Why is Spy rated R? Spy is rated R by the MPAA for language throughout, violence, and some sexual content including brief graphic nudity.

Violence: Pervasive gun use is seen, as well as on-screen killings with blood effects. One character shot in the head at close range. Characters frequently engage in hand-to-hand fighting, accompanied by bone-breaking sound effects. A discussion surrounding terrorists’ use of a nuclear bomb is a frequent element of the plotline. A character is administered a poison hidden in a drink, which results in the man’s neck and face beginning to rot away. Characters are often in peril and held against their will. Vermin of various types are seen in an office.

Sexual Content: Two photographs of male genitals are briefly seen. Frequent sexual discussions are heard with crude anatomical terms. Characters “accidentally” touch other characters’ bodies in sexual places.

Language: Many profanities are heard throughout the film, including over fifty uses of the sexual expletive (which at least twice are used within a sexual context). Plentiful scatological remarks and terms of Christian deity are heard, along with frequent use of anatomical and crude terms for sexual body parts.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Brief depiction of cigarette smoking. Some scenes feature social drinking. A poison is administered in an alcoholic drink in two scenes.
