Weinstein Bully Movie Receives R Rating

Weinstein Company's Bully Documentary Receives "R" Rating

It all comes down to six lil curse words. One of the biggest issues facing school children today is bullying, with some statistics showing that as many as half of all kids are bullied at one point during their school years. Following the tragic deaths of kids who just couldn't face the torture anymore, movie bigwig Harvey Weinstein is preparing to premiere Bully, a documentary about the consequences of bullying, later this month. The film has already earned accolades at various film festivals and 10-minute long standing ovations at screenings around the country.

So what's wrong? Because the film includes six four-letter words, it has earned an "R" rating from the Motion Picture Association of America — meaning no one under the age of 17 is allowed to see it without adult supervision. That means no screenings at school assemblies and no groups of kids heading to the theater to see it on a Friday night. The onus will be placed on parents to take their kids to see it. The Weinstein Company is appealing the rating and petitions are currently circulating throughout the country.
