Odd Girl Out

2005 PG-13 1h 29m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
Bullies don't have to be big, tough boys. In fact, often, they're not boys at all. Based on Rachel Simmons's best-selling book examining the culture of female aggression, this Lifetime original movie follows a put-upon middle schooler (Alexa Vega, of Spy Kids) who struggles to dodge blows from her backstabbing peers. The fact that the abuse is emotional and not physical doesn't make it any less painful.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie starts out like a giggly teen romance movie, but it gets serious as the bullying intensifies. There's a scene where a teen takes an overdose of pills and is taken to the hospital. There's some salty language for a middle school movie, and some sexual references.

Sexual Content

Vanessa talks about "1, 2, and 3," which is code for how many bases she went with a guy. Many kids in school call her a "slut" and a "whore."

Violence

Emotional violence and cyberbullying are the weapons used in this movie. Not physically damaging, per se, but characters are scarred by slander. A fistfight between boys is watched by a big group of kids. School officials are slow to intervene on all counts.

Language

For the target age group, there is a good deal of profanity: "bitch," "damn," "whore," "ho," "slut," etc.

Social Behavior

Bullying is the name of the game among the girls in this middle school scenario. In fact, the bullying is so severe that the main character attempts suicide. She survives the attempt and faces the bully, but the damage has already been done.

Consumerism

Clothes shopping at an exclusive store results in a character buying $650 worth of clothes, kissing her credit card, and saying "Thanks, Daddy." Lots of peer pressure to dress nicely. T Mobile Side-Kick is featured, and some items in the bathroom, like Dove and Johnson & Johnson body products, are shown.
