This ‘R’ stood for ridiculous

March 28, 2012

We're glad to see the Motion Picture Association of America dropping the "R" rating on the award-winning documentary "Bully," that will open in theaters Friday. About 500,000 people signed an online petition spearheaded by a high school student from Michigan who was a victim of bullying. The documentary originally had an "R" rating because of a pinch of bad language, but let's be honest here, kids today have heard it all before - maybe even worse than what the documentary offers up. To slap an "R" rating on "Bully" because of the "F" word is ridiculous, especially considering a move like "Hunger Games" - a popular flick about kids fighting each other to the death - gets a PG13 designation.
