Did You Know?


Most of the movie occurs on or around July 4th, in Louisville, KY, with a character's 18th birthday within a week. The final scenes are noted as "Six Months Later," but show the same character's 18th birthday pool party, in what would be January, where the high temperature is 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius.)

Strangest casting
8 April 2020 | by timetopooptodaySee all my reviews

Ashley is awesome in everything she does, and while she looked young enough to play an 18 year-old, everyone kind of already knows she was about 25 when this was filmed. Then we have the woman who played the mom and she was 35 per the actress's actual age upon filming, so what, she had this boy at 16 or 17 and then somehow finished high school and college and became a famous author? Ashley Rickards is only 9 or 10 years younger than Nicky Whelan. So they looked like a very odd group in this movie. All the actors were pretty unknown - except Rickards - which leads me to believe that they cast it then decided to try and get an actual star for this. The acting was not horrible, it's the way it was shot and produced that makes it Lifetime Movie Nightmare. It's also after all is said and done after a showdown...with everyone giggling? I don't want to give any spoilers but it's the worst writing ever because it's absurdly predictable - unless you're 12. I really hope they paid Rickards a lot to put herself into this movie because this is the kind of stuff that ruins careers. She's way better than this.
