R13 is a good rating, its gory and crude but nothing a teen cant handle

17+ is too high! i live in nz where this movie was given the cinema rating R13, which is alao the rating on the nz netflix. i think its just right, the movie does have mature adult themes, but any kid in a piblic school would know worse things. there is graphic violence with blood everytime a zombie is shot(similar to stranger things gore prob less). the most goriest scene is when tallahasse(woody harlseon) steps on a zombies head and it explodes, but 14 year olds can handle that gore . theres barely any sex except for a few refrences to "group sex". a girl smokes weed, but any teen would understand the concept of drugs. swearing is high, but any teen who goes to a public school has heard thesse words,( words like "f--k, hell, s--t, ass, c--ksucking motherf--k and bastard). so there it is.

Funnier, but small sequel has gory violence, strong language

Zombieland: Double Tap is a direct sequel to Zombieland (2009) a dark comedy about the apocalypse. In this sequel, through you can expect heavier violence and language. VIOLENCE: Infrequent, but gory and graphic zombie violence throughout with includes graphic shootings, bludgeoning, a zombie graphically has his head crushed, zombies are cut down with axes, sharp objects, exploded and much more showing a large amount of detail, gore and blood. This appears infrequently, though, when compared to the first film. LANGUAGE: Around 48 uses of “f*ck” including “motherf*ck”, use of “sh*t”, “c*cksucking”, “b*tch” several uses of the middle finger. SEXUAL CONTENT: A sex scene that shows a man and a woman making out in bed, the woman gets on top of him into a position before the camera pans away onto a picture which rumbles, then we hear loud moaning and banging from outside the room. The sex is referenced numerous times afterwards. Mild sexual innuendo throughout. DRUG CONTENT: Weed is shown in pots, being smoked in some scenes. Marijuana leaves are shown numerous times. Some smoking and drinking. OVERALL: 14+
