February 12, 2014
Is Brooke Shields truly obsession worthy? And can she carry, commercially, another movie about another kind of obsession? The answer is no.
February 12, 2014
Trite Blue Lagoonish dialogue trivializes this film adaptation of Scott Spencer's first-rate 1979 novel of obsession but does not spoil it on the level of pop romance.
February 12, 2014
Vaguely interesting for causing controversy at the time, this tacky tale of illicit teenage romance hasn't aged particularly well.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 28, 2012
A bad but commercially popular romantic melodrama, due to Brooke Shields' celeb status at the time and the the Oscar-nominated tune by Lionel Richie.

August 17, 2007
A potentially interesting story of obsessive teenage love is sabotaged by some laughably absurd overplotting.

July 26, 2007
A Cotton-candy rendition of Scott Spencer's powerful novel, Endless Love is a manipulative tale of a doomed romance which careens repeatedly between the credible and the ridiculous.
July 26, 2007
A notorious disaster.

January 26, 2006
As excruciating as the Diana Ross/Lionel Richie title tune.
August 14, 2005
Love twaddle, perfect for teens.
| Original Score: 3/5
October 23, 2004
The movie as a whole does not understand the particular strengths of the novel that inspired it, does not convince us it understands adolescent love, does not seem to know its characters very well, and is a narrative and logical mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 30, 2004
Anyone unfamiliar with the story of Scott Spencer's novel is bound to be mystified by Franco Zeffirelli's latest film, which reduces Endless Love to a whimperingly latter-day Romeo and Juliet with a little pyromania thrown in.
January 31, 2004
Endless Love explores romantic yearning in all of its intensity.
May 24, 2003
In a word: yuck.
