Storyline

Sue and Larry kiss passionately on her front porch one night; he asks her to marry him. The next day, they meet at the soda shop: she's glum, her parents refuse permission. Larry wants to elope; after all, they've been dating for three months, she's about to graduate from high school, and he has only two years left of college. They decide to visit Mr. Hall, the marriage counselor at a local church, to ask him to convince her parents. He walks them through Cupid's checklist: are your backgrounds similar, are you friends, do you understand marriage? Larry and Sue spend the summer living the checklist. Will they decide they are ready? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

"Boing:
17 October 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

love Coronet guidance films. They're the furthest away from any psychological truth and behavior. Take, for example "Are You Ready For Marriage?" A hilariously overdrawn yarn about 2 kids who want to tie the knot, and go to their Church's family counselor for guidance. The counselor shows them this device, something about psychological distance, that I still can't understand after watching it twice. The counselor then starts explaining how attraction starts, by using this word. "Boing". No explanation on what it means, but I think we all KNOW what it means... Soon, he says that the relationship grows thin, just like the elastic.. "And soon.." He let's go of the elastic. The two kids yell "It's Gone!" "Where did it Go?" Just like their relationship, lol. The acting in this never rises above sub-standard. with special note going to the female actress who plays the part as BORINGLY as possible.
