Goofs

Oliver drives to his father's retirement party. It is clearly winter since there are no leaves on the trees. He stays overnight at his father's house. The next morning the scene in the kitchen shows that it is now spring or summer, since there are now leaves on the trees (not evergreens) outside the windows. See more »

Effective Late 70's Drama/Romance With Handsome Leads.
14 January 2015 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

Very good little film, picked it a VHS copy at nearby thrift store for a dollar or less. I had never seen LOVE STORY so I can't compared it to that, rather I'm reviewing this as a stand alone film. The relationship between Ryan O'Neal and Candice Bergen was realistic and loaded with clever dialogue. They way they meet and court was unique as well. This film was made while Ryan was still at his youthful peak and he is fun to watch. There is even a shower scene where you can see him nude from the backside which is a hoot. All in all, not an unpleasant way to spend an hour and a half or so. Another film to add to the excellent reservoir of 70's cinema.
