Bully Review - 3 Stars

This important documentary follows several victims of bullying.  It captures clueless school administrators, tone deaf school boards, heart sick parents and includes a suicide.  Much of the publicity leading up to “Bully” centered on the movie’s “R” rating.  A little bleeping has gained “Bully” a PG-13.  The rating isn’t the issue as much as why the increase.  “Bully” doesn’t find that answer but gets the ball rolling on the question.  Does it deliver what it promises?  Hard hitting documentary.  Is it entertaining?  Not one bit—rather it makes you heartsick.  Is it worth the price of admission?  An important documentary.
