[Jeremy Doyle] "
Here's my question, will this movie have more effect on actually bullying or on the MPAA rating system?"


I'm not sure I'm 100% up-to-date n the Bully MPAA conflict, but I have read about it somewhat. I know that it ended up having a R-rating (that's what I saw it as), because of some language. But the last thing I read about it was that Harvey Weinstein was planning on releasing a PG-13 version down the road. So, in a way, the MPAA bullied Bully into doing what they ultimately wanted - censoring the movie to their magical authority on morality. Because of that, I assume this will probably have *zero* effect on the way the MPAA runs things. The MPAA won.

All that said, I have no problem with foul language whatsoever, and I thought the R-rated cut of Bully was less damaging to America's youth than, say, the uber violence of the PG-13 rated Hunger Games. (not that I think The Hunger Games was *actually* damaging to America's youth, but you get what I'm saying)
