For one thing, the Motion Picture Association of America, the organization charged with rating movies, originally slapped BULLY with an &ldquo;R&rdquo; rating. This designation would prevent countless young people who need to be educated about the effects of bullying from seeing this important film. (Happily, the MPAA has indeed changed the film&rsquo;s rating to &ldquo;PG-13.&rdquo;)</p> Mon, 23 Apr 2012 16:16:38 +0000 37390 at http://wamc.org
