TV Movie So Bad, It's Been Remembered For 27 Years!
28 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

Should be destined to join "My Mother the Car" and "The Guy Who Talked to Kids" as the worst programs to ever be aired on television, anywhere, not including German Television Programming. Homely teenage couple has 15 second sexual encounter, she gets knocked up, he feigns guilt, couple marries, baby croaks, marriage unwinds, everybody's happy, teenage couple is still homely. Stunning performance by Tom Bosley as the whining father, a role he later reprised on "Happy

Days" and "Father Dowling Mysteries". Certainly a qualifier for "The Bottom Ten of all Time!"
