Incredibly over-dramatic "message" film about a good girl (Jennifer West) and a good boy (Richard Evans) who fall in love but make the dramatic choice of having sex. Soon the girl ends up pregnant, which makes her feel like a slut and it also puts a strain on the teenager's relationship. This is in the same company as Reefer Madness as far as being overbearing in trying to deliver a message but this film here never quite hits the same level of camp. There are some over the top moments, which make for a few laughs but for the most part this is played straight forward and tries so very hard to be serious. The biggest problem are the two leads who turn in horrible performances and they bring more laughs when the film is going for seriousness. There's one great sequence inside an abortion clinic, which was shot to look like a horror film and actually manages to be just as creepy as the majority of horror films out in this time period. Jack Nicholson has a small role as a hot rod.
