Getting married when you're this young is more than a little rough.
20 October 2012 | by (Brooklyn) – See all my reviews

Sure there are things that could be stronger, and Steve seems a little bit too old and smart to have picked at 17 y.o. high school student of questionable achievement for a wife (although I guess that in itself should give question to his intelligence), but the film does really capture some of the difficulties of new marriage, and there are a couple of decent songs. There are some sensible people in the story, too, especially viewed through a 1950s lens, but I wish there had been more realistic high school girls, both sugary ones and snotty ones, dealing with Judy's changed status. There's also some pretty good tension due to the constant harassment from the skeevy ex-boyfriend Chuck, which was a bit of a surprise. Anyway, while I didn't find it the most entertaining thing in the world, it was an okay piece of film making. It's hard to understand how Chuck's girlfriend puts up with him, though; I would totally dump his trouble-making ass.
