Senseless sequels aren't always limited to cheesy action flicks and comic book adaptations.

Audience Reviews for Oliver's Story

A lack luster sequel to Love Story. This story is boring, and not worth telling if you ask me. I suggest just watching Love Story and forgetting about this stupid sequel.

Unfairly disregarded as an unnecessary follow up to the huge hit "Love Story", this film tholugh slow at times, really let's you inside the mind of someone who loses a loved one. Nothing in life is simple and the way this film plays out is very true to life. Ryan O'Neal really plays it well here. I really enjoyed this one.
