PG-13 Movies That Should Have Been Rated R


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Total Recall (2012) Total Recall (2012)

Full frontal nudity...that is all.

22 Poltergeist Poltergeist

I know it's not PG-13, but it still should've gotten an R rating because of the face peeling scene.

If that's a walking doll I would be out thanks a lot

This classic movie is only PG; although, considering the specific scenes within the movie, it would be close to being R-rated.
If not, at least it would be PG-13, based off today's standards.

Hmm...I'd say it should be rated R due to the intensity, the unexpected horror scenes, and possibly the violence.

23 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

The (probable) reasons this movie didn't get an R rating was because, even though it had insanely graphic violence, it was animated, and had minimal sex and swearing.

24 Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Should definitely be R/15 because the sex is VERY strong.

25 The Other Guys The Other Guys

I've seen a million more R movies that I would recommend before this filth.

Why should that be R. If any Adam Sandler movie should be rated R that isn't, it would be You Don't Mess With the Zohan.

31 Joe Dirt Joe Dirt
32 Saving Silverman Saving Silverman
33 Mortal Kombat Mortal Kombat

It would've got the R rating if they actually put blood and gore in it just like the game.

Mortal Kombat is rad:) and people know their own movie-watching limits so I don't know what to say...

36 The Rundown The Rundown

Yes, it was PG-13 and it should be rated R due to the violence and possibly the language.
