Speed Racer Dirty Language Raise Eyebrows

Speed Racer was originally stated to be released with a family-friendly "G-rating." That rating has been bumped up a PG and review Lou Harry believes the producers added unnecessary language to the movie.
Now, I’m not a prude when it comes to language. I’ll happily quote along with “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “Raging Bull.” What bugs me is the unnecessary nature of the usage here - and the fact that it is embedded in a PG movie that has no greater ambition than to gosh-wow its audience.

It’s also got three or four uses of the a-word, one s-word and a kid flipping the bird to a bad guy.
