good movie
16 May 2004 | by pushpopswirls03See all my reviews

Hey all I got this movie off of someone on Ebay. I watched this movie the other day. it was really good. I thought that it would teach children not to drink. And not to do it before marriage cause that might get them pregnant. It was a good movie for me to watch. i know I will never drink or do it before marriage. I thought Suzanne Somers did a good job in this movie and so did the other characters. I will watch this movie over and over again it was so good. well thats all i have to say about this movie. I would recommend you see this movie. It would teach you a good lesson. I thought the little girl Kate was so cute. and how she grew up at the end and Emma got married at the end of the movie.
