Why is Knight and Day rated PG-13? Knight and Day is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of action violence throughout, and brief strong language.

Violence: Frequent confrontations involve fists, guns and other weapons resulting in many implied deaths, injuries and property damage. Sounds of bone crunching, knives protruding from bodies and corpses are portrayed. A man pulls a bloody knife out of a stab wound. A plane crash is depicted. Cars and aircraft explode. Many car chases occur and characters are presumed dead when airborne vehicles fly directly towards them. A man pushes an attacker into an oncoming train. Bulls chase men and vehicles.

Sexual Content: A woman wakes up from a drug induced sleep and discovers she’s in a bikini—the man she’s with admits to having taken her clothes off and dressing her while she was unconscious. A woman in an inebriated state tells a man she wants to have sex.

Language: The script contains a single sexual expletive, infrequent mild and moderate profanities, as well as terms of deity.

Drugs/Alcohol: A variety of mysterious substances are administered to characters. Most of these cause unconsciousness, while a truth serum leaves a character somewhat inebriated, giddy and talkative.
