It looks interesting. I’d definitely get it on dvd from the library. Hopefully it doesn’t bring back memories from high school.

I don’t really have any desire to see it.  I know all too well what bullying can lead to (my brother and I were both bullied and he battled years of severe depression from it, including a hospitalization).  I don’t need a movie for that.

Probably not.  I’ll watch it when it comes on HBO.

ETA: I was bullied most of my life.  I had a rough time dealing with that and a lot of other things going on.

I definitely will. Bullying is currently a major issue (well…it always has been, it’s just now getting taken seriously) and I’d like to see how it’s being dealt with. Plus I really like documentaries.

i would like to see it… hoping they’ll play it on TV sometime. I was happy to hear they took away that R rating they gave it! Def seems like a movie that kids need to see.

I was bullied all through elementary school and i’ve been shy and self consious most of my life because of it. Still recovering from it.  My childhood is not a time I like to remember.

It is in limited release in my area.  I live 5 minutes from a huge movie theatre and its not playing there- I wish it was!

I watched the South Park episode this week and they made fun of the video. I had never heard of it until watching South Park, but I am not a documentary person. Just thought I’d throw it out there that SP did an episode on it! If anyone is interested haha

@Pinkmoon:  Saw this. They kind of made a good point about it. How Weinstein was making such a fuss about every kid having access to it but it having an R rating kind of hindering that goal. Why not just have it available for free if you find it so important?

In the end, it was a double edged sword for him to be so impassioned about it getting the lower rating for such and such a reason, when it was really about money.

Also, can we talk about how going to the movies costs $11 dollars a ticket? Talk about bullying.
