Content Details

Why Is Safe Haven Rated PG-13?

Safe Haven is rated PG-13 for thematic material involving threatening behavior, and for violence and sexuality.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Safe Haven...

Violence: Brief scenes of serious domestic disputes between a man and a woman include verbal arguments, physical altercations, choking and stabbing (with blood effects). A character pours gasoline on a building that later bursts into flames while a child is inside. A man pushes a woman to the ground and threatens her with a gun, and a character is shot.

Sexual Content: An unmarried man and woman kiss passionately. Sexual activity is depicted with non-explicit images of the couples’ backs and sides.

Language: Three scatological curses are used, along with a few terms of deity.

Drugs/Alcohol: An undeclared alcoholic is frequently seen drinking, including while driving. Intoxication leads a character to commit violent acts.
