Did You Know?

Goofs

The movie is supposed to be set in the United States (NJ or Philly), but at one point in the movie, the character Cami refers to her mother receiving "physio." This is a give-away that the movie was filmed in Canada, as in the States it is called "physical therapy". In Canada, they refer to it as "physiotherapy," or "physio" for short. See more »

Boy She Met Online - The Jon Cor performance is the best thing in this otherwise average flick
5 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Boy She Met Online" is a terrible title for a movie. As for the plot, it is average without many surprises. 17 year old Cami (Tracy Spiridakos) meets cute boy Jake Byers (Jon Cor) online, but the cute boy turns out to be a criminal who is tormented by serious inner demons. Then after she meets Byers, she gets into a lot of trouble with him very quickly. So there is not much special there, aside from the fact that the cute boy is not a fifty year old pedophile hunting down underage girls (which is how I expected this plot to unfold). As for the acting, Tracy Spiridakos' Cami is little more than a one-note performance of a bubbly teenage girl who likes older boys. The best thing in this movie is Jon Cor's performance as Jake Byers. Jon Cor is no where near as good as James Spader in a similar kind of role in "Jack's Back." But Cor is entertaining because his Jack Byers seems real. Essentially Jack Byers wants to be a decent person(as evidenced by his ambition to have a relationship with Cami), but his constant struggles with insecurity, despair and anger and his propensity for violence complicate his efforts to achieve this goal. Yet at the same time, the humanity of Jack Byers' shines through in confused and unexpected ways. The Jack Byers character is much deeper than one would think from a small budget film like this, and I appreciated the movie for this fact.

6.5/10
