Oldies but goldies: Say Anything (1989)

Director: Cameron Crowe, Main Cast: John CusackIone SkyeJohn MahoneyLili Taylor;

say-anything

This is a classic romcom, quoted throughout the years in movies and tv-shows, but it is also a honest look on first love and teenagers. Cameron Crowe’s first effort as director/writer  is sweet, compelling and accurate. John Cusack is perfect as Lloyd and there are memorable scenes: anything involving Lili Taylor, Gas ‘n’ Sip guys and, of course, Lloyd holding the boombox playing “In your eyes”.  Heartwarming–7.5/10

Sometimes is nice to go back and re-watch the classics and this is a great example of a quality chick-flick: girl meets boy from a different world, they dance and they fall in love. The world conspires to keep them apart but they fight to be together. Happy ending, great soundtrack and dance numbers, what more do you want?– 8/10
