Movie Reviews

Lifetime Should be Congratulated.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"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 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!"
The struggles of teens

"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 !!"
Wonderful Movie!

"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."
