Critic Reviews for Tall Story

All Critics (1)

A few witty wisecracks and a charming debut by young Jane Fonda (daughter of Henry) are not enough to atone for the silly plot and toowhimsical style of this Hollywood campus comedy.

Audience Reviews for Tall Story

A great college romantic comedy, and very much in the early 60s style. This is an hilarious movie, with great actors, and I really enjoyed it. The ending is predictable as the next romantic comedy, but it doesn't matter, this movie is fun anyway. I highly recommend it.
