Critic Reviews for Standing Up
The generically titled Standing Up registers as a mildly inspiring if familiar tale of adolescents standing up to bullying.
"Standing Up" is mildly entertaining. Basso picks up steam as the movie moves ahead, but for the first third or so she seems to display only whininess.
It's unclear who this blandly titled drama is aimed at--devoid as it is of humor or any real hazard and lacking the provocative undertones of its source material.
Insightful, frank look at how two kids survive bullying.

Standing Up Quotes
|Howie:||Sometimes popular kids can be really cruel. They can bully you into thinking there's nothing special about you.|
|Grace:||I read about this monkey that the Russian government sent to outer space. They figured out that after a few weeks he would die because the heat from the sun would become unbearable. They said his journey would prove to be invaluable to the advancement of the space program. I wondered how they chose that monkey. That specific one. And why, if he was so special, would they put him in a situation where he could die. If that monkey knew what they were choosing him for, would he have behaved differently? Would he cry when he realized what they had done to him?|
