Harvey Weinstein Threatens To Leave MPAA, Wants Lady Gaga & Michelle Obama To Help Him Get People To See ‘Bully’ | The Playlist
Harveyesque antics aside, the MPAA has long functioned with a sort of arbitrary ethical conviction. At the very least, an explanation should be provided, especially for a film like ‘Bully’, which is about and for a young audience, believed to be in need of some emotional guidance.

Parents: take your kids to see this movie.
Sign permission slips to allow your children to be bussed to screenings with their schools. Talk to other parents and volunteer to chaperone private screenings at your neighborhood theatre. There are ways around this.
