Audience Reviews for Tall Story


Basketball romance between two unlikely people. Jane Fonda the cheerleader, Anthony Perkins the jock.

A great college romantic comedy, and very much in the early 60s style. This is an hilarious movie, with great actors, and I really enjoyed it. The ending is predictable as the next romantic comedy, but it doesn't matter, this movie is fun anyway. I highly recommend it.
