    Unfortunately not a lot of people will ever see this movie. The MPAA gave it an R rating which would have meant that those it was really targeted at (teens) would not be able to see it.

    Weinstein refused the R rating and is considering releasing it unrated, however the theater owners association has said if they do release it unrated they will consider the movie to be NC-17 and no one under the age of 18 will be allowed to see it even with a parent/guardian present.

    It's a sad trailer and definitely is something that all kids need to see.

    Well if you go to movies like I do anyone can see it haha. Nobody checks ID anymore. I saw Rated R movies when I was like 13 with my friends without an adult.

    Apparently it's because they used the F word more than once, which gave it the R rating. Weinstein didn't want to remove the other times it was said by the kids because that's how some of them talk. I think he may still be fighting to get the rating changed.

    I want to go hug that kid. I feel awful for him. I would ride the bus with him and make sure those assholes never touched him.

    A petition has been started on change.org to lower the rating to PG-13. 173,000 signatures so far.

    That term Boys will be Boys is utterly bullshit. Parents have to be observant of what their kids are up to.

    What a heartbreaking story! icon_sad.gif

    I signed the petition, and shared it on Twitter.

    How the hell does this film warrant an "R" rating? What moron determined that???? If anything, it should be required viewing in the schools!!!
