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 »

Quotes

Macy: And now you're the screwed up and I'm the good kid. I'm the one who they can point to and say "This is our good child. She only gets B's and C's, but she's the one who didn't get pregnant".
Jacey Jeffries: Shut up!

Movie with a definite story behind the story!
25 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This was a good movie with a great story! I liked Danielle Panabaker's character in this one. She plays a mom who is still in High School and has her divorced mom takes care of her son while she's in school. In the middle of the two of them is Jacy's sister Macy who is felling the abuse of the mother/daughter relationship. The father of the baby is nowhere to be found. That is, until the middle of the movie where we see Jacy going to see him and tell him that he has a kid! He doesn't believe her and rejects her! Jane Krakowski plays a teacher that talks about teen sex and having babies. The catch is, she can't have any kids. So she goes to a Dr. that tells her she has to adopt! It's definitely a good one to watch!!
