SPOILER ALERT ⚠ And of course, as expected, because: Hollywood, the girls in this story had girls, the boys dumped them and it was awful. Except for the main character who's family rallied around her and turned her young teen nursery into a baby nursery.
It would have been much better if they'd shown a more positive view of adoption and warned against the dangers of drinking and smoking while pregnant.
Anyway, it was a good way to pass a lazy Sunday afternoon. It is entertaining, the acting wasn't awful, it was just too unrealistic, like it couldn't decide whether to be a real life documentary or cutesy Hollywood drama.
The premise, obviously, has some merit being grounded by actual events. And the movie starts out promisingly enough. A school nurse (Manheim) pursues more awareness in the schools after having administered a ridiculously high percentage of pregnancy tests in the preceding year. Unbeknownst to the conservative authority figures, a group of girls are actively seeking to bring babies into the world. One of the primary proponents of an abstinence only education is Travis, but she soon gets blind-sided that her perfect daughter may be caught up in a bigger scandal. Luckily a roving Internet blogger (Birch) is on hand to blow the lid off the story. If it sounds a bit odd to have a blogger doing the legwork--well, it is!
It all boils down to expected stereotypes--different factions and different politics--everyone is represented in some rudimentary form. The girls themselves are particularly silly--even villainous as painted by the film.Read more ›
On a side note The Video Blogger has gorgeous eyes.
The teenage boys were portrayed as just going along with it and having sex without any regard for the consequences. Apparently they don't have any problem with having sex without a condom. Then when these 18 girls turn up pregnant, it's all their fault, and no blame is put on the fathers of the babies who obviously also chose not to use a condom.
As far as the "church committee" or whatever it was, I couldn't figure out what exactly they were doing making decisions for a public school. They make the decisions about whether birth control is handed out? They pay for the day care? That is insane. There is no reason for there to be a day care at the school, when there are programs to help women pay for child care already. The movie acted as if, if there was no day care these girls would automatically have to drop out and then have no life after that. Uh...wrong.Read more ›
