In 2018, Daniel Franzese revealed that Bijou Phillips had been extremely cruel to him subjected him to a lot of homophobic and fat-shaming bullying while they were on the set, saying that she kept trying to goad him into admitting that he was gay years before he came out as such and that she laughed at his appearance when he removed his shirt at a pool party and had even twisted one of his nipples. He also said that the producers looked the other way and allowed her behavior to continue as she came from a famous family. However Franzese did note that his co-stars Michael Pitt, Brad Renfro and Nick Stahl all repeatedly and vocally stood up for him and called Phillips' out on her behavior, with Stahl trying to convince her to apologize.

Controversial director Larry Clark's based on real-life events "Bully" is sometimes quite hard to watch, but you can't quite stop yourself from watching the misadventures of these messed up children either. This film feels so real, so nitty-gritty, that at times, you may feel like an intruder, watching someone else's life. These children are so far removed from being children, it is hard to think that they actually are just children. After all, the concept of a group of kids killing their so-called friend, well, its hardly child's play now is it? The cast are great. Brad Renfro is top-notch in all his performances, here is no exception. Bijou Phillips is great, Rachel Miner is cunning, Kelli Garner is a lot of fun, Michael Pitt is slightly annoying, but entertaining nonetheless. Nick Stahl is intense, to say the least.
Of course it would be hard to say you condone the actions of these "kids", after all, they murdered. But it makes for gripping drama. The film also reveals the sentencing which the kids received for their parts in the murder, some of which was very surprising. A great film, but you need to be in the mood for a hard-watch.
