Quotes

Milt Manville: Look, El, now I've never told you this before; but I couldn't start school until I was 8 years old because I didn't have a pair of shoes to wear. Now, lucky for me, the kid downstairs got hit by an ice-cream truck and I got his shoes. But even then they were too tight for my feet. I couldn't walk. I was put into a special class for disabled children.
Harry Berlin: Do you think that was bad? Whenever it snowed, my grandparents locked me out of the house. Skinny kid with a torn jacket, a paper bag for a hat, ...

Luv
17 August 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Disasterous film version of the Murray Schisgal Broadway hit from the word go. Too dark and moody of an approach by director Donner and an obvious distaste in the material from leads Lemmon, Falk and May, who do their best, but in the end it comes down to the fact that they are badly miscast. Luv became one of those Hollywood oddities - the picture that gets produced despite the fact that everyone agrees it is certain to bomb. It did.
