Honestly - I didn't go into this with very high expectations. I went into Cyberbully thinking to myself "Oh look - an ABC family movie about the internet. No doubt its going to be badly acted, badly written, hilariously misinformed with planned adverts every four or five minutes to hammer home the point of internet security and bullying, and, no doubt, it being an ABC family drama, after all, it will have no relevance to real life, it will shoehorn in seemingly random issues such as sexuality, and, perhaps most importantly for the demographic, it will, at no point, have any black people. At all. Ever." But what I saw truly changed me. I never realised how hard upper-middle-class white girls had it before this movie, and that plight, that emotional typhoon of internet-related insecurities just hit me where it hurts. It also reminded me of the importance of safety caps on pill bottles, because its not just children who are fooled by them - but adults and teenagers too. And it introduced me to what is, perhaps, the greatest televised event ever conceived, although conceived is perhaps the wrong word....realised. The greatest television event ever realised - the Gay Boy Show. Anyway - in conclusion, this movie has got to be one of the most incredibly watchable movies released this year, and it will warm you from your balls to your solar plexus with its message and its subtle delivery of said message. Watch this film.
