Why is Leatherheads rated PG-13? Leatherheads is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for brief strong language.

Set in the 1920s, this story has frequent depictions of cigarette, cigar and chewing tobacco use, as well as a child smoking. Liquor is the liquid of choice and numerous figures (including the three main characters) all drink until drunk. One character has his clothes catch fire while under the influence of alcohol. Several people imbibe on the job. Before a raid on an illegal watering hole, a child is shown in a bar with a beer in hand. During drunken brawls, men are hit, bit, and smashed over the head with bottles. Fistfights and rough football play take place outside of the bar. A single gunshot is fired during a police raid. The script also contains terms of Deity, vulgarities, sexual innuendo and some crass comments.

The early days of sport are often a far cry from what we see today. As WWI rages in Europe, a small town schoolteacher introduces the newly invented game of basketball as one way to unite his students and bring an end to the recess brawls in The Basket. In the 1960s, collegiate basketball is rattled when a Texas university coach puts an all-Black first-string squad on the hardwood in Glory Road.
