Why is Just Friends rated PG-13? Just Friends is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sexual content and dialogue.

Parents concerned about sexual content will likely want to pass this one by. While no overt nudity is ever seen (other than a poster of a topless girl with whipped cream and cherries on her breasts), sexual subjects permeate the dialogue and two men compete to see who can bed a girl first. Many slang terms for sex are heard—along with other profanities—and people are often seen being physically hurt by other people or objects. Alcohol consumption is regularly depicted and in one scene, a man reports giving a woman some type of drug.
