 Synopses for For Keeps (1988)
1.

Although not made as a TV movie of the week, it may as well have been. Molly Ringwald plays an industrious teen headed for college who finds herself pregnant and heading toward disaster in this trite morality play. She pouts and cries a lot; she tries to make everything better. She can't. Things get worse, but she just bounces back. To be fair, this does delve into serious issues. Also, it was produced at a time when most teen movies were either lightweight vehicles by John Hughes or gory slasher flicks. It just feels too contrived, and too glossy, to be taken seriously. This sentiment is underscored when Ringwald and her young hubby seem to be making it as a couple, which is hardly the reality of most teen marriages. --Rochelle O'Gorman

2.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.
