this film is so awesome
3 July 2006 | by georgina1519See all my reviews

I first watched this film when i was ten years old and i loved it. i love babies and anything to do with babies. I now do health and social care and i realised what percentage of teenage girls actually get pregnant in a year. where i live in northolt we the second highest teenage pregnancy rate in england. But the main reason i liked this film is because it looks at what teenage mums or mums-to-be go through during or after their pregnancy. Fifteen and Pregnant also involved the good and bad possibilities that can happen and i think it showed any teenage girl who watch this film what to expect and will in the future. I would recommend this film to my friends. And it's one of those films that you watch over and over again. To be honest i watched it two days ago on true movies on sky. I think that more true stories like this should be shown in schools to cut down on pregnancy rates across the world. It may help, it may not, but we can try.
