Darcy, editor at her high school paper, and her long-term boyfriend Stan are in their last months of school and already have found places in good colleges. Recently they started to sleep with each other and, surprise, surprise, Darcy gets pregnant. Neither Darcy's mother, who was left by her husband and had to bring up Darcy alone, nor Stan's Catholic parents are very supportive and urge them to have an abortion or give up for adoption respectively. However Darcy's and Stan's love is so intense, they could imagine to have a baby, but this would mean to give up their college careers.Written by

When the script was finished, producer Jerry Belson sent it to Molly Ringwald. Belson said: "Who else would you want to play a teenager in your film?". Indeed, Ringwald had become the pre-eminent actress of her generation, displaying an almost uncanny sensitivity to American teenagers. Still a teenager herself, Ringwald had something like perfect pitch, an instinct for how her peers think, and what they feel, and the talent to express it. Perhaps not surprisingly, Ringwald was enthusiastic about the script Belson sent her. The movie was a natural project for the actress at that stage in her career, presenting her with a unique opportunity to bridge adulthood and adolescence, to grow and mature on screen. See more »
Why don't we just keep it.
Grow up! You had a gerbil last year, you forgot to feed it, it died. This baby is going up for adoption, period.
No. Darcy is not going to lug this baby around for nine months and get stretch marks so you could give it up to Catholic charities.
Mom, what are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are the badge of a real woman.

Excellent depiction of what a young couple goes through when having a baby.
This movie is an excellent depiction of what a young couple goes through when having a baby. I was surprised at how accurate they were, from the reaction of the parents down to the fighting between the couple. I was also surprised at the realism of how they all came around, both of the couples parents realizing that they wanted to be involved in the child's life, and the couple coming around realizing they were fighting for the wrong reasons. This movie took a page right out of my life. To all the teens who read this review, this is what having a baby is really like. Remember life isn't always as easy as it looks in the movies. I give this movie a 10/10....only because it wont let me rate it any higher...it really deserves a 20/10 because it is so good.
