Having gotten a taste of college life, a drastically changed farm girl returns home for Thanksgiving break with her best friend, a flamboyant party animal who is clearly a fish out of water in a small farm town.
Darcy, editor at her high school paper, and her long-term boyfriend Stan are in their last months of school and already have found places in good colleges. Recently they started to sleep with each other and, surprise, surprise, Darcy gets pregnant. Neither Darcy's mother, who was left by her husband and had to bring up Darcy alone, nor Stan's Catholic parents are very supportive and urge them to have an abortion or give up for adoption respectively. However Darcy's and Stan's love is so intense, they could imagine to have a baby, but this would mean to give up their college careers. Written by

Excellent depiction of what a young couple goes through when having a baby.
This movie is an excellent depiction of what a young couple goes through when having a baby. I was surprised at how accurate they were, from the reaction of the parents down to the fighting between the couple. I was also surprised at the realism of how they all came around, both of the couples parents realizing that they wanted to be involved in the child's life, and the couple coming around realizing they were fighting for the wrong reasons. This movie took a page right out of my life. To all the teens who read this review, this is what having a baby is really like. Remember life isn't always as easy as it looks in the movies. I give this movie a 10/10....only because it wont let me rate it any higher...it really deserves a 20/10 because it is so good.
