say anything

there's no food in your food...


lloyd (john cusack) is a genuinely nice guy, but a solid underachiever with it. despite his lack of career aspirations and drive for academic achievement, there's one thing that lloyd is sure of; he wants to ask diane (ione skye) out on a date before she heads off to college, after graduating from high school as she has done; an exceptionally high achiever. lloyd isn't deterred by this and, worried that she is missing out on her life because she's too busy focussing on the future, diane agrees to a date. it isn't long before she finds herself falling for lloyd; surely it can't be this simple?

of course, it isn't and, as we all know, there's a peter gabriel track and john cusack holding a stereo above his head...

it had been a very, very long time since i watched 'say anything'; i'm pretty sure it was a new release at the time and i'm pretty sure i enjoyed it. although, i did never watch it again and i'd forgotten the whole thing. so, i decided to give it a watch, as it wasn't what i expected to find on the 'classics' menu of finnair's in-flight entertainment. any how, it was a thoroughly enjoyable watch and, apart from a couple of moments, it had dated remarkably well and was full of late eighties charm.

good stuff.

the dvd is £3.49 from play.com
