good film to foster discussion on date rape
18 February 2005 | by prschroederSee all my reviews

As one of those health teachers, I will say that although my 9th graders groan at several lines of dialog, other lines of dialog are "spot on" perfect, like when the older boy is sweet talking and manipulating the younger, impressionable girl. And though the girl is never to blame in these situations, we have a nice discussion of all the mistakes she made, and all the warning signs she ignored that led to the (date) rape. Though this film is dated, it is a helpful film on an important subject.

As far as acting and production values, the acting is neither outstanding or horrible, it doesn't call attention to itself in either respect so it is fine. Also, there is an added bonus or point of interest with Lori Loughlin starring in the film as she currently is featured in a TV show that is on (as of 2005) and recognized by many of the students.
