Critic Reviews for April Love

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Pat Boone plays a "bad" boy sent to a farm for rehab in this pleasant but wholesome musical, in which the title song was Oscar nominated and very popular at the time.

A harmless piffle in which Pat Boone plays the least likely juvenile delinquent in film history.

Audience Reviews for April Love


Cream cheese musical with Pat Boone doing his Elvis lite routine. Innocuous film has a few nice songs, good production values and old pros Nolan and O'Connell in support plus an appealing Shirley Jones singing beautifully. Boone however is just to lightweight to carry a movie and so the picture has a vacuum at it's center.
