Teenage Triangle
31 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This film goes under the category of drive-in drivel, the stuff that went on the screen and possibly inspired teens to get down to business.

Date Bait is the story of a love triangle between Marlo Ryan and new boyfriend Gary Clarke and old boyfriend Dick Gering. Gering went away to a rehab for his heroin addiction and while he was gone Ryan started to date Gary Clarke. Ryan who's a light version of Sandra Dee doesn't see much of a future with a drug addict. However her clueless father for reasons I can't explain just dislikes Clarke.

It might be a simple matter if Gering would just leave, but he won't and he's the younger brother of the local gangster and Clarke and anyone who stands up for him gets a going over.

This independent production boasts nothing really good about it. The direction is totally lacking, the cast is awful and the sets are bad. Even the rock and roll music is second rate.

The theme should have been Dion's Teenager In Love or more like teenagers in heat.
