Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Checking in at two hours, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this slight tale of first love had taken its title rather too literally. Adapted from the novel by Judy Blume, there are the requisite number of sentimental moments, but the hesitancy Stephanie Zimbalist shows in deciding how to handle her relationship with Dean Butler is nothing compared to the torpid direction of the usually reliable John Korty. The teenagers are appealing enough, but surely there's no need for emotional input from both Zimbalist's parents and grandparents?
