Is It Any Good?

Sure, the film isn't afraid to discuss abortion or the inevitable fears and insecurities of teen pregnancy, but it's frustrating to see Brian make decisions without considering the consequences. An awkward miscommunication leads Leslie to believe that Brian's ready to be a dad, but sarcastic and sometimes cynical voiceovers reveal Brian's true feelings. His admission that he's a terrible person -- combined with both insincere speeches pledging support and immature actions like having sex with another girl instead of helping Leslie move into his dorm -- make it difficult to feel sympathy for Brian.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
