Resurrecting The Champ
Rating & Content Info
Why is Resurrecting The Champ rated PG-13? Resurrecting The Champ is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some violence and brief language.
Violence and language are the two major factors to consider in determining if this film is suitable for your teens and older children. A boxing match is depicted and a man being punched is shown with blood spurting from his mouth. On two other occasions, youth rough up a homeless man because they know him to be a former boxer—once a couple of them hold the man down while another takes punches at him. There are no consequences displayed for their violent actions. Mild and moderate profanities (typically scatological terms) are used frequently throughout the film. A sexual expletive is also heard one time (in a non-sexual context). Alcohol is consumed in many scenes, with a character buying another man booze in return for having him tell him his life story. In one scene, the protagonist drinks heavily to deal with difficulties in his life. Cigarette and cigar smoking is portrayed. A brief shot shows a woman wearing a bikini. A negative remark is made about French Canadians.
