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

With cast and crew set, production on the film was set for early April 1987. The spring date ruled out the possibility of shooting on location in Wisconsin, since the script called for wintry scenes. Production Designer William J. Cassidy was forced to scout cities further to the north, looking for a town with the best likelihood of snow that could double for small-town Wisconsin. The decision was made to film in Winnipeg in Canada. See more »
After Darcy's mother visits her in the hospital, Darcy is seen laying on the bed when her mother leaves. The next scene shows a printout of the hospital bill. On the left corner, it shows Darcy's name and date of birth, which is 1/1/70. In the same line or to the right, you will see Thea's birthdate, which looks to be 5/17/87, and the day they were released from the hospital, which is 5/20/87. The film is supposed to follow Darcy and Stan's senior year in high school, which means that Thea's birth year is actually 1988, as they would've been juniors and not eligible for college in the fall.

When I sat down to watch this movie, I expected a version of "She's having a baby" But, instead the film started off like a typical "parents-just-don't-understand" flick. Darcy and Stan are madly in love, she gets pregnant, parents tell her to get abortion, Darcy and Stan run off and elope. It was so wonderful watching them deal with the responsibility of marriage and children. FILM 2: After the baby is born, Darcy encounters severe post pardum depression and Stan falls madly in love. The families turn sweat. Even here, the film excels on teenage pregnancy. FILM 3: they are dead broke and can't afford anything causing a teenage "About last night.." They fight, they breakup, they fight, etc. in a cycle. I recommend this if you have time to kill.
