Storyline

The platonic friendship between two high school youths is explored through the attempts to get the girl an abortion. Her young male friend offers his support and tries to find her a doctor. She is grateful, but has trouble in expressing her thanks. At times funny, at other times touching, this is a refreshing, uncommon look at teenage friendship. Written by Anonymous

Poignant Coming-of-Age Comedy-Drama
24 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

The two teens, Pamela Sue Martin and Darren O'Conner, are the stars, and they give as realistic a portrayal of two teenagers in a dilemma that many have had to face countless times before them, but they don't know that. Ms. Martin is perfect as the teenage girl who despite her intelligence, never thinks before she acts in matters of love.

As for matters of honor, she knows she using O'Conner because he has a pubescent crush on her, and she's neither milking it for all its worth nor shying away from accepting his misguided but genuine kindness. For O'Conner's part, he really knows Martin's not going to stick with him after he helps her solve his problem, but the dignity with which he handles the entire situation is nothing short of masterful in his own perfectly awkward way. Lloyd Bridges and Phyllis Newman are marvelous as the clueless parents and Tom Ewell is surprisingly effective in a non-humorous role. This one is well worth seeing.
