Not that great...
8 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was very disappointing, It's called Chrissa Stands Strong but she hardly does any of that. Most of the movie is about a girl named Tara who bullies another girl (Chrissa) and she never stands up for herself or the other girls who get bullied. It also seems like the school is not very helpful at stopping bullying either as some of the bullying takes place near teachers. This movie seemed like a tutorial on how to bully someone, honestly they should have focused more on Chrissa standing up to herself and putting an end to the bullying. Having a girl run around and insult people for an hour and a half is not a good plot for a movie that's supposed to prevent bullying. Don't make the mistake I made, don't waste your time with this movie. It's not worth it.
