Editorial Reviews

Love means never having to say you're sorry... Love Story. Everyone loves Love Story! One of the most romantic movies ever made also remains one of the most enduringly popular. This heartfelt 1970 tale of the love of a lifetime-the most successful Paramount movie up to that time-received seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and won one for Francis Lai's magnificent score. As filming was underway on Love Story, the filmmakers knew they had something special-so special that Erich Segal was simultaneously shaping his best-selling novel from his own screenplay. Stars Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw each received Academy Award. nominations and became overnight movie sensations for their poignant portrayals of a young couple who cross social barriers, marry and ultimately face the greatest crisis of all.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE! August 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I've seen this video countless times. More times, than any other movie. And every time I watch it, it moves me to tears. To experience a love so true and so deep is a miracle and to lose it... it's beyond me. But to even experience it and see a glimpse of it (from this movie) is a wonder enough. The love story between rich Harvard hockey-player Oliver Barrett IV (played by Ryan O'Neal) and smart-mouthed Radcliffe gal Jennifer Cavilleri (played by Ali McGraw) is one of those once-in-a-lifetime love stories... captured on film. These two star-crossed lovers who are from the opposite ends of the socio-economic ladder overcome all obstacles (disapproving parents, near poverty and Harvard Law School) to make their love work. The only thing going for them was their love and devotion to each other. And just when things were finally looking up... tragedy strikes.
The book written by Eric Segal is even more moving but to see the movie, is just as a great experience. It's not just a tearjerker! It's truly a masterpiece! I LOVE THIS MOVIE! It's my ALL TIME favorite movie.
Does anyone know if they plan to release this on DVD?

5.0 out of 5 stars Francis Lai makes hiStory with loveStory! November 4, 1999
By A Customer
I remember placing the VHS of "The Love Story" in the VCR expecting something ordinary to appear on the screen... Perhaps something that would help me sleep that night... Boy-o-Boy was I wrong! From the moment I heard those first 5 notes of the Love Story theme, a feeling was knocked into me0. This feeling, I cannot describe, but I can say this... It set the mood for the rest of the film. The book's words were so touching, the acting, so inspirational, and the music... Unforgetable.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is My Favorite Movie Of All Time January 6, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I have seen it countless times since if first came out in 1970 and was so thrilled to finally get my personal video of it this Christmas.
If you love a love story, this is the penultimate one. Oliver, the Harvard jock,and Jennifer, the poor and smart-mouthed music student from Rhode Island, touch the deepest parts of our hearts. Theirs is the love story that we all want---two people completely dedicated to each other. They survive class differences and parental disapproval because they love each other. How wonderful to see the heart-warming snowball scenes when their love is so obvious to viewers.
Of course, it is in the end, a tear-jerker that requires unlimited tissues. The couple that has it all can not overcome the one thing that is out of their hands.
You'll laugh and cry and be touched for a lifetime. This is the greatest movie. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic, gut-wrenching, brilliant? Check. February 10, 2005
By Nicole
Format:DVD
Today, romance movies and "tearjerkers" are usually too sappy, lame, hackneyed, and just not very good. But this movie, although it's now 35 years old, is a "timeless classic", and it is just as powerful today as it was in 1970 when it was released. It's a refreshingly direct and simple story about love; about two people entirely devoted to each other. Oliver (O'Neal) is a "preppie millionaire" and Jennifer (MacGraw) is "social zero". They meet at college, fall in love, and eventually marry. After overcoming social barriers, arrogant parents (Oliver's parents "cut him off" after he marries Jenny despite their protestations) and poverty during the first couple of years of their marriage, they seemingly have it all. Oliver becomes a lawyer and Jenny no longer has to work tirelessly to provide the basic necessities, and the couple can now afford to start a family. But just as they had the world at their feet, they're rocked by the news that Jenny is, in fact, dying (of cancer). Indeed, it's heart-wrenchingly sad and touching, and it's a hard person who doesn't at least tear up at the sight of Jenny dying in her loving husband's arms. The movie hits all the right emotional buttons, and you share all the love and heartache Jenny and Oliver go through. O'Neal and MacGraw are brilliant and have great chemistry, and of course the haunting (and now legendary) theme music perfectly captures the intensity and feelings between the couple. Indeed, a true love story. And the best one at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Movie Preppie August 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. If you are channel surfing and it is showing it is so easy to get sucked in no matter how many times you may have already seen it. The setting is Cambridge MA in the late 60's at Harvard University. The handsome and wealthy Oliver Barrett IV meets the brainy and beautiful but poor Jennifer "Jenny" Cavilleri at the library. Ali McGraw is so wonderful in this role as the sarcastic but endearing Jenny and Ryan O'Neal is perfect as the hockey playing jock/scion of an old New England family. This tender love story unfolds behind the ivy covered gates and the winter scenes and Francis Lai's soundtrack are exquisite. The movie takes you from undergrad, to law school, marriage and to the tearful conclusion without missing a beat. Ray Milland is brilliant as the snobby and class conscious Oliver Barrett III. A visually appealing movie that I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love means never having to say "great movie" March 16, 2004
Format:DVD
I just watched Love Story on DVD - the score of the film is so memorable and on DVD it sounds great. The sweeping romanticism of the music just makes you get into the story even more.
Ryan O'Neal's acting was really great in this and he was very handsome as well. It's hard to believe that after this movie he made so many bad ones. (including the sequel to Love Story)
Ali Macgraw is so lovable and wonderful in her role as well.
This movie is often a target for ridicule. It is often pointed to as sentimental and saccarine. This is far from the truth - their romance is full of zest and energy. He even calls her a b*tch a couple times. It is not over the top except for the most famous line "love means never.." etc - that is a little cringe worthy.
The direction is great - the locations awesome and the acting solid. No matter how many times you see this movie the end hits you like a ton of bricks. A whole box of tissues!
Great movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't have to pay if we already have PRIME!!!!! GREED!
I know it's a 5 star movie, but I DO pay for prime and it is so old, I would think it should be included in the 'unlimited-streaming' category. Very unfair.
