Great Idea for a Story, but Disappointingly Horrible Movie
Verified purchase
This could have been a great movie. Cyber bullying can be scary, especially when a person does not know who the bully(ies) are. I didn't make it past the first minute of this movie and was bored already. Figuring it just had a slow start and would get better I watched for 15 more minutes and felt like I was in la la land. It didn't seem real. The characters were quite childish for high schoolers. The nature of the cyber bullying was nothing more than the 'junior high school' face-to-face bullying, that was around long before computers and social networks... not really what I expected at all. It was very slow moving and the acting wasn't all that good... then again neither was the writing the actors were trying to bring to life as some of them were great results in better productions. I had to stop watching out of sheer boredom. I was disappointed in how dumbed down this movie was as the topic has great potential to be something not only entertaining, but educational and deeply involved. I felt more like I was watching a movie written and directed by middle schoolers.

WE'RE TALKING ABCFAM HERE, PEOPLE
Verified purchase
The content of the movie was excellent. The ending was happy. It is ABCFam home to happy endings, so I knew it would turn out okay.

Here's the thing, on the CW, things would not have turned out okay. They would have taken this movie and put a real ending on it.

Well-acted and many points made about cyberbullying. It is like iBullying for Dummies for parents. They need to watch it. At 17, kids are allowed to make most of their own choices, esp going online. Parents can block certain content, but this girl had been held back too long. She should have been online when she started high school. Now she is a junior, sliding into adulthood, and she has the fairytale world of naivety to what is going on outside of 'silly' rumors in school. She, of course, jumps in head first and nearly loses it. It takes only two days! The other kids would have caught on right away at the age of 17.

When I went to actual high school (9-12), I was bullied. It still affects me at 75. I still remember the hurtful words and mean pranks. Now multiply this by a million and you have 2021! There were times I wanted/prayed to die. Today, they do. Don't focus on the pretty faces and perfect body images, focus on the words and stories spread on the screen like lightening. Movies like this matter.

And for the people who bad-mouthed it, I can tell by the way you did it, you are bullies too. No, you don't want people to watch this.

Impactful, important,thought provoking.
Verified purchase
These kids were 17/18 so they are still developing their higher order thinking and empathy. Kids are very cruel, it is true, but just like the afterschool specials of my teenage years, these movies help put things into perspective and can spark important conversations. I was horribly bullied in middle school less in high school but that was before Facebook or MySpace. Standing up to someone who has wronged you is an important step that not eveyrone can take. But this movies showed that it's worth trying and it also had an important underlying message of how it is ok and important to ask for help, keep reaching out and, if you see someone who is crumbling, be brave and stand up for them, with them and next to them.

The Importance of Standing Up
Verified purchase
What was interesting about this movie is how many of the young people knew all along that trashing this girl online was wrong...but these young people did not stand up for her. After her suicide attempt, a few students came forward. Parents need to be aware of the online activity their teens engage in. If there is continuous bullying, the parents should step in immediately. The problem in the U.S. is that we tend to view children as innocent cherubs, when they can be just as vicious as adults. And the targets of these child bullies (their child peers) are not equipped to deal with the mass-hate that gets delivered to them. I can't imagine a child being able to deal with massive hate and rejection from all of their peers online.

It is REAL cheesy or not
Verified purchase
I read a few reviews, and some say it is cheesy and unrealistic. The point is that is a topic that is REALLY happening, and continues to happen, sadly. Sometimes when cyberbullying happens, there are good endings, and there are bad endings, again sadly. This is a good ending, some may not think it to be realistic. But you have to have hope that there are good endings, and the bully learns their lesson before it gets out of control. My prayers are with all those that have gone through it, are going through it, and may have to go through it.

Should Be Worldwide Not State or Minors Only
Verified purchase
Cyber Bullying should be illegal period as it affects all ages not just kids & it should be world wide not just state to state or per country. Its a good movie with a good message though.

Holy toledo, this movie basically tries to intergrate the kitchen sink of issues a teenager can possibly be dealing with in High School.

Great intentions, just really wobbly execution.
