In "Love Story," a rich guy, Oliver (Ryan O'Neal), and a poor girl, Jennifer (Ali MacGraw), fall in love while both are attending Harvard University. When you see the two characters, it's hard to see how a smart talking music girl and a rich hockey player could possibly be right for each other, but they'll show you how it can be done. But it won't be an easy road to travel because they both have their separate problems/situations to deal with, such as Oliver's dad not being too fond of people unless they're very successful and rich.
I watched "Love Story" because my dad said it was his favorite movie of all time and that it's the only movie he's ever went to the theatre to watch twice, so I thought that it really had to be a good movie. I did like "Love Story," even though I wouldn't call it one of my favorite movies of all time....I'm more the action, sci-fi, comedy, and horror movie type.
"Love Story" is good because it seems realistic, just like two normal people who are real different from each other might act in a real life relationship. Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw brought their acting skills and used them in this love story of a movie. If you like love stories, I recommend purchasing "Love Story."
