Trivia

This movie is loosely based on the murder of Jeanette Garcia of San Antonio, Texas. She was reported missing on February 12, 1993. She was 15-years old and approximately 3 months pregnant at the time of her death.

Garcia was kidnapped and tortured for twelve days before she was strangled. Her body was discovered by a road crew off of Highway 46 in Canyon Lake, Texas.

The case remains unsolved. See more »

Goofs

When the trio emerges moments later from the courthouse door, the two older women have mysteriously swapped sides, so that Tina is now on Nicole's right. See more »

Good until last 15 minutes
5 January 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Nicole Voss (Ari Meyers) is the head cheerleader, and Greg Dunleavy (Mark Kassen) is the captain of the football team. Together they form a perfect couple except he cheats on her with Emily DeCapprio (Soleil Moon Frye). She gets pregnant and makes demands on Greg. Greg turns and kills her. Meanwhile Nicole befriends missing Emily's mother Tina (Tess Harper) without knowing their other connection.

This would make a fairly good after school special or Lifetime movie. It has good elements in this. The young couple are nice white bread teenagers. Punky Brewster doesn't have that much screen time. Tess Harper is absolutely solid as the grieving mother.

There are problems with the last 15 minutes. The cop was too dismissive, and how hard is it for her to yell out that she found the button? Instead she steals a file from the cops. It would have been better if Greg just go nuts after the party. The final ending is just a big letdown.
