Keri russell plays highschooler Erica who has just had a baby.Erica & the babys father Scott have already decided that they are putting the baby up for adoption,only when Erica gives birth she changes her mind & keeps her.Forward to a year,Erica wants Scott to be a part of their childs life only it turns out to be a big mistake when she finds herself caught up in a custody battle.
A very mediocre true life movie where not much happens,by the time it reached the custody battle i was well & truely bored!

This 1997 made for TV drama centres on Erica [Keri Russell], a bright cheerleader, Scott’ [Vince Corazza] her high school ‘football jock’ sweetheart, together they have a love child but he’s not interested and neither is her mother but she ends up keeping the baby. A year later and Erica still wants Scott to be a part of their child’ life but he’s ended up with a mediocre job and she has a college offer and his jealousy of her success tears them apart as he goes for full custody.
The main problem is the film seemingly starts in the middle with the birth of Molly, so the behaviour of the ‘grandparents’ seems odd, bizarre and disfunctional until we are told that before the birth, Erica was a wild party girl but seeing this side of her would have altered the viewers perspective and lost her sympathy [lose a *]. The resulting court case is a farce and the script full of sentimental clichés but it does illustrate the all too true daily realities of bringing up a child which most films of this genre gloss over. Unfortunately I didn’t find either parent likeable. She’s arrogant and self centred, he’s irresponsible with a temper, both are stereotype clichés lacking any real depth [lose another *].
The single disc has no features other than play and scene selection. Film quality and sound are above average for a TV movie –as is the overall acting, and it does tug on the emotional heartstrings despite the gaffs and lack of reality but still a reasonable *** family view as it lacks swearing and nudity.

Keri Russell (known more for her long hair and baby looks) is just perfect for this role. The story is of a young teen couple (so much in love) that have a baby together. Both still at school, sacrifices have to be made, and she seems to be making most of them. The mothers' of the couple have their own say and interfere (under the 'only trying to help' motto) which causes tensions to mount and an inevitable break-up of the young partnership. This is when the film really gets going. One sues the other and vice-versa for custody of the child, and the tension racks up continually until the final court hearing. I won't go deeper into the plot so as not to spoil your enjoyment, but it ends with a small twist in the tail. As far as teen US romantic dramas go this is a cut above average. Keri Russell plays her role of teenager mother very well but is just a little too self-assured for a person so young in this situation. However, perhaps she's just mature for her age. She has a very supportive mother (so understanding) that sticks with her through thick and thin. It is refreshing to have a thought provoking rather than tear-jearking ending, so no need for the tissues. A good watch as long as you accept how the film makers usually gloss over the true daily realities of bringing up a child - let alone as a single young mother. In my opinion this warrants a solid 7 out of 10 for entertainment and 9 out of 10 for value.

It was very good movie and it was about a custody case between mother and father. I would recommend this.

I enjoy true stories and was looking forward this one only to find that it was the right box right name on the dvd but the wrong film when play.
