Why is Pride & Prejudice rated PG? Pride & Prejudice is rated PG by the MPAA for mild thematic elements.

There is little in this film to concern parents other than Mrs. Bennet’s tipsy behavior at a party after she has a little too much to drink. During a church service, a nervous preacher misreads his text causing himself and the congregation a moment of discomfort. Finally, viewers see nude mural figures and statues displayed in some of the community’s more affluent homes.
