Quotes

Taylor Hillridge: [Kris has driven Taylor to the hospital wanting her to go the support group for people who've been victims of bullying] I can't believe you're making me do this.
Kris Hillridge: This isn't a punishment, Taylor. It's a support group. A place you can go to talk about what you've been through.
Taylor Hillridge: I don't wanna talk about it.
Kris Hillridge: Then don't talk about it! Just go and listen! We can't pretend this didn't happen, it happened, and you need help! And there is nothing wrong with asking for help!

Production quality very low, not realistic in the slightest.
30 October 2011 | by SteveSee all my reviews

Did they consult any experts when making this movie? How do the characters go from talking about intercourse and sexual relationships openly, to having the lead break down in tears over being called smelly and a childish insults.

The bully's dad is a "lawyer" and it appears the script writers are mocking American's and the 1st Amendment. Not a huge deal, but considering this movie was seemingly produced entirely by Canadian's it's a little telling.

Overall the production quality is low, I'm kind of glad I missed this when it was originally aired on ABC Family, this is not a film I would be showing to a teen, it trivializes real cyber-bullying.
