When Bianca finds out her boyfriend cheated on her with Dory, a classmate, she's furious and out for revenge. Bianca and her best friends, Fallyn and Sarah, team up to play a prank on the girl to make her pay. The three lure her to a remote location, intending to abandon her, so she has to walk home alone in the dark. But when Dory doesn't show up to school the next day, everyone, including Bianca, starts to worry... It's not until Dory's dead body is found and Bianca and her mother go to the police, that this childish prank leads to an more adult outcome... an outcome where one murder may not be enough to silence the truth.

Premiering as a Lifetime network original movie, "Accused at 17" has all the trappings that you would expect from such a distinction. I can be critical of the Lifetime brand with movies that tend to veer between sensationalized instances based on real life and thrillers of fantastical proportions. "Accused at 17" is a rare example of these genres being mashed (although, for the record, this isn't based on a true story). Despite a welcome performance by Cynthia Gibb, this movie ends up not being particularly successful in either realm. Too earnest to be an effective thriller and too silly to be a heartfelt examination of mother love, the movie straddles an uneasy balance. Ultimately, it is watchable and reasonably entertaining without being particularly noteworthy or distinguished.

The premise is intriguing enough and shows promise. When a popular student messes with the boyfriend of a fellow classmate, the betrayed girl is none too happy. Her friends concoct a scheme to exact revenge, but things go terribly awry when the victim turns up dead. Gibb's daughter, the girl who was cheated on, doesn't know what is going on despite participating in the event. And soon all signs and evidence start to implicate her in the death. Will anyone believe in her innocence? You bet! Mother Gibb strikes to protect her cub and launches a one-woman investigation into the truth. This exploration of the mother/daughter bond is reasonably successful and provides some of the film's most grounded moments. Had the film focused on this element, we might have gotten a fairly believable and touching story of sacrifice and belief.

However, the story paints certain performances as snarling and evil cartoon villains.

Lifetime movies are hit-or-miss affairs, typically high on drama but lacking in the plot/acting department. This movie is an exception to that. The story involves a group of four teenage girls, one of which is the outsider in the group. The three other girls decide that they should play a prank on her, which predictably goes terribly wrong, as teenage pranks typically do.

This prank, however, results in murder, and of course the three girls try to pin it on the other one. This sounds like a story that has been re-used over and over again. and it is, but the movie is fun and entertaining to watch. Cynthia Gibb gives a strong performance as a mother in a tight spot trying to prove that her daughter is not a murderer.

This DVD will not play on standard US DVD players, as it is region 2. However, the movie typically runs on LMN and Lifetime frequently. Recommended if you are a fan of movies like "Sorority Row" and "The Woods."

I gave this movie 3 stars which I think was exceedingly generous. I am unable to comprehend how so many people think this mediocre movie AT BEST could ever warrant 4 stars. It was not all that well written, overall poorly acted and unconvincing and it wasn't even based on a true story from the investigation I have done on it.
I used to be a big fan of Lifetime and it's movies but there are rarely any well made, good quality movies made by Lifetime, Hollywood or by anyone for that matter anymore.
I yearn for more movies like Gracie's Choice, Lies My Mother Told Me and Homeless to Harvard. THOSE were enthralling, well written, very well acted and in a league far from this movie.
I guess if you are looking for something to pass the time this movie is ok..... otherwise get real with the ratings people!!

when you are young and trusting of others its hard to believe that the closest to you could be the ones that hurt you the most. i recommend this to teens and parents of teens. when it comes to things like this you will see how fast your friends will turn on you like the plague. that went way back to my time. way way back to the 80's hehe. mothers watch with your children or grand children.
