Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden...

This documentary discusses topics that are most suitable for older teens and adults. While dealing with issues of violence and terrorism, there is little violence shown on screen, although there is one actual killing by soldiers of an unknown man. We don’t see the shooting, but we hear it and moments later see them carrying the body. The opening sequences show the filmmaker learning techniques to avoid being killed or kidnapped while on his expedition. These include a simulated shooting where a pretend victim is seen lying on the ground with a bloody head wound. Occasional ammunition fire is heard. One scene shows the film crew surrounded by people who begin pushing and shouting at them to get them to leave the neighborhood. At least five sexual expletives are included (which is very unusual for a US MPAA PG-13 rated movie). As well, there are other infrequent uses of moderate and mild profanities, plus some sexual innuendo. A few people are seen smoking (one very briefly from a device of some type). Derogatory and negative remarks are voiced toward Osama Bin Laden and Americans (particularly the current US administration). People living in distress and poverty are seen. A childbirth is included with no explicit visual details.
