Why is Keeping Up With the Joneses rated PG-13? Keeping Up With the Joneses is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sexual content, action/violence and brief strong language.

This spy spoof contains frequent, non-graphic violence including weapons use, explosions, vehicle crashes, car chases and brawling. Most of these depictions are intended to be comical. Characters are killed, one is shot in the head (off screen) and another is stabbed in the neck. Discussion of torture occur. Characters jump from heights and crash through glass windows. A snake is decapitated, then chopped, cooked and eaten. A character is bitten by a venomous snake, another is shot with a poisonous dart. Other slapstick antic are portrayed.

Sexual Content:
The script includes frequent sexual banter, along with crude and anatomical terms. Some scantily clad female characters are seen—one is ogled by men and envied by women. Women are seen in lingerie and discuss sexual topics (this prattle is not very detailed). Married couples kiss, embrace and fondle each other through their clothes. Sexual relations are implied and some sounds heard. A few homosexual and gender jokes are used and two women kiss each other.

One sexual expletive is used, along with a smattering of mild profanities, scatological slang and terms of deity. Some potty words are heard. A character makes some racial jokes.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Frequent social drinking is depicted and one character gets drunk. A character makes his own beer. Characters smoke a hookah pipe. A needle is used to administer an antidote when a character is bitten by a venomous snake. A character shot with a poisonous dart loses her inhabitations and begins saying everything on her mind. Some prescription medications are mentioned.
