Storyline

A friend delivers John Twiller greetings from a long gone high school girlfriend. This makes him open his school's yearbook - his "Book of Love" - and remember the old times, way back in 1956, when he was in his last year of high school and his family just moved to the town. He hung out with geeky Paul Kayne and tried to get the attention of Lily, who unfortunately was together with bully Angelo. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A hidden surprise
3 December 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this 50's based coming of age comedy about love. I don't know about you, but I didn't see this at the cinema. I guess like everybody else, I saw it when it came on pay per view. Looks like a right to video winner. A fresh, young, and highly entertaining cast. The story has a little bit of "Porky's" style, but, who cares? That's what makes it an enjoyable movie.
