Darcy, editor at her high school paper, and her long-term boyfriend Stan are in their last months of school and already have found places in good colleges. Recently they started to sleep with each other and, surprise, surprise, Darcy gets pregnant. Neither Darcy’s mother, who was left by her husband and had to bring up Darcy alone, nor Stan’s Catholic parents are very supportive and urge them to have an abortion or give up for adoption respectively. However Darcy’s and Stan’s love is so intense, they could imagine to have a baby, but this would mean to give up their college careers.

User Reviews: I’ve seen this movie a couple of times and I love it to death! I’d have to say that I have two all time favorite movies, and this is a tie with The Year My Voice Broke. This movie, is set in (present day -which at the time was 1988)in a small town of the U.S. These two high school sweethearts get pregnant, and decide that although both sets of parents are against it, they are going to get married. It’s the story of their successes and trials that they face throughout their pregnancy and once the baby is born while they are married. Molly Ringwald is wonderful in the movie, but then, I think she’s one of the most talented actresses, who unfortunately was type-casted so much, really wasn’t able to overcome it after the ’80s. Her leading man is also very good. I found him to be a great pick for that role, and he made you believe he really was his character. This movie is sweet, sincere, and really true to what the message is trying to say. I love this movie, and hope that all of you will take the time to watch it. It’s not only educational but romantic, and heartwarming. I give it a 10 out of 10.
That’s my review.
