Bullying is an ongoing issue that has been occurring generation after generation. Now with new modes of technology, it seems as though bullying has become easier and “cyber-bullying” has been created. However, new technology has some good purposes to it as well; to spread awareness and put an end to bullying. Many different ways to seek an end to bullying has been formed- one of them being the anti-bullying movie, “Contest”.
“Contest” focuses in on a high school student named Tommy Dolen (played by actor Danny Flaherty), who gets bullied on a regular basis at school. When Tommy’s grandmother- ”Gran” joins Tommy in a televised teen cooking contest, Tommy immediately refuses to do so. However after hearing a conversation from the landlord in regards to Gran’s pizzeria, Tommy takes it upon himself to enter in the cooking contest to help save his grandma’s restaurant. Eventually, a friendship… or shall I say- a fake friendship develops between Tommy and Matt Prylek (played by Kenton Duty)- Tommy’s number one bully. Matt’s brother- Kyle advises Matt to form a friendship with Tommy so he can take over the property which happens to be where Gran’s restaurant is located. Matt, following his brother’s orders does everything to mess up Tommy’s chances of winning the “Contest” and even pretends to help Tommy have a chance with his crush, Sarah O’Malley (played by Kat McNamara). Throughout all of this, tensions rise and characters like Tommy and Matt find out who their real friends are.
