The humor, pizzazz, and rock-solid emotional support in the enduring relationship between two hapless teenage mothers is portrayed pitch perfectly by Drew Barrymore and the late Brittany Murphy in this 2001 adaptation of the book of the same name by Beverly Donofrio. Steve Zahn plays Barrymore's flaky husband wonderfully (he's seen as a variant of this character in the HBO series Treme). Barrymore had to age two decades in the film, and the New York Times said that "in carrying it off she masters a tricky emotional balancing act." James Woods plays her dad and Lorraine Bracco her mom. Special features include a making of segment as well as four additional behind-the-scenes featurettes.

"Penny Marshall has fashioned a well-acted diversion, and she wisely chooses humor over treacle in what could have been an overly sentimental tale."—USA Today

"Snared by a teenage pregnancy into a marriage that eventually falls apart, Beverly reluctantly postpones her dream of a college education to bring up a resentful, if loving, son, Jason (Adam Garcia). Ms. Barrymore's tough-but-tender performance is the clearest proof yet that this 26-year-old actress, who shares the unofficial title of America's Sweetheart with Julia Roberts, has what it takes to stretch her talents into large, complex portrayals…. Instead of sugarcoating Beverly's story and turning out a weepie on the order of 'Beaches,' Ms. Marshall, aided by Morgan Upton Ward's carefully layered screenplay, has made a film that avoids many, if not all, of the predictable Hollywood clichés."—New York Times
