rated PG? Fred Claus is rated PG by the MPAA for mild language and some rude humor.
Hurt by the comparisons to his younger brother, Fred becomes a mean-spirited man who has a difficult time carrying through on his promises. His desire to open a gambling joint leads him to steal money and publicly comes to blows with Santa stand-ins. He also causes chaos in the toy factory, fights with some elves and starts a scrap during a family dinner. Later he and his brother have an all out brawl. Other sibling arguments are also shown. Infrequent profanities, some brief sexual humor and a low-cut dress are included in the film along with brief scenes in a urinal and drunken elves outside a tavern.
