Dated but fun
5 June 2001 | by (westerham, kent, UK) – See all my reviews

The Lovers! is not a great film, or even a particularly good film. It will never win awards. It is typical of the low cost British TV-based movies of the 1970s. It is really nothing more than an expended TV special. But for some reason, I have retained a copy and, every so often (when I need cheering up usually) I play this film. It has a certain innocence. Nostalgia for a age that has past. Both the leading actors are excellent and there is a host of good supporting actors. The script is hardly hilarious but there are times when the one liners bring a smile. All in all, it is a pleasant way to spend 90 odd minutes.
