Not Like Any Other Molly Ringwald Movie You've Seen!
Sallie A. Martin | OK | 06/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a typical brat pack movie. 80's music doesn't blare in the background, there isn't a group of characters that seem to stay together in films. But, it's just as good as all of the other brat pack movies. There is only one brat pack member, and one is all it needs- Molly Ringwald.
Molly plays a high school senior named Darcy who is in love. Her boyfriend, Stan is played by Randall Batinkoff. Even though he is not a popular actor, he really shows talent in this film. When a night of passion in the rain leads to Darcy getting pregnant, they are faced with an important decision. Her mom says abortion, his parents say adoption. Stan and Marcy say "we're keeping it". When they are shunned from the family, they are forced to grow up quickly- marriage, jobs, bills and putting off college are all things this couple go through in the name of love. But will this love for eachother be enough to keep their family together?
This is a serious movie that looks at teenage pregnancy. It's not intended to be used as a brochure, but just as a fictional "what-if". Molly Ringwald really shows true talent in this movie, dealing with more than just missed birthdays and a day of dentention. Although this film was made in the mix of the other 80's cult flicks, this one sticks out as a source of seeing the true talent that Molly has."
Teen Struggle & Love
Dorrie Wheeler | 04/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"For Keeps where shall I start. For Keeps is one of those 80's movies that would fit perfect on The Lifetime Network. Molly Ringwald stars as Darci Elliot and Randall Batinkoff stars as Stan Bobrutz (intentional hard to spell and pronoucne name, it is the butt of several jokes in the film). The two high school sweethearts are sent fast forward into adult hood when Darci becomes pregnant. They struggle to stay together. I think this film is great because it shows young people just how hard things can be when you introduce a baby into the picture. It is not one of those happily ever after stories, Stan and Darci go through some real hard times. The movie itself takes a real awkward turn towards the end with Darci pushing Stan to pursue his dreams without his knowledge, but the movie will entertain those in 6th grade and up. Its a bit pricey but it is good for educational use and for the 80's fan building their collection."
Excellent message for teens!

"Molly Ringwald shines in this film as she portrays a high school senior who ends up pregnant. She and the father get married and try to stick it out... she tries to work while pregnant, he tries to help his dad out... nothing seems to work. They get their own place and have to deal with their electricity being shut off so they end up moving in with her mother, which is difficult for everyone.
Molly's husband has gotten a scholarship to a prestigious school and he's willing to give it up to help her with the baby, but she doesn't want him to. In the end she just about forces him to take the scholarship and he does.
Mixed in with the humor and comedy, there is a great lesson on teen pregnancy and getting married young. It's harder than it looks and this is an excellent movie for young girls to watch and learn from!"
