YMMV: Odd Girl Out
  • Complete Monster: Nikki. While Stacy shows at least some remorse in places, Nikki clearly loves the bullying even when Vanessa attempts suicide.
  • Positive Discrimination: All the bullies, sans for one dark skinned girl, are white while Emily and the principal who end up helping Vanessa are black. Vanessa's mother is also Hispanic.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The film is very Anvilicious but if the cases of Phoebe Prince and other bullied students are anything to go by then something has to be done about bullying. Vanessa was lucky that her suicide attempt didn't work and that she had people that wanted to help her.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Nikki seemingly getting away scott-free with the bullying. The closest thing to comeuppance she gets is the principal threatening her with suspension for her e-mails. But she continues with the bullying anyway. In today's society she could be realistically do jail time for her harassment of Vanessa.
