Why is Paranoia rated PG-13? Paranoia is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some sexuality, violence and language.

Violence: White-collar crime, insider trading and corporate espionage are all depicted in this film. These seemingly victimless crimes result in murders. Photos of dead and injured victims are seen. A car intentionally runs down a character. Another character is threatened with a gun. Characters chase down a man in an attempt to kill him. Cars drive recklessly through busy streets.

Several morning-after scenes are shown. Brief back and shoulder nudity are shown, sometimes in a non-sexual context.

Language: The script contains one strong sexual expletive, a handful of scatological slang terms and some other profanities, along with brief crude sexual dialogue.

Some cigarette and cigar smoking is portrayed. Characters drink socially and are offered drinks at the office.
