Boring plot, language, but positive messages shine through

Honestly, this is the classic plot where a girl who is considered a “nerd” wound up with the wrong group of people who are all about making themselves popular. She runs into all sorts of trouble and not shockingly gets betrayed by a fake friend. This movie is the classic 2010 film. However, I would say that kids 12 and up could see this because it does have language and drinking, and sex is mentioned a couple times, but not awful.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8):
Kids say (11):

Nesta Cooper shines as Dani, but her charismatic performance can't save this predictable, trite story and an amateurish production that falls short on all counts. Messages are valuable, but they've been delivered before, many times, in a much more compelling fashion. The film lacks pace, energy, cohesiveness, and artistry. One-dimensional characters are the rule. And Dani's downward ethical spiral is ludicrous given the character as she was introduced. Other than Cooper's performance and adorably precocious work from Leah Rose Randall as Dani's little sister (but even that is a worn-out convention), #RealityHigh has little to recommend it.
