Trying to impress the girl next door
2 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The fashions may change, but a Disney teen comedy/drama never does. For The Love Of Willadean stars Michael McGreevey and Roger Mobley as a pair of pubescent teens just discovering the female sex. In this case it's Terry Burnham living next door to where Mobley and his family have just moved in from the great metropolis of Detroit. Down the street is McGreevey and his little brother Billy Mumy.

Adolescent boys will do all kinds of strange things to impress their female peers and Mobley and McGreevey are no exception. Burnham's father is a most cranky John Anderson whose pride and joy maybe before his daughter is his watermelon patch with the biggest watermelon in the region with lots of seeds for a new crop.

I don't think I have to draw you a picture. The kids act like kids do, especially when on a Disney show. But they do it with a sweet innocence that is lost in these times.

It's still an enjoyable Disney product.
