      Lola

      PG 1969 1 hr. 28 min. Romance Comedy List
      Reviews 9% 100+ Ratings Audience Score In swinging 1960s London, 16-year-old high school student Lola (Susan George) does more than simply read the erotic literature penned by 39-year-old American Scott Wardman (Charles Bronson). She tracks down the author and playfully seduces him, to the great consternation of her parents (Paul Ford, Kay Medford) once they learn of the relationship. The unlikely lovebirds eventually get married and wend their way to New York City, but their relationship grows increasingly tenuous. Read More Read Less

      Audience Member A thirty eight year old novelist and a sixteen year old girl decide to get married and more to America. A strange drama that deals with an unusual and borderline tasteless subject without feeling exploitational. However, it is also dull and quite simply hard to care for. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Super awkward and uncomfortable throughout except for the scene of the two magistrates leveling the same punishment for two vastly different crimes. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The worst movie ever made, ever. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member You gotta love Charles Bronson and who couldn't adore Susan George? This is a pretty pedestrian film but the staging is lovely and it's worth checking out just to admire Lola's wardrobe. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Want a laugh? Check out this gloriously ridiculous sex romp, which would almost be offensive if it weren't so thoroughly bizarre. Bronson is an alleged 38 year old novelist (at the time, he was actually 48 but looks 68) who inexplicably hooks up with a 16 year old English schoolgirl! (Inexplicable, as Bronson spends the entire movie doing his best impression of an Easter Island statue.) Riddled with logical errors, hilariously bad melodrama and a raft of remarkably clumsy wannabe French New Wave/Richard Lester zooms and jump cuts. Second-time feature director Donner shows no sign of the man who would eventually helm such hits as THE OMEN, SUPERMAN, and the LETHAL WEAPON series. Godawful. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member So very bad. So very random. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roger Moore Movie Nation Cringeworthy or not, attempted "Swinging Sixties" satire, different era and all that or not, this is a very badly-written and acted movie. Rated: 1/4 Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
