It was a lazy Sunday and I was tired of watching the news so I tuned in. A couple of times, I changed the channel because of a commercial break, yet changed back in time to pick up after that break. I thought this was just going to be another watered down ABC family movie; not that there is anything wrong with that. But I was wrong. This movie is well done and at times very painful yet motivating. When I was in the 2nd grade I (with a friend) called a classmate fatty, not even realizing what I was doing. I just knew that it was getting me attention and a rise out of the kid. He pushed me and I ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks. I learned early and had a major lesson that formed my values today. This movie stirred those actions and emotions and 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 to bully others. Unfortunately, most bullies will either not bother to watch and take action or simply laugh at it. The seriousness could be devastating. This movie might be one of many, but it ranks tops. I suppose I gave it a high rating because I want this movie to be noticed! Give it a try.
