Synopsis

In this romantic comedy, 17-year-old Halley Martin (Mandy Moore) is a confused and disappointed high-school student in the midst of turmoil and bad relationships who must move beyond them to experience real love. Her parents (Peter Gallagher and Allison Janney) are recently divorced, and her father has already hooked up with a younger woman. Halley’s best friend Scarlett (Alexandra Holden) is sleeping with her boyfriend and ends up pregnant. And her sister (Mary Catherine Garrison) is about to get married to a guy with whom she constantly fights. Through all of the confusion, a somewhat odd boy, Macon Forrester (Trent Ford), begins paying her a lot of attention.

Dove Review

The film may provide an opportunity for good discussion on important issues between kids and parents, but its foul language and drug use prevent Dove from awarding the Dove Seal for family-friendly entertainment.
