I wrote a few weeks ago about an upcoming documentary called Bully. At that time, I wasn't sure that it was going to make a showing in Evansville, even though I felt (and still feel) like this is the ONE movie that everyone should see.

You may remember Bully ran into some trouble with the MPAA assigning an 'R' rating to the movie. Rather than have it rated in a way that the people who need to see it most, our youth, couldn't even get it, the backing company of Bully decided to release it as 'Unrated.' That's all good and fine, except that it still really wasn't a win. A lot of theaters won't screen 'Unrated' films. So again, Bully was going to miss the audience.

Well, it appears that the MPAA has come to their senses. Bully has been reassigned a 'PG-13' rating. This is great news for a couple of reasons. One, it will open it up to the audience that really should be viewing it, and two, it opens it up to be shown in more theaters like our very own Showplace Cinemas here in Evansville.

Bully opens Friday, April 27th. I hope that you will take the time to see this film. It very well could change your life, and the life of your children. Want to know why I feel this way? Read my original story here.

As a side note, I am still trying to work up the courage to talk with you about my own personal battle with bullying.
