Our review:

Kids say (5):

Clearly this movie has something urgent to say about cyberbullying, social media, and proper parenting; that message isn't clear, but despite its messiness, the movie may still inspire discussion. Artist/actress/fashion designer Tara Subkoff makes her writing and directing debut here, enlisting the aid of other artists to create social media-related animations (many of which include blade-slashing sound effects). It doesn't really achieve outrage; the effect is instead rather numbing.

The scenes inside the house, which is filled with strange artwork and huge windows looking out onto the chilly winter, might have been worth something, but the characters are more stereotypes than humans. Very little attention is paid to time and logic, and lines like "there's nothing to do without our phones" simply fall flat, tumbling out like a blandly true statement. The final half-hour, with slashing and screaming, is very poorly shot, hard to watch, and ridiculous. See Unfriended instead.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
