Why is A Good Year rated PG-13? A Good Year is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for language and some sexual content.

This movie’s heart is in the right place as far as recognizing the importance of relationships and honoring a deceased relative’s wishes. Yet, the protagonist’s choice of the highlife in London versus the peaceful bliss of a French chateau is hardly a difficult dilemma. The moral value of the movie is further overshadowed by a number of sexual expletives and crude terms for sex, which is unusually high for this film’s rating category. An unmarried sexual relationship is heavily implied and discussions about sex, along with a few revealing outfits, are included. A casual attitude toward children drinking wine is portrayed and a young boy pretends to smoke a cigar. A man is slightly injured while attempting some household repairs.

Perhaps the most famous story about a person who reforms his character and turns his love of money into a love of mankind is Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. In Disney’s The Kid, a man changes his priorities after getting in touch with his inner child. The movie Groundhog Day follows a self-centered television personality who is granted (or cursed with) repeated opportunities to figure out the best use of his time and life.
