Goofs

During the dinner scene with Jess and Alex, Jess takes a sip of her wine and places the glass back on the table, which causes the wine to move in the glass. In the next shot, the wine is completely still like the glass was never moved. And then in the next shot, the wine is slowly moving after being placed down. See more »

Pleasently surprised
25 January 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

When I first saw a perview for this movie on Lifetime, I figured that it would just be another cheesy, fake, annoyingly dull Lifetime original. But because I had seen some rather intresting, and heartwarming originals, I decided to tune in. I remember lieing there in shock at how amazingly real the movie was, and how it really grasped onto some of the hardships of teen life. The lead girl, reminded me of me, Im a lot like her, and it surprised me at how real they made her character. Of course there was some scetchy scenes, like when the mother comes home, and finds her daughter in bed with her crush. It wasnt very realistic, and it seemed to be a very choppy part of the film. Other than that I suggest this movie to any teenagers who want to see a movie about real life, and that deals with issues that we really deal with. And I suggest it to adults who want to know what their kids are really doing. rateing 6 stars
