Why is The Intern rated PG-13? The Intern is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some suggestive content and brief strong language.

Men break into a house, with harmless intent, and set off an alarm—they attempt to flee the premises before the police arrive. A woman without a driver’s license takes the wheel from another woman who is driving recklessly.

Sexual Content:
A woman tries to set up a date with a disinterested man and kisses him against his will. Sexual relations between married and unmarried couples (including adultery) are discussed and implied. A man becomes sexually aroused when he is given a back massage. Later he moans while receiving a foot massage, and the interaction between him and the masseuse is misconstrued. A married woman appears to be fondling her husband in bed – they also kiss. A man is uncomfortable when a married woman invites him into her hotel room. A woman is seen in a bathtub (no nudity shown).

The script includes the use and partial use of a sexual expletive (in non-sexual contexts), one sexual finger gesture, some mild and moderate profanities, and frequent use of terms of deity as expletives.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Drinking is shown throughout the movie, in social settings and at home. Characters drink in a bar, and one gets drunk (and later vomits). A man drinks on the job.
