It's an odd B-movie with homo-erotic suggestions.

Audience Reviews for The Girl in Lovers Lane

Plenty of amusing homosexual undertones in the first half an hour, weary melodrama throughout, and yet a suprisingly moving finale... It's hard to know what to make of The Girl in Lovers Lane.

It has some decent characters and scenes, but offers very little interest and can be quite boring at times, but it's worth to check out on MST3K.

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.
