Why is Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World rated PG-13? Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for drug content and brief strong language

An extended scene with comedic use of an unknown drug presents the greatest concern for family viewing. Some audiences may be sensitive to stereotypical portrayals of Pakistanis who smoke drugs, an Iranian who mentions attending explosives school, and various Indian characters. Profanities number under a dozen, and include terms of Deity, mild expletives, and one possible hushed use of a sexual expletive.
