Trivia

According to star Paul Carafotes during a 2019 interview, he's the mystery man Demi Moore slept with on the night before she tied the knot with first husband Freddy Moore in 1981 while Carafotes and Moore were making this movie. While the actress didn't reveal the man's identity in her memoir "Inside Out," the actor told UK's DailyMailTV that Moore snuck out of her own bachelorette party to spend the night with him. He said he thinks she just wanted to have a last hurrah before she got married. See more »

Boring Teen Drama
8 February 2017 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

There is a partially deaf guy who has a girlfriend, plays in the school orchestra and plays football. His doctor ordered him to get off the football team and his parents agree. His best friends are fighting to keep on the football team. His parents want him to focus on and excel in the orchestra. The guy gets mad about it, sulks, almost falls into the wrong crowd over it but he's still falling in-love with his high school sweetheart. All of this is done in the most boring and overly dramatic way to tell the story of this teenage guy.

I was bored with this right from the start of the film. There is a low rating on this film for a reason - it's just to boring. I realize that teens will get upset at the weirdest things -- especially if they can't play football anymore but to (almost) fall into a bad crowd over it and get huffy is way out there.
