    Harvey Weinstein film Bully given PG-13 rating - 6 April 2012
    "Bully became the subject of a row between the Motion Picture Association of America and studio The Weinstein Company after it received an R rating...
    An R rating means children under the age of 17 are not able to watch the film, about bullying in US schools, without a parent present...
    An R rating also meant the film would not have been allowed to be shown in schools...
    Their decision was based on the use of a certain curse word that is used six times in the movie...
    The film will now be released across the US on 13 April with a PG-13 rating - which warns parents that some material may be unsuitable for children under the age of 13. "
