9 July 2002 | what the
Well-intentioned yet LAME!
For Keeps is a movie with good intentions yet I found it to be obvious and lame. The script does not sound the way that real people talk- it sounded very much like the way middle-age people think teenagers talk. The characters seemed too cliched to really have an impact.

And what was wrong with Molly Ringwald? She was so real and interesting as an actress in Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles, and so dull and uninteresting here. I don't want to sound like a grouch, but For Keeps just seemed poorly made. The characters were simplistic and shrill - especially the parents. "Stretch marks are the badge of a real woman!" bellowed the dad. Puleease, I used to teach middle and high school, my students would not buy these characters for a minute. They just seemed false and overly stereotypical. I was in high school in 1988 when this came out and I did not buy it either. Real people are much more complex and interesting. Teen pregnancy is a potentially rich subject for a film, the teens who could benefit from a well-done movie about it. A disappointing 4 out of 10 for this well-intentioned mess.
