A great film
11 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this film whilst on holiday in Tenerife last year. I had to stay in and look after my then 18 month old daughter whilst my partner went down the pub with his friend. The film really hit reality for me. I was 17 when i fell pregnant and 18 when i gave birth to my daughter so a little older than Tina Spangler in the film but i could relate to all the emotions, hopes, the gutted feelings, the ups and downs that Kirsten Dunst played so well. When her friends turned against her, it was exactly what happened to me. But i soon found out into motherhood that you grow up quickly, you make new friends and have new prospects but best off all you have somebody to lavish all your love and attention on. I do not regret having my daughter and although i think this film would be fantastic to show to younger people to show them how hard pregnancy and parenthood can be, i don't think it would put teenagers and young mums off becoming a parent full stop. It was good to know that other people can understand and relate to teenage pregnancy and to make a film out of it was perfect.
