It's no "Little Fugitive"
20 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Lovers and Lollipops" has some nice little moments and some terrific photography but, overall, this film pales in comparison to that other GREAT Morris Engel/Ruth Orkin collaboration, "Little Fugitive." "L&L" is the story of Ann, a widow, and her seven year old daughter, Peggy, living alone in New York City. Enter (or re-enter) Larry, "an old friend" of Ann. This film is their courtship leading up to marriage and the strains of this relationship on little Peggy. Engel and Orkin's approach to movie-making seems to be to take such a simple storyline as this and try to get some poignant moments in the simplicty. The method worked very well in "Little Fugitive," but here the "moments" are few. Perhaps because in "L&L" we're watching, for the most part, adults we need something more complex to make them interesting. "Little Fugitive," however, was almost entirely about a boy wandering through Coney Island: as simple a scenario as can be, and the results are brilliant. One of the great moments in "L&L": little Peggy eating a handful of lollipops in the sand at the beach. If you're a student of film, or a fan of photographer Ruth Orkin's work, this will appeal to you for study's sake. But if you're just a movie fan looking for entertainment, pass this one by. Rating: 5/10.
