      Audience Member A really, really cute 90's flick that very few people saw. This was another one that I found because of Keith Coogan! Thank you, Keith! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member "Essentially Book of Love is a tamer, less boring version of Mischief (another film you've probably never heard of) but lacks the lovely Kelly Preston. If these cookie cutter 50's comedies are your thing, check it out, otherwise continue pretending it doesn't exist, I've already forgotten about it." Full review at: http://www.commonsensemoviereviews.com/2010/03/book-of-love-1990.html Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member (First and only viewing - 8/26/2009) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A coming of age story set in the 1950's about high school love, best friends and the "what if" that happen in life. With an unknown cast (at that time)...the music of the era is the only thing that propels this comedy. Fans of 'American Graffiti' will most likely enjoy this film more for it's nostalgic look at the music and atmosphere of rebellious youth!!!!!!!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/10/10 Full Review Audience Member Not really what I expected, but it was alright.
