Editorial Reviews

A suburban mom is stunned to find her 14-year-old daughter is part of a group where casual sex is the norm... and shocked even more to discover the town's indifference to the problem. But this is a fight she - and no parent - can afford to lose.

This is, by far and away, the best original movie I've seen Lifetime aire on their network. It made me really think about how glad I am to have grown up in the late 70's and early 80's when being "good" was still mostly considered the norm. The kids where I live are the basic same age as the ones portrayed in this story--some even younger--and they are doing a lot of the same things as the aberrant teenagers depicted here. They also have the same cocky I-don't-have-to-listen-to-you attitude.

What's funny, however, is I recall getting smart with my own mother about the topic of sex and various other things, and I realize looking back that some things never change. Kids may think they're old enough to do the things their parents tell them not to do, but they still don't know any more than we ever did. Excellent job by our main character Alexis Dziena as a basically good but troubled teen who is battling with dangerous social norms and Marcia Gay Harden as her mother taking the bull by the horns once an epidemic of syphilis breaks out among the students. Unlike years ago, I approved of the majority of her actions and feelings, but I'm also grateful I don't have kids in this sexually charged society. There are some very disturbing pictures of untreated syphilis when Dziena's character looks them up on the net, and the topic is troublesome in a good way.

This movie should be mandatory viewing in all high schools because, as one woman in the movie said, you can preach abstinence all you want, but sooner or later most of these kids are going to play follow the leader. Hopefully, this well-done movie will make them think before they act.

I watched this movie the night it premeried on Lifetime,they had been showing preview's for it all weekend and me and my aunt figured why not watch it. I loved it! I think it gives you a good view of what's going in the minds of girls 16 and below,everyone wants to be popular and some kids will go to great heights to get there. But this movie doesn't only show you that it show's you how naive parents can be when it comes to there children,and how even if it's your best friend coming to you telling you what's really going on you still won't believe it until it's too late.

A Kid's Review on November 28, 2004
Format: DVD
I have seen this on Lifetime from the first time it premiered to the next couple times it came on. I only watched it because I heard Miriam McDonald from Degrassi would be playing Dawn.

I think it proves a good point to teen age girls like Becca, Hannah, and Dawn that are living in familys that seem too perfect or family's like Dawn's who have mother's that act too young and don't put up a good example. I give this movie 5 stars and I can't wait to get the DVD on March!

This movie once again shows that ignorance can hurt those we are trying to potrect the most. This sad story of a girl ignorance about sexual acts and their consequences are shown in this movie with insight and caring, and I think with the desired to teach our teens to be more respectful of their bodies and what their careless behavior might bring into their lives. My daughter recommends this movie with great enthusiasm.

This movie is really good for the pre-teen who is struggling to make the right choices. I thought this movie was great! Im hearing that now girls as young as 8 are having oral sex because they want to be popular/cool and I like this movie because it shows the consequences of doing the wrong thing just to be popular. Every young girl needs to see this one!

WOW! AWESOME movie!!! This movie is about the struggle of teens. Sex and std's is an ongoing issue and you never really think it could happen to your child. But one mother found out she was wrong. This is some thing that can even happen to the "good" kids. This is a movie I would recommend to all teens and parents. They should watch it together. Thanks life time !!

I actually saw this in my health class this year. For a health class movie, it was pretty good, or at least a nice break from normal informational movies from the seventies (thankfully they're getting away from those now), still in my view it seems overly catastrophicist. They also didn't delve into the sex-ed programmes at the subject school, and it seemed like they shifted the entire focus of the "epidemic" to the students and parents.

Then again, the focus on syphillis is an interesting choice, especially since with the advent of HIV/AIDS, other STDs have fallen into the background on main education, and in the case of many teens, fallen to the realm of jokes. This may prevent teens from taking this movie seriously.

I LOVE this movie. It has all of the basic lifetime elements and drama. A perfect high schooler who becomes the prey of the hunk of the school and gets an std! It gets better everytime I watch it. I Recommend to any lifetime movie fan.
