Trivia

The original title of the movie was supposed to be "Cherry Pink", based on the song of the same name. However, when the producers wanted to buy the right to incorporate the song into the movie, they found that the price was too high. Thus the name and the song were dropped. See more »

Glimpse of preteen reality
15 September 2004 | by (kentucky) – See all my reviews

Though many people will look at this movie and see innocence to the point of stupidity, I think that this movie was an artful insight into the teenage lust for older women. Everyone has felt the desire for someone older and more experienced, and at that age, we all begin to become fascinated with sex. I love a movie that can draw up strong emotion, and this movie did that for me. While it is true that the movie had its cheesy moments, it takes a good movie to really make one realize the emotion of the characters. When you can truly identify with a character, that's when you know the movie is well written.
