Why is A Man Called Peter rated Not Rated? A Man Called Peter is rated Not Rated by the MPAA

This film, based on the biography of Peter Marshall that was written by his wife Catherine Marshall, expounds traditional Christian values throughout and may not appeal to those with strongly different religious views. Some comments from an angry mob, a character who smokes and a misunderstanding about a couple caught necking are the only other content issues.
