Citing reasons such as: "I like the trailer a lot" and "I watch X-men", this little boy begged his mom to let him see Deadpool.  After finally being awarded an 'R' rating for "strong language and violence throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity", it probably isn't the best movie to take your kids to. 

When his mom brought this up to Grace Randolf of Beyond The Trailer on Youtube, Grace started a petition to get Fox to release the movie simultaneously with a PG-13 rating.  According to Grace, that should be super easy because they've been doing it with the trailers already which is totally the same thing as editing an entire movie and resubmitting it to the MPAA and arranging it's release in less than a month, right? 

The petition now has 2,032 supporters so apparently some people agree with her, do you?

The Weinstein Company has scored a couple of victories in the ratings battle over Bully, striking a deal with AMC Theaters to allow moviegoers under the age of 17 to see the bullying documentary despite Weinstein's decision to release the movie without an MPAA rating.

Unrated movies are typically treated as NC-17 -- no minors allowed, even with parental permission -- by the MPAA and theater owners, but AMC has made an exception for Bully, letting kids 17 or under into the movie with a parent or a signed permission slip.

Meanwhile, independent movie rating group Common Sense Media has issued a "13+" rating for Bully, the same rating it gave The Hunger Games.

The Weinstein Company has decided to use that rating, instead of the MPAA's proposed "R" (for strong language), on Bully's promotional poster, marking the first time a CSM rating has been used by a studio to promote a film.
