Really, cyberbullying is a bunch of made up media bullcrap. If someonesent you a nasty note in the mail it wouldn't be paper bullying wouldit? I can't believe people are dumb enough to think this is an actualthreat to be taken seriously. Bullying is bullying and no matter whatyou do the bullying with it's still the direct fault of the bully, notthe fricken internet. I really hope that things like this just go awaybecause it's really stupid and unnecessary, and it does nothing butgive the internet a bad name. One thing I can say is I'm happy aboutthe hilarious memes this has created. Ur a liar Lindsay and I can't getthe cap off are some seriously funny shizz. Another thing, they madethe protagonist an unlikable little snot which kind of takes away fromtheir message.

This movie is so terrible. This movie takes away all of the credibilityof "cyberbullying" as a real issue. The amount of "emotion" (If you cancall it that)and over-dramatization makes it so hilarious. They took a5th grade look at bullying and completely exaggerated this issue.The only realistic characters were the people the mother talked to.Those characters brought the only reality to the movie. The only reason i suggest people to watch this movie, is to laugh athow damn ridiculous it is. If you feel like watching a hilariouslyterrible movie. PLEASE watch it and enjoy the worst movie of the year.TL;DRHilariously Terrible

I honestly don't think I've ever been so shocked watching a movie as Iwas watching Cyberbully. Seeing that this movie starred Disney starEmily Osment I didn't think it would go this deep or be this raw, butit really was. The messages in this film shocked me were so real andthese were backed up by an amazing performance from Osment. She was sobelievable and at times I actually forgot that the film is acted. Herportrayal of Taylor was flawless, making me bawl my eyes out at times.Aside from an absolutely terrible performance from the likes ofNastassia Markiewicz (Lindsay, a minor character) this movie wasincredible and one that really should be seen by all and deserves muchmore recognition than it has. Osment has certainly proved herself hereto be an incredible actress and has shown that she has what it takes.Cyberbully delves into serious and sensitive issues, in a way thatreally get through to the audience and truly shocks them to their verycore. Cyberbully is truly deserving of recognition and is one of thefew films nowadays with a soul, a message, and a film that people aregoing to come out of with a new perspective.

First off- yes, I was bullied for 8 years as a child and teenager. Iknow what I'm talking about.Anyone who takes the internet as seriously as the characters in thismovie shouldn't be on it in the first place, a lot of people say.This movie isn't about cyberbullying. This is a movie about drama-loving girls who go on the internet. They spread rumors and taunt eachother, and for some reason, the main character takes it to seriously.So seriously that, after watching a video of some other girls dressedup as her, insulting and slandering her, it drives the main characterto attempt suicide.Now, this is not how reality works. You don't kill yourself oversomebody posting videos or rumors on the internet. Sure, it might hurt,but no normal human would try to kill themselves over it.Mind you, this movie tries to make "cyberbullying" look like thebiggest problem since the Cuba crisis. This is not the problem. Theinternet is not to blame- bullying is to blame. However, how to solvethis problem is a different debate.This movie is belittling and offensive to anyone who were bulliedbecause it shows this facet of bullying as the biggest problem of thisgeneration. The movie ends with everyone standing up for the maincharacter. Everyone smiles and walks away. Again, this isn't whatreality is about. First off, if the bullying was remotely serious, themain character would be scarred. But this is not the case. So what wasthe problem in the first place? This is a horrible movie, and I urgeyou not to waste your time on hate on it like I did.

