* SoBadItsGood: With how quickly the plot/conflict escalates, the writing, acting, editing, & music swells being as forced as a Full House episode, & the rising action leading to the funniest scene in the entire movie [[spoiler:where Taylor tries to take the pills, but "can't get the cap off]], it's one of the most unintentionally funniest movies you'll ever see. It'll totally make your night & makes for some great jokes when talking about the movie.

Not to be confused with the 2015 Channel 4 movie starring Creator/MaisieWilliams which, while accusable of a predictable plot and being more than a little heavy-handed in its [[AnAesop aesop]] regarding the damage cyberbullying can do, is generally agreed to be great.

* RecycledPremise: The film shares a few too many similarities to the 2010 film ''Film/EasyA''. Notably it stars a previously-invisible everygirl who becomes well known to her school primarily for being a supposed [[SlutShaming slut]] (who's actually a virgin) based on rumours started by a local AlphaBitch and an old friend, who ends up falling out with her because of this SlutShaming; she has a gay friend who gets similar bullying because of his homosexuality that's been going on far longer than her bullying but she doesn't really sympathise with him until she sees how badly the homophobia hurts him, she's got a crush on an attractive nice guy who doesn't believe the things people say about her and, in the end, stays by her side, but before that she meets a seemingly nice guy who's really two-faced and makes the situation worse (and in Cyberbully's case, isn't really a guy). And, in both films, the protagonist makes a video that the school watches after having an emotional breakdown of sorts. While the details of the tropes and such are different, the film's got more than a fair share of similarities.

* AloneWithThePsycho: Communication comes through a computer, but the menace of this trope is very much in play for most of the film. [[spoiler: Realising that actually this trope is ''not'' in play and the hacker doesn't actually have any power when she stops talking to him breaks his hold over her.]]

** Either Taylor was wasting time [[spoiler: struggling to open a child-proof medicine bottle in order to overdose on it]] or [[TemptingFate waited until her mother and Samantha come along to stop her from killing herself]].
** Despite constantly being bullied on the site, Taylor is too reluctant to delete her Cliquesters account. ''Why?'' Because then, this movie would've been 5 minutes long.
*** Next to each post on the site, there are these little X's which are supposed to mean you can either block the person, or ignore the post. So, for some reason, she [[ForgotAboutHisPowers NEVER notices them]], which is why she asked about blocking people during her counciling.

* PlotInducedStupidity: Apparently, Clicksters doesn't have a feature that allows users to report cyberbullies, nor does it have a policy on bullying. Not even [[spoiler: after Taylor's attempted suicide makes headlines]].
** Either Taylor was wasting time [[spoiler: struggling to open a child-proof medicine bottle in order to overdose on it]] or [[WeWait waited until her mother and Samantha come along to stop her from killing herself]]. Either way, it's all because of the plot.

** Somewhat justified; given the hacker's abilities to take over her computer and watch her through the cam it's implied s/he could have been [[ParanoiaFuel spying on her a long time before selecting her as the next victim]]. Casey also manages to keep her father out of the room at one point by holding the door shut and claiming she's getting changed.
