About the Movie

When high school students Molly Ringwald and Randall Batinkoff fall for each other, they wind up taking a crash course in adulthood in this contemporary romantic comedy. Molly ("The Breakfast Club,""Sixteen Candles") stars as a fledgling journalism student who can't wait to see her name in print. Randall is hoping for a scholarship to Cal Tech. On top of the world and in love, their futures seem idyllic until one little thing throws them off track - a baby. This unexpected "change of events" doesn't sit too well with their moms and dads, who just aren't ready to be grandparents. So Molly and Randall split from their families, get married and begin a life on their own with their new "bundle of job." It doesn't take long before the honeymoon is over, diapers are in, and late dates are out. But in the end, sharing kisses beats doing dishes as Molly, Randall and their families discover that the best love of all is...For Keeps.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Its subject is nominally daring, but in spite of that, For Keeps proceeds with an amazing degree of caution. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jan 6, 2017

For Sure

Although this movie is directed by the guy that did "Rocky" it's not the action that gets me in this well-made movie (there is little of it) but the acting. There is a very sweet and tender atmosphere in this movie that lets off positive vibes as the protagonists face realistic obstacles and overcome them in believable ways (no fancy special effects). It's as funny as it is serious and altogether very entertaining! It tells a good story in a touching manner and the actors are all charming. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

there's something about this movie

I can't tell you what it is about this movie, but I love it. Anytime it's on TV I tune in. I think it's a sweet movie.


I LUV THIS MOVIE! A few of the scenes weren't too good for kids under 14. Eccpecially the rain make out scene and the shower scene. Other than those scenes though, it was excellent! One of Molly Ringwald's best films. It had a good story. It was a really sweet movie. I loved the music too. It had a great message and a beautiful plot. I recommend it to all teens and they're parents.
