When having a baby is more than a fantasy
18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Unwed Father" stars Brian Austin Green and Nicholle Tom who become unwed parents of a baby boy while still practically babies themselves. Melanie (Tom), the mother, takes off and dumps the baby with Jason (Green), and he finds he has to grow up overnight and take responsibility for another life. And it's not easy. By the time Melanie re-appears, Jason has grown into a devoted father, although he doesn't have a lot of resources.

Green is so appealing in the role, you can't help but root for him, and his affection for the baby is palpable. Though I'm used to loving Nicholle Tom from "The Nanny," I found myself resenting her trying to get into the baby's life after leaving him with his father.

I liked this film because it gave some realism to the fantasy of having a baby that many young girls have - and also showed a father taking responsibility, how difficult it is to raise a child, and the sacrifices that have to be made.

There are wonderful performances from Isabella Hoffmann as Melanie's mother, Ari Meyers as Jason's supportive friend, and Alan Rachins as Jason's dad. A very heartwarming movie that will bring tears to the eyes of the most jaded viewer, and I think it's important for kids to see and realizing that having a baby isn't all Angelina and Brad in an African forest.
