14 Far Out Facts About 'Now And Then'

Diply 15 Aug 2016

I was 9 years old when Now and Then Came out and I instantly loved it! When I turned 13 that movie was my guide through life. My friends and I would bike down the street playing the soundtrack over and over on our portable CD players wanting to be as cool as those girls were. Roberta was my hero and I took Teeny's knowledge of sex and boys as sage wisdom, which likely did some long term damage. So throw on some Tony Orlando and get to know the movie you love a little bit better!

1. The screenwriter wrote this movie when she was 10! Which is probably why it rings so true

I feel pretty bad for her, nothing worse than failing in front of a bunch of teenage girls.
