Editorial Reviews

Inspired by real news events. Sidney Bloom (Thora Birch), an online magazine journalist, returns to her hometown to investigate the sudden spike in teenage pregnancies at her old high school. Almost immediately, she comes up against Lorraine Dougan (Nancy Travis), the head of the local conservative values group and m other of Sara, a newly pregnant 15-year-old. As the number of pregnant girls climbs to 18, a media firestorm erupts when Time Magazine reports that the rise in the number of pregnancies at the school is the result of a pregnancy pact . Sidney soon realizes that all the attention is disguising the much larger issues that are at the core of the story.

This was interesting for me to watch, especially from the point of view of a practicing Catholic. I had only vaguely heard of a story about some high school girls that supposedly had a pact to all get pregnant at the same time fueled by some fantasy idea of how it would be to have their cute little babies, all girls of course, dressing them uo, cooking their dinners, they'd all go to school together and be best friends. I honestly hope that a girl does not reach the age of 15 or worse, 17 and think that having a baby without any education, financial stability or emotional maturity would be fun. And those who made that mistake certainly could tell a different story. But this movie made it seem like small town American girls are dumb and would honesty dream up a scheme like this.

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.

Very good movie!!! Every teen girl should see this movie. Not just to teach them what teen moms go through but also how being a follower can drastically take you down the wronh road and one that doesnt just affect you. Be your own person, form your own identity. Its okey to be different!! Just be yourself and rely on God for your strength. Hes always there to listen. Hope u like the movie! :-)

This issue was an interesting one some years ago in a small New England town. When several girls decide to get pregnant at the same time, the town gets its place on the map and the media invades asking questions. It is all the families can do to keep their privacy, let alone dignity, when the secret is out. The movie profiles several girls' lives, all from a lower socio-economic level.

"Pregnancy Pact" is another Lifetime Channel movie that straddles the uneasy line between well meaning social commentary and lurid melodrama. A ripped from the headlines plot is inspired by the Massachusetts case that received national news coverage involving an extremely high preponderance of high school girls getting (you guessed it) pregnant. The real life story was, without doubt, fascinating and disturbing. So I held out hope that the hype surrounding the actual circumstances might elevate Lifetime to produce an accounting of more substance than their usual output. A cast of unknowns--except the A grade talent of Thora Birch, Nancy Travis, and Camryn Manheim--is stranded with a lackluster and obvious script that hopes to illuminate the issue of teen pregnancy but really just makes everyone seem a bit (or a lot) foolish.

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.

I did not follow the 2008 real life story, so this is all new to me. I figured the movie would have begun with the girls making the pact and telling us why they planed to get pregnant, but instead we see a bunch of girls pregnant, some already with child and their just having babies for the fun of it. it isn't til the 55 minute mark where the pact is actually brought up. The movie actually makes the girls look dumb and naive. Some are I know 2 15 year olds and a 17 year old that were pregnant, it was shocker to everyone....except me. I saw it coming. Regardless this is a serious issue, you can find the stats everywhere online. Ever watch MTV's 16 and Pregnant? Apparently that show hasn't helped much.

On a side note The Video Blogger has gorgeous eyes.

I love this movie. I always watched in on YouTube or some other site and I finally purchased it. It came with a break in the DVD, not a scratch, broke. However, it still works (somehow) so I'll call myself lucky. Gave it three stars since it came broke.

This movie was supposed to be based on real life events, but I'm not sure how much of it was really true and how much was made up. The teenagers are typical of what you would see in a Lifetime movie- very ignorant. The girls are portrayed as being needy girls who have sex to keep their boyfriends and expect that they are going to get married. Honestly I would rather stop seeing this stupid stereotype in movies. I know teenage girls are obviously a little naive, but come on. Many girls date different boys in high school, maybe have sex with them, and don't expect to get married. As far as pregnancy and birth control, ignorance continues to abound. The teens don't know the first thing about having a baby or caring for it. They apparently think that they can just have a baby but they won't have to pay for anything. One girl wants to have sex but is too afraid to go in and buy condoms.

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.