After reading through multiple reviews, I agreed and disagreed with alot that was said. While I will admit the plot did seem a bit overdone,I will not say that cyber-bullying is not to be taken seriously. I'veread that "a pretty blonde like that would not be bullied", and thingslike that. But in all reality, bullying is not judgmental. It will notonly limit itself to those people that are categorized as "ugly" or"weird". Bullying can happen to ANYONE, from any background, and shouldnot be taken lightly no matter what. Words can hurt, regardless of whoyou are.I also saw numerous complaints that there were plot holes, such asthere "never being a reason for the brother to hack his little sister'sprofile", but I felt the reasoning for it was self-explanatory. He wasjealous because his sister was given a laptop and he wanted the freedomto do what he wanted on the internet unsupervised. He probably did itas "revenge", feeling that was his best option to exact his envy. Ofcourse he did not know what would happen from it, but he's her littlebrother. Little brothers are generally annoying and try to, well, annoyyou (not true in all cases, mind you).I also saw people complain there was no reason for Lindsay's hatred forTaylor, but as stated in the beginning of the movie, Taylor made acomment and Lindsay took it as Taylor calling her a "whore". Lindsaywas obviously a popular girl, and probably very feared due to herfather being an attorney, so no one tried to go against her opinions.There were numerous other statements about the Scott ordeal. The reasonSamantha tried to protect her is because she didn't want what happenedto her to happen to Taylor also. There was no clarification on whetherher statements about Scott were true, however.Now that I've gotten those quirks from other reviewers out, I'd like togive a review myself.I was not going to watch this movie, but when I saw Emily Osment castedfor the main character, I decided to give it a try. I personally feelEmily did a great job with conveying emotions in the film, though someof her supporting actors could have been a bit better. Scott, forinstance, I feel was a loose character. Going from big-shot popularJock to liking her, back to "I'm Mr. Too-Good-For-You", was veryconfusing. It was like the writer did not know what type of characterhe wanted Scott to be.The message rang loud and clear in this film, and it's a very goodmessage at that. It did not feel rushed, but it also did not drag out.I usually expect less from ABC Family movies (sorry ABC!), but this didnot let me down. It's definitely worth a watch though if you reallywant to form an opinion of it.

I did not think that this movie was going to be any good when I firstsaw previews, but I was curious. The story was moving and riveting. Itshows the truth to bullying and that people will not stop no matterwhat. This shows how people will make you a victim and they do notrealize what it is doing to people. Suicide hits home for me. My bestfriend has tried many times to kill herself and a kid in my schoolcommitted suicide not even a year ago. This movie gave me a look atwhat they could be going though and what I want to stop people fromgoing though. People are that vicious and this movie did a great job ofcapturing that truth.
kaigara453 30 April 2013
I watch this movie to mock it. It's so stupid in the manner itsledgehammers into the viewer's skull that the government censoring theinternet is the only way to stop bullying, rather than standing up foryourself and taking care of things for yourself. There are policies onwebsites that will shut someone down that is harassing you. There aredelete buttons. There's also blocking you can do. All of this you cando for yourself and you don't need the government to regulate theinternet for you to accomplish it!Oh, and let us not forget the amazingly stupid writing in terms of thecharacters. Let's not forget that little gem. Let's not forget theidiot lead and her traitorous friend and her other friend who is alsoan idiot. Let's not forget that I end up rooting for the brother as thehero of the story because he has more common sense than his wholefamily combined. Let's not forget that the mother only shows commonsense every now and then instead of all the times... and it's usuallynot when she's trying to solve the bullying. Let's not forget thehilarious stunts done against the idiot Lead. That video alone is notworth killing yourself over. No lie, that video of the Obviously EvilGirl wearing the Lead's face as a mask made me laugh. It was so stupidthat the only thing I could do was laugh. That would be happening inreal life. I would laugh. Do you know why? Because I'm not an idiot andI can take care of myself against people who attack me.And then Taylor killing herself. I just... I laughed. I laughed almostas hard as when I saw the video. I was just astounded that the girl wasgoing completely crazy over that video, depressed by it, but justcouldn't stop myself from laughing when the chick goes "I CAN'T GET THECAP OFF" when trying to open a child-proof seal. Really? Really?? Youhave that much trouble with a child-proof cap? And you're in highschool? Really? Do you see what I'm talking about here? This movie is crap. It'spandering crap trying to make you feel bad if you don't like it. Theaudience that thinks its deep are sheep that are pandered to by thiscrap sandwich.

