This is a good movie but not worth the price listed.I bought this movie for 5.99 now it says 69 bucks! Really why are you trying to take advantage of loyal customers. it really makes me rethink buying online.

“For Keeps” is one of my favorite movies and Molly Ringwald plays her role convincingly and brilliantly as a college bound senior who gets a bit of surprise in the summer before she goes to college. In a teen drama, an unexpected pregnancy throws her plans off course and the dynamics of her relationship with her boyfriend off balance until she begins to discover what is really important.

When this movie came out in 1988 it was an instant favorite of mine. I suppose I loved it for personal reasons. I could relate well to the characters as I was a pregnant high school senior who was also married at the time. I remember being seven months pregnant as a walked across the stage to get my diploma.

I respected that this movie did not glamorize teenage pregnancy. Everything wasn't perfect and rosey between the two main characters Darcy and Stan. Darcy and Stan are high school sweethearts who find themselves pregnant. After some debate over termination or adoption they decide to marry and keep the baby. They suffer some financial difficulties and make compromises on their dreams. At one point Darcy commits a most unselfish act and breaks up with Stan so that he may pursue his life long dream. But love prevails in the end.

My husband and I know first hand how difficult it was to be young parents. We also know that there isn't much to glamorize about teenage pregnancy or marrying young. But like the characters of Darcy and Stan we also know that love can prevail.

This movie reminds me of that time. I'm Darcy and my husband is Stan. It's been 25 + years and we are still married and still in love.

My daughter (22) and I got on an 80s movie kick and I introduced her to this one. She liked it and it brought me back in time.

I love this movie. I watched it years ago and cried when they cried and laughed when they laughed. I did the same thing when I watched last week. It is a timeless story of love and devotion just as good today as they year it came out in the cinema.
