The Weinstein Company has attempted their final blow to the MPAA for the R-rating the upcoming film Bully received. The MPAA cited language as their reasoning to give Bully an R-rating. There have been petitions and appeals to try and get the film knocked down to PG-13 with no positive result. TWC's response to this mess? They are releasing the movie with an NR status (aka, unrated). Similar to NC-17 this means a lot of theaters won't carry it because there is no structured rating. However, I think that also might change. The buzz and popularity this film is getting before it's even released might persuade a lot of theaters that wouldn't normally carry it to screen it in at least one theater, even if it's only 2-3 screenings a day.
I applaud The Weinstein Company and the film's director, Lee Hirsch, and plan on seeing this movie even if I have to drive a little bit to find a theater carrying it. From what I have seen and heard so far I think it's a must see for adults and children. This company has said through their actions what most people should have said a long time ago... fuck the MPAA.
