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

18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Its great, it shows what goes on with teenagers at times like that. Paul Dano in this movie better then in The Girl Next Door. There's drama but its good. He showed that you have to be responsible about the stuff you do. I admit i cried a little but i guess thats what they were aiming for but I love it. Its a really great movie. I'd watch it more if it came on. But hes a really good actor and he set the mood in it. It just goes to show you that people can be very responsible about having a baby at a young age. Of course I'm not saying its good for kids the age of 15 to have a baby but if it happens there's really nothing you can do much anyways. But i also wonder if guys watch it, you know kinda guide them along if it ever happens. It sets a great example for guys to handle it.
