Why is The House Bunny rated PG-13? The House Bunny is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sex-related humor, partial nudity and brief strong language.

A minimum of material is used to make most of the outfits worn in this movie. Skimpy tops and short shorts are among the clothes donned by the women in this film in order to catch the attention of the male characters. Sexual jokes make up much of the script and center around an unsolicited sexual favor, prostitutes, buttock nudity, the loss of virginity, and awkward advances made by the unpopular college girls. Innuendos include crass references to male and female anatomy, homosexuality, and activities at the Playboy Mansion. The depiction of a pregnant college student, comments about sexual activity and blatant enticements are also played for laughs. Girls punch one another in the chest and a woman aggressively pinches a man’s nipples. One character bites another on the shoulder. Crude slang, vulgarities and profanities (including an extreme sexual expletive) are used. Scenes of drinking at parties and in clubs are also seen. A woman has her legs severely burned by steam.
