Set in the 1950s, Inventing the Abbotts is a dramatic look at the life of two boys from the wrong side of the tracks and their interaction with the three daughters of local aristocrat Lloyd Abbott. The boys, Jacey and Doug Holt, have only three things in common: their family, table tennis and chasing the beautiful Abbott sisters. Their father, a reckless risk-taker, lost his life through a wager with Lloyd Abbott, his then business partner.Written by
(at around 5 mins) Jaycee and Alice are making out/having sex in the car (a convertible) since Jaycee's mother had told him he couldn't bring her to the house anymore. Immediately after, Jaycee is shown bringing her home in a car which isn't a convertible. See more »
The end of my innocence and childhood began in 1957. It is remarkable to me now just how little I knew then about the people around me. It took me years to figure out exactly what the truth was, especially given my brother's knack at inventing facts. My mother once told me that if the Abbotts didn't exist, my brother would have had to invent them.

Jennifer Connelly... Finally!
I rented this movie because it was in the $1 for two nights section at Family Video and I needed something to do with my time over a holiday weekend.
Jennifer Connelly's two "Hi Doug" scenes were worth more than $1 to me. Jennifer Connelly has always played an attractive girl, but this time they let her play a sexy girl. Although she is nearly 30 years old she does a great job.
The guy who plays the super stud in this movie has a great future.
And of course Liv Tyler was great in the the role that she played.
I give Jennifer Connelly a 10, the story an 8, but the boring narrator brought the movie down to a 7/10.
