Harvey Weinstein To Battle Doc Bully's R-Rating For the Children

Says storied MPAA-fighter Harvey: "I have been compelled by the filmmakers and the children to fight for an exception so we can change this R rating brought on by some bad language. As a father of four, I worry every day about bullying; it’s a serious and ever-present concern for me and my family. I want every child, parent, and educator in America to see Bully, so it is imperative for us to gain a PG-13 rating. It’s better that children see bad language than bad behavior, so my wish is that the MPAA considers the importance of this matter as we make this appeal.” [Press release via IndieWire]

    Um, does he not see the irony that he is trying to strong-arm the MPAA as he utters this?

    "It’s a serious and ever-present concern for me and my family. I want every child, parent, and educator in America to see "Bully"
    Sounds vital. So offer this deeply important film for free on the Weinstein Co. website. Or, did you mean you want them all to PAY to see this vital film, which would mean this societal hand-wringing is all a marketing ploy?

    So he's gonna bully the MPAA into giving him what he wants?

    Hasn't he heard of a "bleep" effect? It worked to get "Kuffs" a PG-13...
