Synopsis:
Harvard Law student Oliver Barrett IV (Ryan O'Neal) and music student Jennifer Cavilleri (Ali MacGraw) share a chemistry they cannot deny - and a love they cannot ignore. Despite their opposite backgrounds, the young couple put their hearts on the line for each other. When they marry, Oliver's wealthy father threatens to disown him. Jenny tries to reconcile the Barrett men, but to no avail. Oliver and Jenny continue to build their life together. Relying only on each other, they believe love can fix anything. But fate has other plans. Soon, what began as a brutally honest friendship becomes the love story of their lives.

Over-rated Classic - Love Story review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
03/11/2006

The story line is very simple, just as shown in the film description. Oliver demonstrates a particular talent for alienating and upsetting others. The acting and filming are only average, and the conversation quite "American", and sometimes rather corny, if you think about it. Does love really mean 'never having to say sorry'? Despite sentimental and emotional scenes, I was not sufficiently moved to shed a single tear (although I am quite soppy)!

If you do watch it, there are some interesting aspects, particularly the few scenes of the couple's interaction with their parents. Jenny's Dad Phil is a Catholic, and there is an interesting inter-play with the couple who say they don't believe in God, and heaven is what we experience here. This makes Jenny's death more depressing, having no future hope. It is also interesting to see the enormous changes since 1970 including social expectations, marriage and family relationships.
