‘Bully’ rating reversal: The MPAA and Weinstein Co. agree on compromise that nets documentary PG-13 →
The filmmakers behind “Bully” — the lauded documentary about the national bullying epidemic — stood up to the system and won.
The Weinstein Co. said Thursday that after cutting a few F-bombs from the piece, they got its R rating reduced to a PG-13.
The Motion Picture Association of America’s ruling means the flick’s target audience can now get in without dragging mom and dad to it. The original R-rating met anyone under 17 couldn’t get in solo.
The one crucial scene on a bus where a 12-year-old is tormented is left in, F-bombs and all. A few curses in other scenes were cut.
