It was just meh. An ok story line, but it seemed really preachy in areas.(Spoilers ahead)








Bad Police. Bad Media. Bad bad bad. Good kid. Good family. Good good good. The End.

The policeman who rushes to judgement and ignores evidence / forces facts to fit his theory based on his dislike of the father from years ago. The media who sensationalize and try the accused in the press. I wasn't impressed but it was a pleasant evening's entertainment.

Either a scathingly funny satire or an incredibly terrible bit of pap. Sadly, I don't think they intended it to be satire. It will keep you awake on a long car trip laughing at it.

Well that was two hours I'll never get back. Poorly written and just stupid. The main two characters drop out of college and get married at 20. They are whiny, self-centered, and apparantly rich, since they don't have to work. Oh, and very very religious. Then at 38 one decides to have kids. But she has trouble getting pregnant and goes to the one doctor in California who has never heard of infertility treatment. So after a couple of years of Robitussin (no I am not making this up) she gets pregnant. Then when the baby is 5 months old they take it to the ER because it is teething. (still not making this up) All of these crises require both friends and both spouses to drop everything and take part. Then the woman gets early onset Alzheimers. So they ignore it for a couple of years and let her take care of the baby, even though she can't drive, remember peoples names or read. Other than that, nothing. Oh but they pray. A lot. Personally I would go for some Aricept.

Just a waste of paper and ink...

Seed of discontent are sown, not sewn. Unless the terrorists are using a needle and thread.

Otherwise, ok. Reads like a TV movie, wraps up neatly by the 58 minute mark.

Preachy and boring. A group of high school girls get stupid and decide to all get pregnant while in HS. The blow off college, and have no plans for paying for the babies other than living at home. The parents all gossip and wring their hands instead of dragging their daughters down to the clinic to take care of the problem.

Preachy and boring. By the end, I just didn't care anymore about the characters.
