Storyline

An innocent teenage prank plunges three high school girls into a world of chaos after the target of their torment turns up dead, and the police seek the evidence needed to charge them with murder. Bianca is furious. Her boyfriend has been going out with Dory behind her back, and now it's time to make the other girl pay. With the help of her best friends Fallyn and Sarah, Bianca lures Dory far from home, and abandons her in the middle of nowhere. Soon thereafter, the local police discover Dory's body on the outskirts of town, and race to catch her killer. When the time comes for someone to take the fall, growing tensions between the three girls lead to a cover-up that quickly turns deadly. Written by Anonymous

When Dory is in the back of Sarah's car on the way to the "frat party" you see her remove her hair barrette from the right side of her hair and place it on the back seat. Then when they reach their destination she is again wearing the barrette in her hair. Later, Sarah approaches Fallyn at school with the same barrette wrapped in a tissue and tells her that she found it in the back of her car. See more »

It could have been worse...
21 March 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Well, I will start right off with admitting that I had initially expected this to be much worse than it actually turned out to be, given the synopsis of the storyline.

Sure, this was predictable to the core, and followed the essential "how to make a lifetime drama movie" manuscript. But still, there is just something oddly entertaining about these particular kind of movies in a weird sense.

The movie is about three young friends, Bianca (played by Nicole Gale Anderson), Fallyn (played by Janet Montgomery) and Sarah (Stella Maeve), who find out that Bianca's boyfriend is cheating on her with Dory. Setting out to teach Dory a lesson, the girls drive her out to a remote location, where they play to leave her and let her walk all the way back home. But then something unforeseen happens and things take a turn for the worse. And soon Bianca is finding herself fighting for her innocence and having her two friends turn against her in a web of lies. While incarcerated, it is up to Bianca's mom, Jacqui (played by Cynthia Gibb) to bring out the truth and cleanse her daughter from any accusations.

Of course, you know exactly how the storyline will span out and how it will turn out to be. And yes, director Doug Campbell managed to follow the stereotypical mould to every last shot.

The ending to this movie, was about as abrupt and totally out of sync with the entire movie as it could be. With events that had happened like that, no one would just walk out into an ending like that. It was so anti-climatic.

I will say that the people on the cast list were doing good jobs with their given roles and characters, despite having a very stereotypical script and storyline to work with. Nicole Gale Anderson and Cynthia Gibb did carry the movie quite nicely with their performances in the lead roles.

If you enjoy these sappy kind of lifetime dramas, then you are bound to get enjoyment out of "Accused at 17". I rate this movie a mere 4 out of 10 stars, given the fact of its predictability, stereotypical storyline and the horrendous ending.
