Storyline

It's 1963. Poor little rich girl Lydia and her 14-year-old love-child Sam are banished from North Carolina while her powerful father runs for governor. They end up in Wyoming where she parties and Sam finds he's one of only two Grosvant High School students who read. Maurey is the other, a pre-pubescent girl wanting to discover what sex is about. She and Sam set out to learn with help from Lydia, who tells them it stops when Maurey has her first period. Trouble is, pregnancy comes first. In this small town, what can Maurey do, and will Sam have any say? Meantime, Hank Elkrunner, a Blackfoot, falls for the feckless Lydia, while her dictatorial dad keeps tabs on them all from afar.

Maury says that if Sam has to go to military school, in 4 years he will be 18 and can do whatever he wants. But the age of legal majority was 21 in 1963, and wasn't lowered to 18 until 1971. See more »

Quotes

Chuckette Morris: [joining Sam at lunch, all smiles] I like a boy who goes through the line with me and carries my tray. It's all right this time, but your manners will have to improve since we're going steady.
Sam Callahan: Who said we're going steady?
Chuckette Morris: Everyone. They know what you did to me at the picture show.
Sam Callahan: Well, there's more to a commitment than biting someone's tongue.
Chuckette Morris: Well, that behavior may pass back east, but here in Wyoming we're moral. That reminds me, you have to give me your jacket.
Sam Callahan: What?
Chuckette Morris: Well, it'll be a letter ...

Provocative, but credible
31 August 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

After seeing Skipped Parts, and reading all the user reviews, I see why so many are repelled by the movie, but I'm one of the ones fascinated by it. In order to care about a movie, I have to care about at least one character, and in this movie, it definitely was the case, with the Sam Callahan young male part. Although it's true that hardly anyone went through what Sam and his young girlfriend went through, it was captivating to me to see Sam want, so much, to be a real boyfriend to his rather matter-of-fact fellow sexual experimenter. I identified his caring for, and attraction to, girls, with my own young life. As for his mom's character: yes, she was waaayy out there, but I have known women like that, so they *do* exist. I think that, overall, Skipped Parts is one of those movies where you have to give in to the situation a little, and go with it. IF (and this is critical) you have been through at least some of the feelings, if not actual situations, these characters experience, I think you'll agree that the 93 minutes, or so, spent in their world is not wasted time (although I think one time was enough for me...too many other great movies out there to see!).