Cyberbully may be a bit corny and over-exaggerating, but gets the pointacross. It is to make us aware that cyberbullying is real and doeshurt. Some of the scenarios of bullying that Taylor (Emily Osment) goesthrough are maybe un-realistic of very likely to not happen. EmilyOsment did an amazing job, and may be one of few good actresses comingfrom Disney Channel. During the scene where she tries to kill herself,I don't think it could have gotten any more perfect, except for the "Ican't open the bottle" part. That was a bad choice of words andactually a bit humorous and ruined the mood a little, but still notenough to make you stop crying. Yes - that scene is a big tear jerker.Emily Osment did really well with the crying (actually I didn't knowshe could cry that good), enough to make your heart hurt. Overall, corny and over exaggerated, but gets the message across andvery good acting from Emily Osment.

Ah, yes. I see ABC Family has taken a point from the Lifetime MovieNetwork's oh-so-delicious- aged-gooey-bleu-cheese morality plays andproduced Cyberbully, the tale of the anarchy that ensues when hormonalteeny-bopper girls play rumor mill amid the seedy beds of online chatrooms. It is a movie whose trailers fit the Lifetime profile to a T,complete with the snooty girl who delights in stirring emotions like ablender, a young girl eaten alive by metaphorical angst demons, and acan-do, will-do single mother that would take on soap scum in theshower with nuclear devices, if that was what it took. I was hooked atfirst commercial. I sat down on my couch in the perfect mood to riff this film to shreds,and boy-howdy, did I. For the first hour, I watched as little Taylorwas thrown into turmoil over insults as weak as "You're a slut" and"You smell like a sewer". I saw the bored children circle in likevultures over paper-thin rumors and giggled at the "subtle"anti-bullying messages peppered into the already cheesy dialog. Thestory went up, down, loop-de-loop, and into hyperspace as everyone wasthrown into nearly operatic tones. I couldn't believe that this wasonly the first half of the movie. Then everything stopped. When thedust had settled around the hour and fifteen minute mark, I realizedthat I had reached the climax of the story, and was staring down thebarrel of an hour-long PSA for Stomp Out Bullying. Every five minutes,I was reminded that saying mean things about my peers was, indeed,immoral, and that trusted adults were my only hope when faced with suchperil. It felt as if the movie was over and I had to endure painfullyboring and relatively obvious commentary and observations. A very bigdisappointment for someone who was expecting a morality tale ofcomparable quality to the morality films of the 1930's. And, as a sidenote, I felt myself thinking that Lindsey, the snooty girl mentionedearlier, was suffering an overdose of bad Botox because she would notstop smiling, even when she wasn't engaging in the psychologicalwarfare that you know she just couldn't live without.

While I would agree with some other people's comments that the girlbeing bullied would likely be popular in real life, the movie as awhole makes a very important point, cyberbullying is a legitimateproblem. Technology has made it easier to bully and no matter how hardwe try to protect our kids there is no escape from it as the moviepoints out. It also makes the strong point that many people don'trealize there is no such thing as absolute free speech (and thereshouldn't be). Words that involve defamation and libel invade one'srights to privacy and this movie points this out effectively. Ifnothing else it challenges parents to do more and realize kids (andeven some adults) are struggling with many emotional issues due to thiscowardly form of bullying. It also though not naming any sites shouldremind us that many kids are attracted to sites like Facebook and thosetypes of sites should do more to stop cyberbullying. It should alsoremind us there are other sites such as Topix that do not absolutelynothing to curb the problem of cyberbullying and that is a realproblem.

Did they consult any experts when making this movie? How do thecharacters go from talking about intercourse and sexual relationshipsopenly, to having the lead break down in tears over being called smellyand a childish insults.The bully's dad is a "lawyer" and it appears the script writers aremocking American's and the 1st Amendment. Not a huge deal, butconsidering this movie was seemingly produced entirely by Canadian'sit's a little telling.Overall the production quality is low, I'm kind of glad I missed thiswhen it was originally aired on ABC Family, this is not a film I wouldbe showing to a teen, it trivializes real cyber-bullying.

