I think this is great. Hopefully the message will be heard by a larger audience.




The filmmakers behind "Bully" — the lauded documentary about the national bullying epidemic — stood up to the system and won.


You can beat the system.




And after losing an appeal with the film ratings board, the studio stood its ground: releasing the film without a rating when it opened last Friday in New York City and Los Angeles, running the risk that individual theaters wouldn't let kids in at all.


I heard about this move and thought it was pure genius.

The movie's been slightly re-edited, which is okay, I guess. it still contains the f-word two more times than PG-13 movies usually allow. This is good, I'm glad the movie will be easier to access and easier to show in classrooms, but I also wish the Weinsteins had held their ground. Taking a movie with so much buzz outside of the rating system and having theaters still show it (as I'm sure many would) would be a big hit to an incredibly flawed organization.

Maybe movies like this will help spread that message.

Stop being such an argumentative moron.

Only problem putting out a movie like this, is the people who really need to see it won't. A bully or the bullies parents won't watch this or care to.
