My issue with this whole movie is that they have this campaign to get students to go see it with a "permission slip" after being slapped with a PG-13... if they really felt like it was so important that they wanted all kids to see it, then why not release it online for free? South Park talked about this in yesterday's episode... why not just put it out on the internet? Because they're ultimate goal is to make money, not actually address an issue.
I'll counterpoise this with "The Yes Men Save the World"--another documentary that advocates action to be taken against the way things are ("Bully"=bullying in schools; "Yes Men"=neoliberalism). They released it totally free online
I don't normally speak on the site. I was bullied in school on my first :(. I then kicked their ass and there after i wasn't bullied.
Good review, when I saw the trailer I was worried about a couple of points, and you guys basically confirmed them. I remember when I was in school bullying was such a hot button issue, and they always waved signs, hung banners, had public speakers, invested soooo much time and money into it... and there was still bullies, and everything else. Because the bullied and the average kids would agree, and the bullies fake it and agree. I think all those activities were more effective at making parents and teachers feel better and less responsible.
I think one of the biggest problem is we tell kids "this is the best years of your life." I remember when people would endlessly tell me that and I just thought "are you kidding me, I sure hope not." and lo and behold it wasn't. I wasn't bullied, and even then life is x10 better post-high school. I wish we would tell kids that these may not be the best years of your life, and thats ok, because things are often better when you grow up.
From what you guys are saying about this movie, there is one thing I am shocked that they didn't discuss: what if the bullied fought back and beat the living daylights out of the bully. That happened to some I knew in school in Freshmen year. She was nice, black female who was pretty smart. Ridiculed by this big black woman through racial slurs (Same race but same affect) being pulled on her hair and laddy dudie da. One day, on the bus, I don't know how it went down because she was in the back while I was in the front, but I heard this crashing sound on the window and I saw blood coming out of that bully's head and a slightly cracked window. I rushed up and gave that girl a full headlock because she was at a psychological breakdown. Yelling, eyes red with tears and everything in the book, she went crazy and I could easily see why. The bully had some head trauma and was expelled from school while the bullied had to move away from the school, so I never saw her again.
I see bullies as I see rich tycoons who have these get rich quick through manipulating others; they will get their turn and it will be 10X worse than what the pulled on the people they were bullying. It won't be from the teacher but one or a group of people who just couldn't stand it and attacks the bully like wolves chowing down on their pray.That is my two cents on the subject.
did just see Sexman?
Norman Reedus not only do you kill zombies but you stop bulies
there is only 1 way to stop bullying. make the hunger games real except instead of innocent kids put bullies in there.
After seeing last night's South Park I think I'm just gonna skip this. Also growing up in a public school from a different culture where people doing this kind of shit were expelled in a matter of days or you'd have to work your ass off to compensate in grades for next few weeks after a minor incident the concept of bullying or to be more specific "constant bullying" seems foreign to me and it's of no interest.
Good review guys all your points made a lot of sense.
