I just got this link in my email this morning. It seems as though The Weinstein Company has put together what looks to be a GREAT film about the problem of bullying. The problem is that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has rated the movie "R", meaning that no one under the age of 17 can watch it without a parent or guardian and it cannot be shown in schools! Ummm, SAY WHAT?!? Please have a look at the trailer for Bully ... and then PLEASE sign the petition!
Apparently the movie received an R rating because of some F-bombs. They think teenagers are too delicate to hear such language? Who are they kidding? Fuck them.
It seems to me that the MPAA is like too much of the rest of American society: trying to live in the 1950s while the world advances into the 21st century.
