PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned, some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 13.

This is a rating directing parents to determine if a child under the age of thirteen should watch a movie. See the Related Link below for a full definition provided by the Motion Picture Association of America.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need an adult to watch a PG-13 movie if you're under 13. PG-13 means that parental guidance is suggested for kids under 13. That's, "suggested," not "mandatory."
