a truly excellent movie
this movie is a true gem. this is a great movie to teach young people the true meaning of having a child. a lot of kids think having a child is easy; it is not. i'm only 14 about to be 15 and i know this. tina starts off as a self-centered spoiled rotten brat. her dysfunctional family already has enough problems. mom and dad are in the midst of marital stress, rachel, the sister who happens to be the middle child doesn't feel she gets adequate love she needs. i'll admit i didn't really care how rachel felt because i thought she was a little brat. but then again so was tina. but obviously she acted like this to seek attention. adam, the brother just doesn't seem to care about anything. people react differently to situations like these. rachel got her comfort from her food and her grandmother. she did everything in her reach to seek attention. tina turned to her trashy boyfriend for love and as a result got pregnant. she thought that he "loved" her when he really didn't. this movie has a lot of lessons within. it shows how the biggest problem can unite a family together and make them stronger. tina comes to terms with her pregnancy and it makes her a stronger and better person. when we think the biggest problem is truly hopeless it makes something good and makes us stonger people. teen pregnancy is a common thing nowadays. back in the day it was considered an embarassment and a dishonor. it is especially a dishonor to Christian people like myself. but it seems more acceptable now. keep one thing in mind, not every girl is fortuante enough to have a supporting family like tina's. i have seen a few tv movies about teen pregnancy but i believe this one is the best. great acting, great chemistry between cast, and many hidden lessons within. it teaches how the most selfish girl can turn out to be a caring and loving mother for her child. when you have a child you have to care more about the child than you yourself. check this movie out. i recommend it to anyone. 10 stars out of 10. very well done!
