I felt that this movie showed that people do give up a lot when having an unplanned child but that it doesn't mean having to ruin their lives.
12 December 2003 | by (Palatine, IL) – See all my reviews

The movie "Unwed Father" starring Brian Austin Green and Nicholle Tom was a terrific portrayal of what happens when two people have a baby from a one night stand. Melanie, (Tom) showed that it takes great courage to live with your mistakes and make the sacrifice that she made initially when giving up her child to the birth father, Jason (Green). Brian Green did a terrific job playing the role of a father considering at the beginning of the movie he was a college 'kid' who was willing to give up his paternal rights. I was quite upset with both sets of parents at first; understanding that it is a mother's worst nightmare to have her child relive the events from her life. I thought it was unfortunate that Jason's stepmother was so selfish about her marriage and her beauty sleep that she forced him out using the excuse that her marriage (to Jason's dad) was in jeopardy. This movie showed that people do give up a lot when having an unplanned child but that it doesn't mean having to ruin their lives.
