Overrated: Bully’s R Rating Should Mean the End of the MPAA
The new documentary Bully takes on the issue of harassment in American high schools, depicting real scenes of school bus torture, schoolyard violence, administrative indifference, and the tragic fallout in explicit detail. Now, the Motion Picture Association of America has made sure that most American high school students won’t be able to see the film: It’s slapped the doc with an R rating.
Block a film about school bullying from being seen by students…makes perfect sense. *facepalm* MPAA…
it’s hilarious because the r rating is because of things said by the bullies in the film
you’re protecting teenagers from the things their peers say to them in real life while protecting bullies from reexamining their actions
As if we needed proof that the MPAA is a backwards and counterproductive institution. Well, we definitely have it.
