Why is The Ultimate Gift rated PG? The Ultimate Gift is rated PG by the MPAA for thematic elements, some violence and language.

More interested in having a good time than doing something good, Jason enjoys smoking, drinking and partying with friends—illegal drug use is discussed but not shown. When actually given a chance to work, he has to be urged out of bed with the help of an electric cattle prod. Later, gun-toting criminals capture several men and threaten to kill them. Some bloody injuries are seen and the sounds of a man being beaten are heard. Alcohol consumption, sometimes to the point of drunkenness, is depicted at parties, festivals and family dinners. Although only kissing is seen, Jason’s premarital sexual activity is alluded to and one woman confesses to having a baby out of wedlock. Three uses of a moderate profanity are used.
