Bully gets cut, rated

The Weinstein Company has caved to the MPAA and edited down the documentary Bully in order to get a PG-13 rating. Unrated, uncut versions of the movie will still be shown in some theaters -- a concession from the MPAA. See more about the story here, and here. (Thanks, Xeni!)

    Fuck the MPAA. Bravo to Weinstein for at least trying and finding a way to bring the film to light.

    This is what happens when there are no Jaggons being sucked and no Thrusher being fingered.

    It now has three “fuck”s instead of the unedited version’s six (which is still two more fucks than usual for a PG-13 film).

    That’s good news. Hopefully more kids will get to see it now.

    It should have been unrated from the start. This is not fiction, it is a reality kids are facing everyday.

    Put it online and give the MPAA the middle finger.

    So I assume being PG-13 will make it easier for schools to play in classes as well.

  8. Daemonworks says:

    Why do people let the MPAA have any say over anything?

    Someone should make a documentary about how shitty the MPAA’s jackboot arbitration of Moo-vy Morals is to the detriment of the “art form.”… which thanks to them now needs quotes.
