Maybe a good film for Japan ? However, if only those over 17 can view it, it's not going to be of much use to those "concerned" (school children) in a country where bullying is a rampant everyday "pastime"...

Just dub over the words, and substitute things like, "Shucks Number 2"

Any dubbing over it, or taking out of it makes this film lose it's impact. Who do they think they are protecting, kids go through this sort of treatment with harsh language, and bad behavior -bullying should be rated R. However protecting your kids to the point of hurting them is also stupid. I've gone through bullying an there isn't anything 'PG' about it. This needs to be rated to hit the targeted area that maybe the root of the problem or experiencing the problem can get an outside glance at what is happening. This is one of those rare occasions were I agree with Weinstein. I think parents would be shock to hear how foul and filthy some of their children's mouths are. Then again the apple has a high percentage of not falling to far from the tree.
