Can PG-13 movies say the F-word?

The restrictions set by the Us ratings board mean the F-word can only be used once in a PG-13 movie.

What swear words are allowed in PG-13 movies?

If you’ve ever wondered why action films are edited down to PG-13 for the theater while the R-rated cut that makes it onto home video seems more like the version the director intended, that is the answer. And you can only say “fuck” once in a PG-13 rated film. Say it twice? You’re slapped with an R-rating.

Can you say the F-word in a TV 14 show?

There are several companies or TV stations not subject to the FCC’s rules that have broken the general implied rule that “crude indecent” language (ex. multiple F-bombs) is not allowed at a TV-14 rating.

Can you say the F word in movies?

Yes, the official rule is one, but the MPAA has been known to allow 3-4 as long as they’re used as expletives and not in a sexual context. I always like to note that they’re allowed one f-bomb that is not used to describe intercourse. It’s just such an odd ruling. Words are words.

Are F bombs allowed in PG-13?

From the MPAA rating guidelines, it reads, “”A motion picture’s single use of one of the harsher sexually-derived words, though only as an expletive, initially requires at least a PG-13 rating. More than one such expletive requires an R rating, as must even one of those words used in a sexual context.”

How many F-bombs can you say in a PG-13 movie?

Here’s a thing you might not know about PG-13 movies: the MPAA allows only one F-bomb in the entire film. If you have two vocalized F-bombs, your movie becomes R-rated, which obviously cuts down on your potential audience.
