"'Jeremy' is the best of the teenage films about love that I have ever seen and I intend to let my daughter see it when she reaches age 11. It is a story about real love and honesty. This film may be dated but the points come accross as wholesome love. Robby and Glynnis come accross real and untouched--touched only by their love for one another. I wish I could turn back the hands of time and teenagers were still like this. I had been looking for this movie since 1973 to purchase. I loved it and will always be my favorite movie along with Forrest Gump. Can I also mention that the soundtrack is beautiful too."
Jeremy rocks...and so do I!!!!

"Well, I am 18 years old, and I was named after this awesome movie. It's such a simple, wonderful story. I actually have an original poster from the movie. On it is the wonderful quote: "A film that has nothing going for it but the people who love it," and that's exactly what it is. Those who don't enjoy Jeremy simply can't get past the fact that is very dated. If you are a Robby Benson fan, watch American Dreams on Sundays (though he doesn't play a very nice character). If you're a fan of both Robby and Glynnis O'Connor, there is a 1977 version of Thornton Wilder's Our Town where they play the leads (Emily and George). I highly recommend this. Though this version of Our Town is very hard to come by, it can be bought on Amazon at the rental market price ($75). Otherwise, some public libraries and universities sometimes will have a copy."

"This is a very interesting story about teen relationships and how when everything seem to be working out (something that is hard to come by today) circumstances outside of their control steps in to end it.
If you're a Glynnis O'Connor fan, as I am, then this movie is must have. It was her first ever staring movie role. She later teamed up with Robby Benson again for the movie Ode' To Billy Joe and the television play Our Town by Thorton Wilder (the 1977 version).
Gatekeeper reviews movies only for adult themes, sex, nudity and violence. This movie contains brief nudity (Glynnis is seen topless when taking off her bra and nipple shows through her long hair for a split second). Despite this one scene, this movie is suitable for the whole family to watch. Although it is dated, how it depicts relationships, affection, parental respect and commitments are relevant even today.
