Storyline

Businessman Dan Freeman and his wife, teacher Susan, realized their brat daughter Alex (19) wouldn't do well in life, but expect better from model son Matt, an honor student. Yet classmate Francesca Howell, daughter of an MD, seduces him to sex and gets pregnant. Unlike the much richer Howell family, who insists on adoption and financial help, Matt wants to take responsibility and is prepared to any sacrifice. Gradually his parents' protective attitude matures into understanding support, some of which even rubs off on Alex. Written by KGF Vissers

A unique portrayal of teen pregnancy
19 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh no, another made-for-TV movie about teen pregnancy...where's the remote? That's what I said when I first flipped the channel to Lifetime and "Too Young to be a Dad" was on. But since nothing else was on, I decided to watch it. And I'm glad that I did.

This movie was put a great, new twist on teen pregnancy. After Matt, a 15 year old boy, has sex with Francesca (another 15 year old), he learns that she's pregnant. Usually, films focus on the girl, but this movie chose not to. Instead, it focuses on Matt, the boy, for a change. It's a refreshing new movie about a boy who's "Too Young to be a Dad".
