Storyline

After her favorite uncle passes away, fifteen year old Nik feels herself trapped in the world of braces, babysitting, crushes, and suburban life until she overhears a conversation between her parents. Now Nik is convinced that her father is having an affair with her widowed aunt and that her parents are going to announce a divorce on her sixteenth birthday. Despite the reassurances from her non-conformist friends, Babyface and Mouse, that divorce is not the end of the world, Nik will try anything to keep her parents together. Written by Max Vaughn

I liked it.. actually
17 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Allison Mack, Karen Allen, Caterina Scorsone

I just wanna say that films like this (films that revolve around younger teens talking about boys and realizing how much life can suck) don't appeal to me. But this one was.. different, somehow. First of all, it's NOT about a loser girl with no friends and is always miserable, and by the end of the film, turns into the prettiest most popular girl who everybody loves; like 'She's all that' sort of. Nik Faulkner (Allison Mack) is a chirpy 15 year old, going on 16. She has to take care of her twin brothers and likes a boy at school but discouraged about having to wear braces.

The characters wasn't all annoying and like alot of teen movies, there wasn't someone that always had to stir things up. Even the boy that Nik liked at school wasn't that bad, he wasn't a booster of his own ego, like they usually are in movies like this. I liked Nik's friends Mouse and Babyface, they were charming and comical. The one thing that would have been better is if they'd have just stayed friends at the end, instead of dating each other. but ah well. And of course it had to have Karen Allen in it, who played Nik's mum, or mom. It's a TV movie. All thats missing is Jane Seymour and a cheesy soundtrack and you've got yourself a pretty half-decent made-for-TV-movie.
