Movie Info

High school girl Angela (Lizzy Caplan) returns from summer vacation with a dilemma: Should she or should she not surrender her virginity to her boyfriend, Travis (Bret Harrison)? Upon her return, Angela discovers that her high school has just instituted a trendy new sexual-education program -- consisting solely of "Just Say No." Despite increasing pressure from friends and faculty alike, Angela refuses to sign a circulating abstinence pledge, citing the undeniable fact that most of supporters of "Just Say No" have no idea what they're talking about. Her stance is contrasted with that of her hypocritical, apple-polishing classmate, Caroline (Brooke D'Orsay), who zealously goes along with the new program (and strong-arms others into doing so) only to curry favor with her teachers. As the story rolls on, it is clear that the "Just Say No" credo is a farce -- to everyone except, perhaps, the one person who openly treated it as a farce in the first place. Made for the VH1 cable service, Everybody's Doing It premiered December 22, 2002.

Less a movie and more a heavy-handed diatribe...

Audience Reviews for Everybody's Doing It

½

Everyone knows MTV is shit, but this early tv-movie focusing on the abysmal Federal-funded "abstinence only" programs of a few years ago manages to be funny, informative and smart. It even manages to represent both of the (logical) sides of the argument; we totally should encourage abstinence in our schools' health programs, but we also need to teach them everything else. Makes sense and makes for a fun after-school special. Hunt it down (IMDb/Hulu) if you're a Lizzy Caplan fan.

It's presented in an oversimplified manner but the message to fight the herd instinct is a good one.

This is a pretty good movie. About kids in school on the verge of having sex for the first time, and how the school tries to deal with sex education. We get to see all this through the eyes of Angela who refuses to be herded as are most of her schoolmates. It was also funny to realize after a few scenes that they used the name of a local school of ours, and I've seen the face of the school portrayed in the outdoor scenes (but it is not Grant Park High School).
