Zero Stars (out of 4)
In writer-director Harry Baweja’s vision of the future, people wear parachute pants, dance the Moonwalk, and play with Teddy Ruxpin dolls. The future as portrayed in Love Story 2050 looks a lot like America in the 1980s, only with hovercars. The characters don’t even travel to 2050 until halfway through the film, after an interminable present-day setup in which an obnoxious lout woos a young woman too bewitched by his luxurious hair to notice that he’s an idiot.
No Rating (violence, language); 179 minutes
