Boring, shambolic garbage
24 May 2016 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

"Lovelines" is another so-called raunchy teen "comedy". It seems to have a bigger budget than most, but this is wasted on interminable musical numbers (the movie is set around a battle of the bands) and a pointless car chase scene where some of the footage is obviously sped up.

There are only two sort of memorable aspects of it: Michael Winslow, the guy who did the sound effects from the Police Academy Movies (and the only actor who was in every movie!), makes an unexplained appearance as the operator of a telephone service, and a scene right at the beginning which supplies the movie's only real nudity involving a synchronised swimming team whose suits have been sabotaged. As usual in these things, the only nudity comes from extras who have obviously been paid just for that; they have no speaking role and disappear from the movie after the blink-and-you'll-miss-it flash.

The scenes with Winslow seem completely foreign to the rest of the movie. The Wikipedia article tells me that he runs a telephone service called "Lovelines" involved in keeping the movie's lovebirds together. The movie itself doesn't contain this information, but then, I didn't even know it was a love story. I couldn't tell you the names of the characters involved, or remember a single scene with them.

In short, I guess you have to conclude that "Lovelines" fails at everything it attempts. At least I came away thinking that Michael Winslow is talented.
