Meet the Spartans
Rating & Content Info
Why is Meet the Spartans rated PG-13? Meet the Spartans is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual content throughout, language and some comic violence
Scenes of characters discarding unwanted babies on a pile of skulls and pushing unwelcome guests into a well introduce this film’s type of crude humor. Children are also severely beaten, shot at, chased with a chainsaw and exposed to other forms of abuse all in a comedic vein. In war, soldiers are run through with weapons, shot, beheaded, kicked in the groin and repeatedly beaten with a crowbar. Blatant sexual content includes bare buttocks, computer distorted nudity, skimpy clothing, animal copulation and passionate exchanges along with scarcely concealed genitals. Explicit sensual comments, profanities, derogatory statements and sexual-orientation jokes are also frequently used in the script.
