Overview

Get ready for another dose of love and loss in this sequel to the four-handkerchief classic Love Story (1970). Oliver Barrett (Ryan O'Neal) is emotionally devastated after the death of his wife Jenny, and while he tries to lose himself in his work as a lawyer, the long hours don't ease his pain, especially when he finds that his leftist views conflict with those of the senior partners at the firm. Eventually, Oliver's inconsolable grief begins to alienate those around him, until he finds new love with Marcie Bonwit (Candice Bergen), the wealthy and beautiful heir to the Bonwit-Teller fortune. Despite his affection for Marcie, Oliver finds it difficult to leave the memory of Jenny behind, which causes major problems in his relationship with Marcie. Ray Milland reprises his role from the first film as Oliver's father; the supporting cast includes Charles M. Haid, Swoosie Kurtz, and Jose Torres.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Love Story may not have been a great film, but it knew how to make audiences care about what was ultimately just another sappy romance; the entirely unnecessary sequel, Oliver's Story, on the other hand, is a pointless film that will only alienate those who were devotees of the original. Clearly, Oliver was made not because the original story demanded a follow-up to make the sags complete but simply because somebody hoped to make another barrel of money. This mercenary spirit not only shows; it infuses the entire film. Oliver may start out as a lawyer with a concern for correcting social problems, but by the end of the film he has joined the ranks of lawyers who are more concerned with making a pile. The character's intense despair over his dead wife would be understandable and moving in real life, but it's presented here as a plot point and feel forced; the viewer gets tired and feels he's doing nothing but moping and whining. The supposed new love he hopes to find with Candice Bergen's character is shallow and not especially believable. Worse, it's all dreadfully boring. After the first ten minutes, one is ready to give up, but keeps watching in the hope that things will get better -- or at least livelier. They don't. Ryan O'Neal is only a shadow of his former Love Story self performance-wise; Bergen tries hard, but is ultimately not very effective.

    disappointing

    I was so excited to find out there was a sequel to the movie love story, until i saw it.This movie lacked something although i dont know what it is most definitely lacking something.Ryan O'Neal came back as Oliver Barrett IV you feel his pain and sorrow and you feel somewhat betrayed as he falls in love with another woman.You try to see bits and pieces of jenny in her but you just cant and well its a bad movie altogether and should have never been made.Maybe its the theme song thats missing!na find out for yourself.
