Ending of movie ruined the whole movie
30 January 2012 | by (Vancouver, WA) – See all my reviews

The movie kept my interest and had it not been for the last 5 minutes, I'd have rated it above a five.

When a movie deals with a "realistic" topic it should try with its best effort to portray what most likely would have happened in the real world.

A girl sends her boyfriend a nude photo which ends up going viral. Girl is kicked off her sports team and to her life has no meaning. This is very much like what it feels like in high school when something goes awfully wrong.

Girl kills herself and mom is determined to find out why. The movie did a good job following her investigation and the culprit did take me by surprise. The movie should have ended with the hospital scene.

What the movie did next was incredibly silly. The school suddenly rallies behind dead girl and students, on the lead of dead girl's ex-boyfriend and good friend, turn their cell phones in for the rest of the school year.

Are you kidding me? What teenager would really do this? I couldn't believe that the makers of this movie decided to go with this ending. Poor judgement in my mind and it made me rank this under a five.
