a pretty good movie
21 June 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I just watched this on HBO...and, I gotta say, I like it...its a pretty good movie, and fairly entertaining....although the acting was pretty poor in a lot of parts...but, its a good movie.this a movie that i'm sure you can see on lifetime.

This movie is about a mom, and her daughter....and her daughter runs away from home, and then meets the wrong guy, and gets involved in drugs, and prostitution.

if you do see this movie, you will most likely be able to tell that it was made in 1990, by the music, and hair styles, etc.
