Adam (Kevin Mundy) is a senior at Gatlin High. His girlfriend Amber (Reagan Pasternak) is "saving herself for marriage." In the meantime he gets acquainted with Gynger (Alycia Purrott) and gets her pregnant. The local prosecutor Lydia Stone (Mo Gaffney) is running for mayor and decides to charge Adam with statutory rape to get the "moral majority" vote. Written by
During both of Gynger's hospital scenes, you can hear a "Dr. Moyle" called on the PA. Allan Moyle is the director. See more »

Three versions of the credits exist. The edited MTV version shows a segment about what the film was based on. The first time the movie aired on MTV, the music video for Fenix, TX's "All My Fault" (theme from the movie) was shown on the credits. The DVD omits both those endings and instead shows bloopers and outtakes from the film. See more »
"Jailbait," though full of bad acting and cheap lines, is fresh and funny because it's so full of taboos. First of all, it's obvious most (if not all) of the actors are Canadian due to their accents, but this doesn't really matter (it just takes away realism if the film's set in the US). Secondly, here we have a 15 year old girl who is sexually aggressive and manipulative. She's portrayed as a vixenous, trashy sex object, battling with an unattractive, whiny virgin over a cute but dumb guy. The underage sex, pregnancy-taken-lightly, and manipulation of the legal system are all "iffy" issues, but they also make for great comedy. The best character in "Jailbait" is the attorney Chuck Clopperman, who embodies every cheesy lawyer cliché in the book. The scenes with him are great (for example, when a "Chuck Clopperman Parking" sign falls down to reveal a handicapped parking sign). I definitely recommend seeing "Jailbait" if you didn't catch one of the 3,000 viewings on MTV when it came out.
