When Hope and Maggie are in the car for the first time, eating at a food stand, Hope Says "Always listen to Avril Lavigne..." but the CD shown is incorrect. It is actually Robyn's debut album "Robyn Is Here" which was released in 1997 while Avril Lavigne's debut CD "Let Go" was released in 2002. To further the time line, the songs "My Happy Ending" and "Freak Out" that are played in the movie, are from Avril Lavigne's second album "Under My Skin" which was released in 2004. See more »

This film tells the story of a bronze medalist in gymnastics, whose promising career ends when she sustained an injury during a competition. She becomes a super unpleasant person, until a letter from her late coach pushes her in the right direction.
"The Bronze" portrays Hope as a super rude, inconsiderate, ungrateful and irritable person who just cannot be liked by anyone. If I was her father, I would certainly have ordered her to move out if she told me to get out of her room! Somehow, the offensive protagonist still keeps me interested in the film, partly due to the rather charming and adorable Twitchy, and the innocence of Maggie. The plot is entertaining and fun, even though Hope insults everyone she comes across. The fun scene climaxes in the hotel room, as Hope and Lance incorporates gymnastic moves into their physical activity!
