Why is Rush Hour 3 rated PG-13? Rush Hour 3 is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of action violence, sexual content, nudity and language.

Like most Jackie Chan movies, the purpose of the story is to showcase this actor’s amazing Martial Arts capabilities. However, along with the obvious violence, this film also provides Chris Tucker with numerous opportunities to spout sexual commentary and derogatory remarks toward women. In one scene, he inspects a line of chorus girls who he has convinced to undress after telling them he’s a new costume designer. He frequently makes remarks to Chan’s character about getting women to have sex with, and at one point he overhears Chan fighting with a woman and misinterprets the reasons for the sounds. Violence focuses on hand-to-hand combat in a marshal arts style, with many fights featuring people of both genders being kicked, hit and thrown. More graphic scenes include two shootings with blood, and a character who is crushed by a machine, which we don’t see but clearly hear. A Frenchman says he desires to be an American so he can kill without reason. A character is seen smoking a cigarette.
