"Cyberbully" also has amateurish cinematography (half of its shots 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 worthy of praise. The portrayal of cyber-bullying is highly unrealistic; 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 sometimes even unintentionally humorous at times; both far overshadow any redeeming qualities you will be able to find.
