Weinstein Co. to release 'Bully' without rating
Weinstein Co. drops R rating, plans to release teen-bullying doc 'Bully' unrated on March 30
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' The Weinstein Co. is moving past the R rating earned by its documentary "Bully" and plans to release the film unrated.

The company announced Monday that "Bully" will hit theaters March 30 without a rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. That means some theaters may choose not to show it.

The MPAA gave the film an R rating for language and declined to change it when the Weinstein Co. appealed. Teen activist Katy Butler started an online petition seeking a lower rating, and more than 475,000 people have signed it.



MPAA officials met with Butler earlier this month but did not change the film's rating.

Filmmaker Lee Hirsch says he declined to edit the documentary's offensive language because "it's what the children who are victims of bullying face on most days."
