JUSTIN BIEBER'S BELIEVE is a documentary that follows singer Justin Bieber on tour. It is rated PG for mild bad language.
There is infrequent mild bad language, including a use of 'shit', and a use of 'bitches' as a woman raps during a song. The use of 'bitches' is not aggressive or directed at anyone. There is also a segment in which Bieber is shown being hounded by the press. This includes some expressions that have been completely bleeped out, but where we assume bad language is being used. In the original version of the film, it was still possible to make out the nature of the language being used in a couple of cases, either because the bleeping was insufficient or because expressions could be lip read. The relevant moments have been further obscured by the company, by means of additional bleeping and blurring of lip movements, in order to obtain a PG rating. The film also contains some very mild bad language, in the form of the expression "Oh my God!".
There are a couple of scenes of emotional distress, when Bieber learns of the death of a young fan with whom he'd formed a bond. There are also some very mild sex references and a jokey reference to not urinating in a swimming pool.
PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
Company chose to completely obscure two uses of strong language to achieve a PG classification. Cuts made in line with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 12A was available.
