No actual sexual references just innuendos relating to genders:

A man dresses up as a woman to be Mrs. Doubtfire.

A 12-year-old boy catches Mrs. Doubtfire peeing standing up and freaks out. They think she is male built into a female. Then they find out it's their dad dressed up as a woman.

This is nothing sexual or transgender it's just a comedy about a male dressing up as a female.

No actual violence just arguments and a brief scene of bullying.

4/10 Quite a bit of language.

A few uses of bastard

At least 3 uses of asshole.

7 uses of shit.

One hand gesture, Mrs. Doubtfire gives Miranda's boyfriend the finger.

Many uses of hell and damn, some used as goddamn.


Daniel Drinks a lot.

Daniel and his friends drink at a dinner and they start getting close to drunk.

This move is PG-13 because of the language and drinking. It has nothing to do with it being about the man dressing up as a woman. It is not at all transgender. It's meant to be funny and is a family comedy.

Rating should be PG-13 for language throughout, drinking and some rude humor.

Because of the amount of language in this movie younger kids may need to be supervised if they are not mature enough to handle a lot of profanity.

Recommended for 11 and up.
