MPAA IS RIGHT: PRODUCERS SHOULD BLEEP THE OBSCENITIES OUT OF “BULLY” AND SHUT UP
We are firmly behind the (Motion Picture Association of America) MPAA’s decision to give the documentary “Bully” an “R” rating because of f-words in the dialog. That means children under 17 can’t see the movie without a parent or guardian. Actually we are grateful that the MPAA is doing their job. Sure, it would be nice for teens to see this, but believe it or not, there ARE parents who don’t use profanity at home and hope their children won’t. Hearing it on the street and seeing the words used on TV or in movies are two very different things. Reality shows manage to bleep the crude words out of their soundtracks daily without spoiling the action. Why couldn’t Bully’s high and mighty producers do the same thing? They KNEW the words would earn an R rating and shouldn’t have asked for trouble. All this fuss to DEFEND the use of the f- word? The world would be better off with LESS crudity. Hang in there MPAA – somebody has to maintain decent standards!
