Santa Claus - The Movie
Rating & Content Info
Why is Santa Claus - The Movie rated PG? Santa Claus - The Movie is rated PG by the MPAA
Most of the movie’s content issues fall into the latter half—which is set in the modern day. Here a cigar-smoking villain is responsible for making unsafe toys, taking advantage of others, uttering threats and kidnapping a child. A few mild profanities and terms of Deity used as expletives are heard. Sexual content is limited to the costumes of some dancing girls hired to promote a product. Other minor depictions of concern include a man dressed as Santa and collecting money for the poor but instead uses the cash to buy alcohol, a child who is nasty to a cat, and the homeless situation of the character named Joe.
