Isn’t It Romantic | 2019 | PG-13 | – 3.3.6

content-ratingsWhy is “Isn’t It Romantic” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “language, some sexual material, and a brief drug reference.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a few kissing scenes, many references to sex and attractiveness and being worthy of love, a few shirtless men and women wearing cleavage revealing outfits, a fight and a car accident that leave a woman unconscious and a woman struck by a limousine and a food cart, competitive work environments, conversations about being invisible and inconsequential, references to using and selling marijuana, and 1 F-word with nearly 10 bleeped but mouthed F-words. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


Fantasy about a young woman (Rebel Wilson) who does not feel attractive and is generally disenchanted with love, until she finds herself transported right into a romantic comedy. Suddenly, in this reality she has all the shoes she likes, can eat all the ice cream she wants and attracts the handsomest fellows, all amidst fresh flowers and pinkish hues. Also with Liam Hemsworth, Adam Devine, Priyanka Chopra, Betty Gilpin, Brandon Scott Jones, Jennifer Saunders and Alex Kis. Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson. [Running Time: 1:28]

Isn’t It Romantic SEX/NUDITY 3

 – A man and a woman kiss in a hallway and the woman pushes the man against the wall, pulls his shirt open to reveal his bare chest and abdomen and the scene cuts to the morning where she lies in bed and the man comes out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist (we see his bare chest, abdomen and lower legs).
 A scene repeats several times and it is suggested that a woman in bed wants to have sex with a man standing in the doorway with a towel wrapped around his waist; she invites him to bed and he drops his towel as he leaves the frame and the scene cuts back to the morning with the woman asleep (reminiscent of a sequence in a romantic comedy with a specific rating). Two men kiss. A woman gets out of bed and jumps on a man as he stands in the doorway with a towel wrapped around his waist.
 A woman trips, a man catches her in a dip position and they kiss. A man and a woman kiss. A woman touches a man’s clothed chest and asks if he’s been working out.

A man touches a woman’s hand and they look at each other. People in a bar dance during a musical number with hip thrusting and gyration; one woman wraps her leg around a man’s waist.

We see a few scenes from “Pretty Woman” and one shows a woman in a bathtub covered with bubbles (we see her bare shoulders and cleavage) as a man sits outside the tub and asks her to go away with him.

A woman steps out of a limousine wearing a low-cut evening gown that reveals cleavage and bare shoulders and a man says, “Wow.” A woman pulls off her dress to reveal another dress underneath (we see cleavage and bare legs to the thighs) and she dances with men and women on a street with gyrating and hip thrusting.
 A woman trips and when a man catches her, he calls her “adorable.” A man makes orgasmic sounds. A woman hands a man several notes that were accidentally pinned to her door and calls them “love notes.” There are several references to both men and women being “hot.” Two women stare at a man as he enters an office and call him “hot.” A woman talks about clichés of romantic comedies including no diversity, the gay best friend, etc. A woman makes a joke about trampolining nude in public. A character says, “I’m so sexy.” A woman accuses a man of faking being gay. A woman makes a comment about the size of a man’s genitals and then tries to compare it to something for context. A woman tells another woman, “I missed you an unhealthy amount.”

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
