It’s On: The Battle Over The “Bully” Rating Heads To Washington

The public outcry over the harsh R rating for the documentary Bully has hit a new level and headed straight to the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the people who granted that rating, the Motion Picture Association of America. In an attempt to quell criticism over the rating — which prevents the people who need to see this movie from seeing without adult supervision —the MPAA held a screening and panel discussion to try to convince the highly-influential guests who were invited (including Congressional Representatives) why the R rating was sound. The opposite happened, and now the MPAA is under fire on its own turf. Read more…

10 Relationship Dos & Don’ts From “Friends With Kids”

Ever since seeing the trailer for “Friends With Kids” we’ve been excited to see the romantic comedy starring some of our favorite actors and actresses from Bridesmaids: Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Chris O’Dowd. And now the wait’s over, as Friends With Kids hit theaters Friday! The movie’s about two friends (played by Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt) deciding to have a child together without a romantic relationship. And even though it features a hilarious cast, this isn’t your typical lighthearted comedy, thanks in big part to the relationships possibly hitting close to home. Since the couple dynamics and struggles are pretty realistic — showing both the good and the bad sides of marriage, dating, and parenting (writer/directorJennifer Westfeldt explains her inspiration here) — there are many relationship lessons you can glean from the film. So check out 10 relationship dos and don’ts from “Friends With Kids” now. Minor spoilers ahead! Read more…

Look, you could choose to get really upset about the rampant objectification of women and flagrant misogyny in a movie like “Piranha 3DD.” Or, you could realize that this is a film starring David Hasselhoff and Ving Rhames — and that the latter sports a pair of prosthetic gun legs throughout. Do you really want to waste your time being mad at that? Instead, why not put on some 3-D glasses and enjoy the very top-heavy ride? I know I will. [Perez Hilton]

In the scene, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is presenting her bow-and-arrow skills to a group of distracted judges — so she gets their attention in an aggressive and brave way. Check it out above. March 23 cannot get here soon enough. [MTV.com]

We may be a little old to go see Disney movies by ourselves (although not too old to belt out “Part Of Your World” the shower). But we’ll be dragging the nearest seven-year-old to drag to a theater and to see “Brave,” Pixar’s newest computer-animated film with a female protagonist. Lots of Disney flicks star princesses who are sweet, passive, and looking for love; “Brave” stars a spunky gal who is a skilled archer and not content with the life her parents want for her. Princess Merida lives in the Scottish highlands and defies her parents wishes and insists on following her own path in life. Pixar has released a three-minute clip from “Brave” (longer than the teaser trailer they released before) and we have to say we’re digging it! Anyone down for a mass-Frisky reader movie-going trip?
