Man of the Year
Rating & Content Info
Why is Man of the Year rated PG-13? Man of the Year is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for language including some crude sexual references, drug related material, and brief violence
It takes a celebrity to set the political system straight—or at least that’s the Hollywood point of view in this film about a comedian who decides to run for the White House… and wins. This satirical movie’s script uses many sexual and religious (mainly Jewish and Catholic) jokes to make light of serious topics. It also delves into a more serious subplot about a woman attacked in her home and injected with a mix of potent drugs. Later, she is stalked by men wanting to keep her quiet. Some mild and moderate profanities are included along with one use of a sexual expletive. A main character frequently smokes and says he has done so since he was seven, however his health suffers because of this habit. Social drinking is depicted.