WARNING MAY HAVE SPOILERS!To start off, reading some of the reviews it looks like people are notseeing the point to this movie. To have the protagonist a middle classblond girl does not take away from the movie because she is not atypical target, but rather it shows that anyone can be a victim ofcyber bullying or bullying in general. I like how they chose this typeof protagonist not only because it can be anyone, but because it isn'tstereotypical like other movies about bullying that are viewed. Thismovie, with the lead roll given to Emily, has done an amazing jobportraying her character. Not only did she put emotion and depth butshe made the viewers at home feel for her and want to make a change I'msure. Plot: The plot was practically general but then again it wasn't. Youhave a typical teenagers, going through school. While the movie doesleave certain questions unanswered( ex. Why does Lyndsay bully Taylor?Is there some sort of past?) those answers don't take away from themovie. By showing that even your friends can turn on you and bully you,it gives children the protection that they need to chose who theirfriends should be. I would rate this movie a 9 out of 10 because it shows the lengths achild can go to if they are bullied enough. Taylor went so far as tothink suicide was the answer, she was so distraught that she did notknow how to apprehend the situation. And yes some may say the words"nasty" and "ugly" are not good enough words to make people generallythink that way, but you have no idea the mental defense children have.Some have a backbone that no words hurt them and then you have somewhere the smallest words can hurt like a knife. Sticks and stonespeople. I recommend parents showing this to their children, because itgives them values and makes them understand that a bully is no morethan a person and that you can stand up to them. And if you are thebully, it helps you to take a step back and realize that the words andactions that you say or do to a person really can hurt and make anegative influence on that person's life. This movie makes you want tomake a difference, and as a person who has seen bullying, onedefinitely needs to be made.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie if i'm being honest, justthought it was some teen film which would appear totally fake. However,when watching it I began to realise the social issues hidden within thefilm, and the fact that so many teenagers are going through the samething each and every day and so many of us are oblivious to it. EmilyOsment does an outstanding job of playing Taylor, who falls victim tocyber bullying resulting in extreme measures. The movie moved me, anddefinitely made me think about these issues, and it just isn'tsomething to ignore. The fact that the movie is based on real events isdefinitely an eye opener to anyone that should watch it, and indeed,words can hurt.

Great Movie! I think that everyone in this movie had gone above andbeyond and did their job. I think that Emily can work both roles in hercareer. The comic role and the serious role. It would say hats off toall actor's/actress's in this movie! Everyone was AWESOME! I stay homeall week with 2 small children and I am 39 years old. I was so lookingforward to this movie all week just to have 2 hours to myself. Thanksto all the cast for making it a good movie for me, as I don't get muchtime to myself. I think that is a huge issue in schools and everyonehas done a outstanding job trying to get the message across. Hopefully,some of these teens will take all of this inn and try to do the rightthing from now on. I was a kid once and did some mean things and tothis day I am still not happy about it. It is like one of those things,If I could turn back time. I regret those days. I think that KellyRowan did a excellent job as Mom in the movie, I have alway's been afan of her as well. I hope that all of the young one's will go far intheir career, they deserve it. Wendy Lee

