C. Thomas Howell,
Adam (Kevin Mundy) is a senior at Gatlin High. His girlfriend Amber (Reagan Pasternak) is "saving herself for marriage." In the meantime he gets acquainted with Gynger (Alycia Purrott) and gets her pregnant. The local prosecutor Lydia Stone (Mo Gaffney) is running for mayor and decides to charge Adam with statutory rape to get the "moral majority" vote.Written by
During both of Gynger's hospital scenes, you can hear a "Dr. Moyle" called on the PA. Allan Moyle is the director. See more »

Three versions of the credits exist. The edited MTV version shows a segment about what the film was based on. The first time the movie aired on MTV, the music video for Fenix, TX's "All My Fault" (theme from the movie) was shown on the credits. The DVD omits both those endings and instead shows bloopers and outtakes from the film. See more »
I absolutely loved this movie. It is a perfect cast of actors playing very recognizable stereotypes that are present in every American high school. The script, though no work of Shakespeare, is well-done and is full of great, memorable lines (Gynger to Adam's parents, "I'm pregnant, you know, like Mary was with Jesus - only I know who the father is"). I think some of these other commenters must be parents or atl east adults lacking a sense of humor and taking this movie WAY too seriously. The movie definitely does not encourage promiscuous teen sex or other such "bad" behaviors - if anything it discourages them by showing all the headache following unprotected sex (Gynger got pregnant, Adam and Gynger screwed up the relationship between each other, between Adam and Amber, and with their parents - besides the fact that Adam nearly went to prison). I think it's cute that little Gynger is the sexual aggressor in the lust affairs - usually guys are blamed for pressuring girls into stuff.
It's a funny, tongue-in-cheek look at the adult perception of teens and teenage sex and the stereotypes in my generation - a must see for any teen and a must-avoid for any uptight parents/adults.
