Good PG-13 movies have really changed throughout the ages because of how increasingly relaxed film standards have become. PG-13 used to include nudity and at this point it's really just a bunch of funny PG-13 movies or horror movies that were looking to get a more marketable rating. So what goes into a good PG-13 comedy? Well you're pretty much just looking at whether or not it's funny first, of course, then factoring in that it's not really a good movie to watch with family, but something with a little bit of edge. The funniest PG-13 movies ride the R-rating line very carefully while still just being good PG-13 movies at all.
