Love Story

2

The sappy '70s romance

Resurrecting melodramatic weepies at the dawn of the ’70s, Love Story’s “verbal volleyball” (courtesy of doomed lovers Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal) looks thoroughly dated in an age of bromances and Bridesmaids.

Kisses in the rain, snowball fights, the immortal “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” – all so exhaustively parodied that Arthur Hiller’s film almost plays like a really twisted comedy.

Even Francis Lai’s iconic, Oscar-snatching score grates – by the end credits, you’ll be shedding tears for all the wrong reasons.
