Rating & Content Info
Why is W. rated PG-13? W. is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for language including sexual references, some alcohol abuse, smoking and brief disturbing war images.
This film about the life of George W. Bush frequently portrays its central character in states of extreme drunkenness resulting in aggressive behavior and reckless driving. A fraternity initiation ritual is depicted with men forced to sit naked in ice water and have liquor pored down their throats. Domestic disputes are portrayed between a father and son, and other verbal arguments are included. Men discuss an unwed pregnancy and an attempt to prevent it. Secondary characters drink and are seen smoking (especially during scenes set in the 60s and 70s). Frequent scatological profanities are heard, along with two sexual expletives, various milder profanities, and terms of deity. An obscene finger gesture is seen.
