Why Is Forrest Gump Rated PG-13?
Forrest Gump is rated PG-13 for drug content, some sensuality and war violence
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Forrest Gump...
Violence: Soldiers are shown in a Vietnam War context, during an intense battle some are killed while others are left badly injured, many are shown with bloody injuries—some explicit, one man loses both legs and is later seen with amputated limbs. A young boy who has a physical impairment is bullied by other boys who throw rocks at him, he begins to run and miraculously escapes from them. A female character is slapped and knocked to the ground. Fisticuffs occur in some scenes with blood effects. Sexual abuse of a child is implied. Newsreel footage shows actual violent events.
Sexual Content: A woman removes her bra while a man watches (we see this from behind), she places his hand on her breast. In another scene a naked woman is seen with explicit nudity obscured by a prop and positioning. Sexual sounds are heard, a couple is shown kissing and sex is later implied. Men are seen without shirts and some rear male nudity is seen from a distance.
Language: A single sexual expletive is heard along with crude and clinical anatomical terms, scatological curses and terms of deity. Derogatory racial comments are included.
Drugs/Alcohol Drug use is depicted along with consumption of alcohol and smoking.
