Widowed mother Alexandra Paul (as Michelle Ross) is happy when high school-aged daughter Amanda Bauer (as Lexi) is asked out by hunky football star Andy Fischer-Price (as Gregory "Greg" Nickels). Turns out the handsome jock wants to win a $50 bet he can bed any girl, even a virgin with some prudish rep. To prove his conquest, Mr. Fischer-Price records the encounter on his laptop. Missing her bigger-than-two-hot-dogs ex-boyfriend, jealous Katie Gill (as Carleigh Taylor) learns about the recording, sneaks into the boys' locker room, and makes it viral...
The public sex tape causes a chain reaction of tragedy...
"Betrayed at 17" starts out by updating a familiar plot - guy dates girl on a bet, then seriously likes her; she finds out, dumps him, but they get together in the end. This "Lifetime" TV-movie does not follow the formula. It will likely keep you watching and guessing. Most of the promotional material mentions a suicide occurring; there is no suicide. A parallel story involves Ms. Paul's druggie son Jake Thomas (as Shane), who has been kicked out of the house. Mr. Thomas performs his role well and becomes more prominent as the film progresses. Campbell, Conradt and Sanders move it nicely.
