We watched this in Driver's Ed a few weeks ago.
The story focuses on Lizzie, Janie and Kate (Gee, really original names people.), three best friends since kindergarten. Kate's the sickly sweet one, Janie's the rebel, and Lizzie's somewhere in-between. Lizzie has a crush on Janie's dumb jock brother, and the feeling is mutual.

Lizzie and Janie (who are none too bright)'s favorite past time is to get smashed on the weekend with vodka and beer. One night, they drive home drunk and end up crashing. Lizzie lives, Janie (the interesting one) doesn't. Now Lizzie's on trial for vehicular homicide, Janie's mother's got a thirst for vengeance (She does a good job of making us wish she has been in the car), and Dumb Jock Brother's not speaking to Lizzie.

The movie is well meaning, but so completely corny, it kills the message off. And for some reason, Lizzie's mom looks too old for Lizzie's dad (Just my opinion, people.). So don't drink and drive, and you won't have to watch this movie (unless you take Coach Brown's class).
