Good until last 15 minutes
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Nicole Voss (Ari Meyers) is the head cheerleader, and Greg Dunleavy (Mark Kassen) is the captain of the football team. Together they form a perfect couple except he cheats on her with Emily DeCapprio (Soleil Moon Frye). She gets pregnant and makes demands on Greg. Greg turns and kills her. Meanwhile Nicole befriends missing Emily's mother Tina (Tess Harper) without knowing their other connection.

This would make a fairly good after school special or Lifetime movie. It has good elements in this. The young couple are nice white bread teenagers. Punky Brewster doesn't have that much screen time. Tess Harper is absolutely solid as the grieving mother.

There are problems with the last 15 minutes. The cop was too dismissive, and how hard is it for her to yell out that she found the button? Instead she steals a file from the cops. It would have been better if Greg just go nuts after the party. The final ending is just a big letdown.
