Storyline

Bullied high school student Tommy (Daniel Flaherty) is suddenly befriended by his chief tormentor, Matt (Kenton Duty), the school's most popular student and star athlete. Tommy is suspicious, but is forced to accept the awkward friendship in order to enter a cooking contest with a big prize. And besides, it's so much easier to impress his crush, Sarah (Katherine McNamara), when he's not getting beat up by Matt and his team. As the cooking contest heats up, Sarah sniffs out a conspiracy, but nobody wants to hear about it. Can Tommy trust his budding friendship with Matt or is it all a huge joke on him?

Loved this movie!
12 January 2014 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Watched this with my kids and we all loved. I appreciated my kids getting the important message, but they kept also commenting on the great music:) One of my kids has experienced bullying first hand, and I think it was very powerful for him to see this story, as he could relate to the experience. Even if your child has not personally experienced bullying, this movie will help them understand the impact it can have, and ways to make a difference if they see it. I would recommend this movie to anyone with kids ages 8-18. The soundtrack was also really great, with some up and coming young artists. We had heard Ian Axle before, and were excited to have some more of his music to listen to. I will definitely be keeping this in our CD library to watch again!
