Apparently, this movie about schoolyard bullying gets an 'R' and people are pissed about that because it will discourage young people from seeing it.

First I've heard of this movie. Anyone see it, or is it out yet?

Wondering just how graphic they made the damn thing.

It's supposed to be pretty much a documentary which features graphic language and violence.

Latest I heard is it's being released as "unrated"

Any plans to see it? I'm guessing it would be easier for you to find where you are than up here.

No. No plans.
To be honest, it seemed pretty unsettling and I tend to watch movies for escapist entertainment.

Fair enough. I will probably wait until it's on Netflix.

Between evening training and helping the boy with his now middle-school level homework, I don't have much time for watchin' movies. It usually takes me two night to get through a movie.

I can watch something like TUF or Storage Wars while I'm cooking, though.

Storage Wars. Man, that show is a fucking ridiculous premise, but I cannot stop watching the fucking thing!

Brandi has a great rack. Her husband is a tool.

I will bully him out of the picture then discard Brandi when I've had my fill.

Just bid him up on some quads. She'll leave him shortly after that.

Yeah cuz, you know, trying to tell young people not to do something always works...

The whole arguement is specious. All an 'R' rating will do is what it's already done...get people talking about the movie. Any kid with an internet connection that wants to see this movie will find it.

Any parent with young kids who think their kids should watch it, maybe should watch it themselves first. If an R rating makes that happen, not a bad thing.
