I'd only argue that Elijah Wood's character is made to feel/look insane by The Faculty towards his parents but that's kind of a stretch

No, but there is excessive bullying of a male character, who is belittled (by both boys and girls), mocked by the coach, and physically abused. I'd love to see bullying as a category here, as I find it to be very upsetting.
