Added DiffLines:

* CluelessAesop: While the film obviously had good intentions, critics from both LGBT and mainstream media have noted that it was too stereotypical. The boys running in particular is ridiculous; no-one runs like that, especially not if they’re running for their lives to avoid a ''hatchet'' falling on them.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Megan didn't break up with her boyfriend neither before the camp, nor meanwhile through phone or a message. She even mentioned having a boyfriend during their group therapy. Was he waiting for her during the camp? Was she practically cheating on him with Graham?

** Historically, these programs were even ''worse'' than what we see here. Methods including aversion therapy, lobotomies, nausea-inducing drugs, chemical castration and flat-out torture were used to "cure" a person of their non-straight tendencies. Nowadays, most conversion programs in the United States stick with therapy, psychoanalysis, and (if the program is religion-oriented) prayer, though on occasion you'll hear reports of a (usually unlicensed) camp reverting to the old methods.

** RealityIsUnrealistic: There have been reports of such camps using very brutal methods to enact their "cures." Up to and including torture. Likely these are the exception rather than the rule - not that that makes it any better.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: The film exaggerates somewhat the tactics used by True Directions, but some viewers may be shocked at how similar they are to actual conversion therapy programs--mostly in the use of aversion therapy (like electroshock) and trying to make LGBT people act in more gender conforming ways

* PomPomGirl: When the film isn't about homosexuality, it's about the joys of cheering people up through chanting and dancing, if the title didn't make that clear.
