From Back Cover:
Ken Riddle (Craig Adams), to whom sex is a mystery, joins his two friends from work, Arthur (Russell Crowe) and Barry (Aden Young), on a trip to Kalgoorlie's infamous red light street in a fumbling attempt to collectively lose their virginity.
Puffing on Lucky Strikes lit by Zippos, driving Studebakers adorned with tailfins, all the while shaking, rattling and rolling, the characters in Love In Limbo are innocent of greed, unaware of the world's looming crisis, free of flower power and safe from sex.
LOVE IN LIMBO is a good time comedy flick about love, zits and rock 'n' roll!
I must admit that I didn't have high hopes for this one. The cinematography is lacking, the majority of the cast is unfamiliar, and well, the movie is about a bunch of teenage boys trying to lose their virginity. Not my cup of tea. But it is actually a reasonably good film and it's really weird to see Russell Crowe looking so young (though he was nearly 30 and this film came after more intense films like Romper Stomper), especially in such a prudish role.
One thing to note is that, though this movie does not have an MPAA rating, it would most definitely have been rated R. It contains quite a lot of nudity.
