I actually really liked the movie, the characters. The characters were believable and well acted and developed.
there's a but.
I actually didn't like this movie for bigger reasons.
It's about an 18 year old boy who dies the night he finally asks a girl, he's loved for several years, out on a date and yes, you guessed it, they have sex. Then he dies. Well, she gets pregnant and shows up at his parents door 3 months later. They never knew her and have to come to terms with all their feelings and emotions knowing she is carrying their dead son's baby.
OK, the reasons I don't like this movie is they had to put in those liberal pro-choice (pro abortion) things. Like, the girl says something like she's only keeping the baby because the father is dead, otherwise she would have "chosen" something different. The boy's mother, played by Susan Sarandon, wanted her to abort the baby.
It's like Hollywood can't just make a pro-life movie. It has to be a chosen thing. The woman chose to keep the baby, otherwise she would have chosen to not keep the baby.
It's a baby, Hollywood, not a choice.
I wish we wouldn't have watched it...
Same with this one. This was really good until the end. They did a great job of developing their relationship and most of the movie was about the 2 weeks where they met and got to know eachother, but towards the end (after they slept together) they tried to throw a bunch of stuff in that happened while he was away in service. It didn't fit, and was disappointing.
