Why is Roll Bounce rated PG-13? Roll Bounce is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for language and some crude humor.

These teen characters use some mild profanities, and one offers “the finger” in a moment of anger. However, such incidents are few and the young characters are usually considerate, even though they frequently tease each other. In a fit of rage, Xavier begins smashing his father’s already broken-down car, yet this scene offers a great moment of consolation between them. More content extends from adult characters, including women who dress provocatively and characters that remark about male and female anatomy. On a positive note, Curtis is committed to not drinking alcohol, and shows great compassion, patience, and physical restraint with his son.
