Inaccurate portrayal of cyber-bullying is entertaining but unrealistic
4 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

It seems that ABC Family has debuted a new film about cyberbullying in social networks. Unfortunately, though, it seems as if was made by someone who knows absolutely nothing about cyberbullying in social networks. Even though some valuable points are made, "Cyberbully" is strictly for entertainment. The movie might actually be brilliant as a black comedy, as Taylor Hillridge tells her best friend that she "can't get the cap off," which is almost undoubtedly bound to be remembered as a staple in television comedy. In fact, at points, the film is so ridiculous that it nearly seemed to have been made as a black comedy. "Cyberbully" also has amateurish cinematography (half of them appearing to have been taken from some serialized drama) and a plain script with wooden dialogue, even though the acting performance of Emily Osment is definitely worthy of praise. The portrayal of cyber- bullying is completely unrealistic, where the main character signs up for a website that apparently doesn't allow you to even delete posted comments. When she should just delete her account, "it's too late" is used as an excuse. When she should just block the profile of anybody she doesn't like, the website seems not to have a blocking option. This is completely inaccurate, as most social networking websites will let you delete comments, block profiles of people, and report spam comments. "Cyberbully" has convincing acting and entertainment, as well as good messages, but is unrealistic and unintentionally humorous at times, which overshadows the redeeming qualities.
