Rating & Content Info
Why is Penelope rated PG? Penelope is rated PG by the MPAA for thematic elements, some innuendo and language.
After her birth, Penelope’s mother becomes obsessive about protecting her daughter from outsiders. In one case, she hits a reporter in the face, causing him to lose an eye. She also fakes the death of her child. When suitors do show up on the scene, they often jump out of a second story window in order to get away from Penelope. One woman commits suicide after being rejected by a lover. Compulsive gambling, frequent alcohol use (sometimes to the point of drunkenness), smoking and lying are all depicted in this script. Some female cleavage, kissing and brief sexual innuendos are included, along with several mild vulgarities and profanities.
