Why is Uncut Gems rated R? Uncut Gems is rated R by the MPAA for pervasive strong language, violence, some sexual content and brief drug use.
Violence: Several scenes of violence depicting injury, physical assault and/or weapons. Characters are frequently threatened. A man is punched in the throat, then in the nose, and is thrown in a fountain. There is a scene showing a man with a broken leg, and the exposed bone is visible.
