Dragnet meets Timothy Leary
5 January 2008 | by (Palm Bay, FL) – See all my reviews

If Jack Webb were to write/direct an "expose" of Timothy Leary and the LSD/Hippie movement, what would it look like? The 1967 film 'The Love Ins' doesn't share any of the same credited writers or directors with the 1950s and 60s TV series Dragnet.

Still, the one dimensional, stereotypical characters: hypocritical, "square" parents clashing with reckless, self-absorbed young adults, intolerant jocks, a greedy promoter and a cult leader with a messiah complex combined with the "it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt" plot line (and subplots), will have you flashing back to the classic TV series.

That said, this film does have some historic, and even artistic, value as it retells the age old tale of an idealistic movement falling prey to pride and corruption.
