Can you believe I was forced to watch this in school?
31 August 2001 | by (OHIO) – See all my reviews

I was forced to watch this movie for my LifeStyles Theology class, and if nothing else, it amused me. I'm sure there was a good message behind it all but some parts were so unintentionally funny... There are too many random things happening in this movie. They go to commercial, come back and she has a baby! And then she's pregnant again, with no explanation as to who the father is. After being forced to use a walker after complications during childbirth, she miraculously just throws it down and walks away. Her father makes the comment, "Wow, you did that left handed." They never really explained why she got into so much trouble when she was younger. All that we learn is that she has dyslexia and her family was poor, which apparently led to stealing cars. She and David, her love interest, break up for no apparent reason, and then, what do you know? Next scene, it says "One Year Later", he's at the door and pours rice on her head. They get married. Had they been dating this whole time? Was that a single fight and then they made up? I don't know... Too many unanswered questions. If this was based on a real woman, kudos to her for surviving through the drama that was her life but the movie did her no justice.
