Why is Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins rated PG-13? Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual content, language and some drug references.

From the get go, this family reunion is filled with coarse sexual innuendo and crude remarks by both men and women who make blatant sexual advances even on their own relatives. Depictions of human intimacy (with obscured nudity), animal sexual activity, concealed condoms and partially exposed busts are a mainstay of the script along with frequent comments about male and female anatomy. Family interactions involve roughhousing and fistfights (involving both genders and resulting in some bloody injuries). A character is burned on a stove and others commit deliberate acts meant to inflict pain. Alcohol use and the insinuation of drug trafficking are also portrayed. The dialogue contains non-stop profanities including a sexual expletive, derogatory and racial comments, religious jokes and stabs at current celebrities.
