The MPAA Changes The Rating on ‘Bully’

After weeks of protests, petitions and official statements, the dispute over the rating for the documentary Bully is finally over. The MPAA has finally decided to give the movie a PG-13 rating!!

The rating for Bully had been “R” no-one under 17 admitted which sparked a HUGE controversy.

The doc was made to educate our kids on the effects of bullying, but the MPAA gave the pic an “R” rating cause of its adult language.  Eventually producers decided to release the doc as “Unrated” – meaning theater operators could decide who would be allowed to see the movie.

I’m happy to report that now they’ve got their way, all they had to do was remove three naughty words!

Bully’s director, Lee Hirsch, released a statement saying:

“I feel completely vindicated with this resolution. While I retain my belief that PG-13 has always been the appropriate rating for this film, as reinforced by Canada’s rating of a PG, we have today scored a victory from the MPAA.”