Teen girl Taylor Hillridge gets a a laptop for her birthday and signsup on a social networking site. She starts to feel alone as her friendsostracize her and she falls victim to cyberbullying.So, upper-line, I didn't have the highest expectations. This was a filmfor kids, to send the kids a message, and do it efficiently enough sothe adults can get something out of it too. But with the unrealisticscenes to the whiny, teenage-produced power, the film falls short inlots of ways. No one would go to drastic measures, such as suicide,just by being called a slut. The whole scene with the father attorneywas just cringe-worthy. And the antics of the high-schoolers were justdied down just so the film could be viewed by kids. Well kids need toknow the REAL truth, that this stuff happens but in a whole other way.The film tries hard to do this, but never succeeds... Other than thehorrendous attempts at trying to get the message through (whichhonestly never fully gets through) the acting was really great! EmilyOsment was cast well, and if the whole movie wasn't so adult-proof, shecould've gave it her best. Other than her, the rest does good as well,some being cringe-worthy though. For a directing, the filmmakers dogreat at constructing a film, but overall they fail on the wholeMESSAGE and the whole POINT. So the movie was good in it's own way, butbad when it's viewed at another way... So, bottom-line, the movie wasn't too great. There's more films likethis that don't try to die down the material and also show the message,but Cyberbully fails. But in a light note, the acting and directingboth team up with the message to show that this stuff happens... Butmuch worse. I recommend if you know what your in for, but not expectinga break-through. In fact, if your expecting TV-movie quality (which isEXACTLY what it is) go see it, because maybe you'll have differentviews. 6/10.

The people who made this movie totally missed a serious and importantpoint. Nowhere did anyone tell these kids: things that go on in highschool matter very little in real life. (except for pregnancy ormurder) You people tell kids that high school is the be all end all,then you end up with Columbine. Things that seem so important at theage of 16, are seldom even remembered as an adult! A grown up looksback and doesn't remember petty fights, just that you were all friends.Kids should be told that this is not the pinnacle of their life, andthat life get's easier and better as one gets older. Thanks for trying,but next time . . .

It was a lazy Sunday and I was tired of watching the news so I tunedin. A couple of times, I changed the channel because of a commercialbreak, yet changed back in time to pick up after that break. I thoughtthis was just going to be another watered down ABC family movie; notthat there is anything wrong with that. But I was wrong. This movie iswell done and at times very painful yet motivating. When I was in the2nd grade I (with a friend) called a classmate fatty, not evenrealizing what I was doing. I just knew that it was getting meattention and a rise out of the kid. He pushed me and I ended up in thehospital for 2 weeks. I learned early and had a major lesson thatformed my values today. This movie stirred those actions and emotionsand it is worth a serious watch. The acting is good and believable and,hopefully, the message will ring true to others who find it a hobby tobully others. Unfortunately, most bullies will either not bother towatch and take action or simply laugh at it. The seriousness could bedevastating. This movie might be one of many, but it ranks tops. Isuppose I gave it a high rating because I want this movie to benoticed! Give it a try.

I will admit that this movie would not be among my top recommendationsfor people, heck probably not even of 2011. However, the movie did havea purpose and attempted to deliver a positive message about therealities of teen bullying, focusing mainly on the aspect of"cyberbullying" obviously. Sometimes the writing can be a bit sketchyand some of the scenes feel like superfluous melodrama, but underneaththese grating flaws there is still some raw emotion and powerfulmessage. There are also some scenes that are supposed to be serious,butend up being kind of laughable, due to the poor writing. What altershowever this movie from being laughably bad to something of enjoymentare the tidbits throughout that actually WERE supposed to be funny.This is not a great movie, but if you want something a bit uplifting ona rainy night I don't think this is the worst movie to spend your timeon.
ToExist 10 April 2013
while i appreciate the message this film was going forÂ i don't think itportrays bullying accurately at all. how often have you seen people whom look like the lead character getpicked? its usually people who aren't conventionally attractive whomare picked onÂ not pretty blonde's or boyish pretty boys.why does the mainstream entertainment industry always seem to simplyslap reading glasses on a pretty boy or dress a cute girl awkwardly allwhile expecting the audienceÂ particularly bully victims to identifywith the characters that are supposed to represent them. its completelyunrealistic and diminishes the desired message of the film.i just don't think many bully films feel real to me. go to anyschoolÂ check out the people whom are picked on for the most part anddecide if people like them are accurately being portrayed in cinema. ican assure youÂ they're not.while i was never bullied myselfÂ i have defended many a nerd in my timeand they looking nothing like the alleged victims in this film. none of the characters in this film feel real. consequentlyÂ you end upnot liking them much.
