The Bully Project Only as PG-13 Version on DVD/BD

After All the Screaming it is Released Censored

We had five news about The Bully Project already. The documentary was distributed by the Weinstein Company and deals with mobbing in US schools. The problem was that some F-words earned it an "R" rating and Harvey Weinstein started a media campaign against the MPAA because of that decision. He wanted it to be uncensored and rated PG-13 in cinemas. However, he didn't succeed and released it "unrated" defiantly. A short time after that, they also released it in a version where three F-words were muted and which got a PG-13 in the end. More than 3.5 million Dollars at the American box office were the result and the majority of that was made with the PG-13 rated version. The media war surrounding the rating surely had influence on the decent success.

On February 12th, 2013, the film gets its release on Blu-ray and DVD. Suddenly, there's no word about the R-rated/Unrated version of the movie since all that TWC is releasing is the PG-13 cut. That is remarkable considering the previous outcry and since the rating doesn't play that big of a role on home video releases (many labels release more versions of a movie, as frequent readers of our website know). The marketing campaign is over and which version earns the money now, isn't relevant, it seems.

At leat there's a hint on the cover that only the PG-13 version is on board.
