"Love means never having to say you're sorry."
Ridiculously popular movie from 1970 in which a rich, annoying preppie meets a poor, annoying music major at Harvard. The most colorless actor of the 70s, Ryan O'Neal, and Ali MacGraw are the irritating couples. Oh, and she dies. Ray Milland is still elegant, if a bit dissipated, as O'Neal's patrician father. MacGraw's father is played by the guy who ended up with a horse in his bed in "The Godfather." While New Hollywood was thriving, Old Hollywood was still churning out schmaltz like this. Followed by a sequel.

Some things improve with age. This movie didn't.

🥰 I hope there's a remake of this, so I can hate that too. Contrary to a previous comment, it's a definite PG rating.

I'd never seen it before and I liked it a lot. The two lovers had chemistry and the woman's dialog was pretty snappy. I thought there'd be a lot of cheese in it but I saw none of that. A great movie that deserves to be a classic romance.

I almost turned it off after 10 minutes because the girl was so sarcastically annoying. It turned out to be OK once she stopped being a snobbish little B.

When I watched this movie for the first time, back in ‘80, I remember lots of tears and talks about it. Rewatching it, didn’t bring the same emotions at all and it is not that good as I have remembered after all. Movie feels rushed and without depth and book feels like a movie script.
I guess different perspective on life now, isn’t it?

Not as good as The Notebook or any other Nicholas Sparks adaptation but it does come closer. Ryan O'Neill did an OK performance unlike his character in Paper Moon with his daughter,Tatum O'Neill.

The classic 1970 romance that was schmaltzy then and has not improved with age. The usual poor 70s production values.

"Love means never having to say you're sorry!"

This line, as uttered by a gorgeous Ali MacGraw, became the catch phrase of 1970. And I believed her, or wanted to. Hey, I was 12 at the time--what did I know? On the other hand, what on earth was I doing in a theater showing an R-rated movie?

Not believable and way too much unnecessary swearings!
