Why is Mad Money rated PG-13? Mad Money is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sexual material and language, and brief drug references

Three women working at a Federal Reserve Bank decide to pad their incomes with some worn out cash that is destined for the paper shredder. With the goal of convincing each other (and the audience) that taking money about to be thrown away isn’t really stealing, there are obvious ethical concerns in the script. As well, parents will find sexual innuendo with discussions about how frequently people have sex and two people convincing a woman to begin a sexual relationship with a man who could benefit their plan. A man in a position of authority sexually harasses female co-workers. Visual sexual content includes a scene where women stuff money in their underwear and a close-up of a hand putting a bill in a string bikini bottom. A male bares his buttocks in a mooning stint. A couple is seen passionately embracing and kissing. Language includes a moderate number of mild profanities, terms of deity and a few scatological expletives. Violence is limited to an explosion (no one is injured) and arrests by police officers with guns. Frequent social drinking is portrayed.
