The film's portrait of young love may be touching, but its most moving moments celebrate love of a different kind: the passion that movie professionals, both young and old, have for their craft.

Thanks to the heavy synthetic hand of director George Roy Hill, the potentially charming aspects of th kids' infatuation curdle into syrupy gruel.

About the only good moment in this perfectly awful film occurs when director George Roy Hill screens some clips from his celebrated movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

The film's title is too modest -- theirs is a big romance.

Absolutely delightful romance, so light of heart that it has the power to melt any cynic.

Fulcrum in script is the beneficent boulevardier, limned by Laurence Olivier in a modern refashioning of the old Maurice Chevalier role.

Charming to the max with great Olivier turn.

A Little Romance is so ponderous it seems almost mean spirited.

It gives us two movie kids in a story so unlikely I assume it was intended as a fantasy. And it gives us dialog and situations so relentlessly cute we want to squirm.

Diane Lane's talent was obvious even at age 14.

Like the rest of the film, Diane Lane is smart, pretty and charming in the most classical of senses.
| Original Score: 73/100

George Roy Hill...wasn't afraid to entertain his audience with a good story, likeable characters, and a little schmaltz.
| Original Score: 7/10

Charming tale of adolescent romance that had me mooning after Diane Lane for years.

A perfect combination of elements: engaging performances, romantic European locations, a buoyant score and a smart, observant screenplay
