Being as this is the first of the four films that I saw, for a while it could be counted as my single most favourite film. It is also the only one of this quartet that I have not seen in the cinema and do not own the soundtrack to. Needless to say, however, I have it on video. Below is a short piece describing L.A. Story for the benefit of readers who haven't seen the film. For those of you who have, or if you don't care if the plot is revealed to you, I also offer you a concise critique.

L.A. STORY USA, 91 minutes approx, Colour, English language, BBFC rated 15.

"Steve Martin is Harris Telemacher, a wacky television weatherman, who thinks his life is perfect, except for an erratic relationship with a style-conscious girlfriend (Marilu Henner). Then, one bright and smoggy L.A. day, an electronic freeway sign changes his life, when its advice leads him into a frivolous romance with a young and beautiful blonde (Sarah Jessica Parker) and, ultimately, to true love with the woman of his dreams (Victoria Tennant). Set against the magic of Los Angeles, it's the most hilariously romantic L.A. STORY you'll ever experience."
