Storyline

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.

I loved this movie! It is worth seeing...A LOT!
17 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

If you are looking at this comment then I am sure you know what the movie is about. So I won't bore you with a long description of the movie...I will just tell you why I loved it so much. First of all you have Randall Batinkoff starring as Stan...and he is a hottie. Secondly you have a really great love story going on in the middle of what could be a big disaster. This movie will make you laugh and make you cry! I highly recommend you see this movie...You won't be sorry.
