Not that bad..., 8 August 2010
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

I saw that the other review compared this film to "Reefer Madness". Well, although both of these films are exploitation fare, I just can't see lumping them together. "Reefer" is a grade-z film--rotten and silly from start to finish---and you just can't say that about "Too Soon To Love". Yes, "Too Soon" is not a great film...but it isn't THAT bad.

The film is about two high school students, Cathy and Jim. Like in most exploitation films, instead of looking like teens, they are clearly older--21 and 25 respectively. I don't know why they just didn't get a couple real 17 year-olds to play these parts. The two fall in love and get frisky--though the sex aspect of the film is just implied--after all, it's 1960. Like many sex exploitation films, the girl ends up pregnant (but without an STD--like she would in many of the more salacious films of this ilk) and the pair don't know what to do next. Exactly what they do next is pretty interesting--just tune in to see more.

The story is a tad overdone at points and some of the acting isn't great, but overall the film is much better than I'd expected. The acting of Richard Evans (Jim) is particularly good and the film does hit on a few good issues--and only hits you over the head like a meat-ax on occasion. While this film is easy to skip, it sure isn't one the average person would love, but is more for fans of the genre.
