What not to do
24 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a fine example of making every bad decision you could possibly make. From abortion to an affair with a married person to teen sex to getting drunk. They do it all but somehow it all works out in the end and everyone will live happily ever after. If you watch this as a movie about what not to do then it would be OK. They could have done a move about pro-abortion and teen angst without the B story of the guy coming back to sell his father's house. The main (A) was about the girl and her problems. His story was real superfluous. I lived near Lebanon for three years. Even though it was not my favorite place to live I can tell you that not everybody is a redneck. It is also not that conservative. It is more conservative than Philly but it is not Redneck country. I could not recommend this movie to anyone.
