Trivia

In order to keep the film as realistic and current and possible, most of the discussions in the health class discussion scenes was improvised by the actors. Jane Krakowski would simply name a topic and the young actors would answer honestly. See more »

Goofs

When Jacey is playing the DVD that Macey gave to her, it says "For Charlie" on the DVD, but on the opening scene of the video it says "For Charley." The movie credits say that the baby's name is spelled Charley, meaning the name on the DVD is spelled wrong. See more »

Done to death?
20 May 2007 | by jenfromenglandSee all my reviews

When I sat down to watch this it was purely because I had nothing else to do; this subject area's been done to death. Unlike anything else I've seen, this film showed the young mother's perspective and I could actually feel Jacey's pain as she didn't know whether she'd rather have her baby or keep her secret. I also think it showed the incredible sacrifices mothers will make; most other films and programmes about this subject show cold mothers who either kick their daughters out or resent them if they stay, which is not always the case. I would recommend this film to anyone and I hope to see Danielle Panabaker in something else soon as her acting is second-to-none.
