"Freshman Father" has no real emotion or thought, only fresh actors
24 July 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Freshman Father" is a made-for-TV Hallmark movie. The story is just as the title says: A recent high school graduate gets his sweetheart pregnant and they movie to Boston where he juggles becoming a father with maintaining his Harvard scholarship. The movie is just as bad as it seems.

This is based on a true story, and most of the problems lie in that fact. The writer seems to have taken events and put them together without any connection. I'm assuming the real story was somewhat interesting, but here they found a way to tell it as boring as possible. There was no emotion, affection, or sentiment, not even any humour or romance.

The relatively new, up-and-coming actors, Britt Irvin and Andrew Seeley, were actually pretty good considering what they were given. But other than that, there is nothing to draw you in. All we have in "Freshman Father" is a story about college and young parenthood but written by someone who doesn't know anything about either, except for what he has learned from made-for-TV movies.
