Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp have joined forces with AMC Entertainment CEO Gerry Lopez to fight against the 'R' rating that was given to the powerful documentary Bully.

Lopez criticized the decision, noting that violence and sex are more subjective, adding:

"To automatically default Bully is a mistake. Automatic default to a rating … is a mistake. The message, the movie and its social relevance defy that kind of formulaic, conventional thinking. AMC will show this movie, and we invite our guests to engage in the dialogue its relevant message will inevitably provoke."

Yes, yes, yes! There needs to be even more support for this movie so there can be a wider audience!!!! Come on, MPAA!!

Emma Watson's Perks Of Being A Wallflower Appeals And Wins — Overturning Their R Rating!!!

Filed under: Film FlickersEmma Watson

emma watson perks of being a wallflower

YaY!!

Now even more teens will get to see this movie WOOHOO!!!

As we previously discussed, Perks of Being a Wallflower initially received an R rating from the MPAA for "teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references."

Like most movie studios do in this situation, Lionsgate appealed the rating. …and they WON!!! Emma Watson's new movie now has that golden PG-13 seal which means more audiences and MORE MONEY!!!

Hmm we wonder what they had to sacrifice to get this rating though…

Either way! Are U gonna see it!?!
