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

Working with the baby actors who played Stan and Darcy's daughter, Thea, posed numerous challenges for the production. Different children were needed to represent different stages in Thea's development, from newborn to infant to several months old. Each, accompanied by its entourage of mother, nurse, and welfare worker, could be brought to a location for a period of only two hours, during which time the baby could work for a total of no more than twenty minutes. Unlike the other professionals in the cast, the thespian tykes often proved unwilling to emote on cue. Director John G. Avildsen said: "Babies take direction very badly. They also exhibited a tendency to grow out of their roles. You could see subtle changes in them from week to week but we were lucky that we had some cute ones and their mothers were very patient".

I was expecting an 80s-type young couple comedy. Boy was I wrong. This is some serious stuff, like what happens after you get married to someone you think you're in love with. You don't really know what love is if you haven't known pain.
Ringwald gives a great performance, especially as she's going through post-partum depression. I didn't particularly like the camera work or the laconic script, but I did appreciate the work that went into the direction and the production. I thought the pacing was fantastic - it's not what you would expect and I was pleasantly surprised.
