John Cusack and Cameron Crowe, who could ask for more?,
This review is from: Say Anything  [DVD] (DVD)
Being a huge fan of both cameron crowe, and the legend that is John Cusack, I quite simply had to watch this movie, and it exceeded all expectations. This films story isnt particuarly original, its kinda pretty similar to every other story of this kind, where the girl has to make a big decision in life, stay with the guy she's in love with, or move away and study. The difference is, the screenplay for this movie is so well written and so well executed, that its almost as if, the screenplay was made for John Cusack, he reads the script like poetry.
The on screen chemistry is certainly present throughout the whole movie, and the entire cast perform brilliantly, especially pleased with John Mahoney's performance as Diane's dad. Its never slow at any point in the movie, and made me laugh many times, with plenty of "feel good" moments. This isnt your run of the mill "chick flick" this a wonderfully written, intelligent feel good movie, and I have, and will continue to reccomend this film to everyone and anyone.
