Rating & Content Info
Why is The Switch rated PG-13? The Switch is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for mature thematic content, sexual material including dialogue, some nudity, drug use and language.
Violence: A child is seen watching a very violent cartoon.
Sexual Content: Frequent discussions about conception and sexual innuendo throughout. A man accidentally dumps a cup of semen, intended to impregnate a woman, down a drain and then decides to replace it with his own—we see the very beginning of this activity. A man in a live performance is seen naked from the rear and, framed in a blurry background shot, from the front.
Language: A few mild profanities are heard, along with frequent terms of deity throughout. A made up word that is a replacement for a sexual expletive is heard repeatedly.
Drugs/Alcohol: Frequent social drinking is portrayed. A man drinks to the point of intoxication in order to suppress his misery. A man, who is said to be a doctor, is briefly seen smoking what looks like marijuana at a party where he is about to perform artificial insemination.
