Audience Reviews for The Girl in Lovers Lane
This movie has a familiar story, but it's not all bad, so I gave it three stars. Corman directs, but I'm not familiar with the cast.More
I technically watched this ala Mystery Science Theatre 3000, but those apparently don't show up in Flixster. As for my first MST3K experience, it was kinda meh. Too many bite-sized giggles that I was quickly laughed-out, and the skits in between are a bit uninspired.
As for The Girl in Lovers Lane...the story is melodramatic in a way that I can forgive, solely because it's an "old" B&W movie, but the execution is indeed laughable. The two lead males try so hard to be strong silent types, but they just end up causing unintentional homoerotic undertones.
