Movie Info

Uptight college freshman Jerry Payne (Wendell Burton) finds a carefree friend in zany Pookie (Liza Minnelli). After an awkward meeting on the bus, where they are headed to different colleges, Pookie quickly works her way into Jerry's life. She makes an unannounced visit to Jerry's campus, and before long annoyance turns to affection, and friendship turns to romance. But with Pookie's increasingly neurotic behavior, how long can this love affair last?

Audience Reviews for The Sterile Cuckoo

  • Apr 11, 2014
    Dated and forgettable early Liza Minnelli piece. These themes have been revisited countless times and in a much better way.

    Quiet drama with Liza very impressive in an early role before she ossified into a sequined showboat. The view of college life is dated but the emotions are as real today as they were in the late 60's.
