‘Bully’ Wins PG-13 Rating

The Weinstein Co. announced Thursday that it had come out on top after a tussle with the Motion Picture Association of America to have the rating for the documentary Bully lowered to PG-13 from R. The film began appearing in a limited release on March 30 without a rating, and the company had to yield some ground to earn the MPAA’s PG-13 stamp, removing three uses of the F-word from the final cut. The film has already won several positive reviews for its dark portrayal of students who are targeted by their peers.
