Making The (Up) Grade: Say Anything...

10 December 2009 9:02 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I think even before I developed a real appreciation and affection for '80s teen comedies, I loved Say Anything.... In fact, that appreciation might have come because of Say Anything.... After all, there are few others from that time that really captured the timelessness, and moreover, the sophistication of teenage and early adult relationships, and even if some of the other films of the period chronicled them in broader or bigger ways, understanding the subtleties and nuances of a well-told story in this well-worn genre made me also understand the value of those wish-fulfillment versions.

Fox Home Entertainment released Say Anything... on Blu-ray last month, and it was at the top of my priority list if only to get a chance to watch the film for the millionth time. Unfortunately, other obligations prevented me from getting to it before now, but I know that I'm not the only person »

'Say Anything' And John Cusack: 'We've Now Reached The Completely Surreal'

11 November 2009 8:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Last week, a pack of Lloyd Dobler look-alikes descended on Times Square in New York City to celebrate the 20th anniversary (and 20th anniversary DVD release) of director Cameron Crowe's '80s classic, "Say Anything...," one of "2012" star John Cusack's early iconic roles. So last week, when MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with Cusack for the "2012" press junket -- it's out on Friday -- he brought along a little souvenir for the star to play with.

Just listen to the response, look at how he recoils at the sight of Josh's mock-boombox. For anyone who missed the reference: Cusack holds a boombox blasting Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" up over his head in one of the movie's most memorable moments. Clearly, he's spent the last 20 years having that fateful moment replayed for him in interviews. You can hardly blame the guy for shrinking back.

Cusack is a good sport though, »

Total Recall: John Cusack's Best Movies

10 November 2009 5:40 AM, PST | Rotten Tomatoes | See recent Rotten Tomatoes news »

For much of the 1980s, John Cusack was one of Hollywood's most dependable go-to guys for affable leads in teen romantic comedies -- typecasting that led to some great films (Better Off Dead, Say Anything...) as well as some rather forgettable efforts (Hot Pursuit, One Crazy Summer). But beneath that guy-next-door exterior lurked the heart of a thespian, and over the last 20 years, Cusack has assembled one of the more eclectic filmographies in the biz, starring in action flicks (Con Air), quirky dramas (Being John Malkovich), and even dabbling in horror (1408). With his starring turn in Roland Emmerich's »

'Say Anything...' Anniversary Brings Lloyd Dobler To New York City's Time Square

4 November 2009 10:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

by Holly Lunn

It was a bit chilly in New York City yesterday, but that didn’t stop a legion of Lloyd Dobler look-a-likes wearing trench coats and holding boomboxes in the air from running around Times Square. The occasion: the Cameron Crowe-directed, John Cusack-starring '80s classic "Say Anything…" is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a new Blu-ray and DVD release this week.

For those of you who are too young to know, "Say Anything..." is a movie about two kids who fall in love unexpectedly after their high school graduation. Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) is an average boy who really doesn’t really have strong ambitions. He asks the valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), one of those sheltered smart girls, out on a date.

Over the course of their summer together, he falls in love with Diane. But with Diane heading off to Europe, Lloyd is »

Boom Box-Carrying Say Anything Mob Takes New York

4 November 2009 9:53 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

A Lloyd Dobler mob — or "Mobler" — took over New York City Tuesday.

The mob, a group of young men wearing trench coats and white T-shirts, hoisted boomboxes over their heads and serenaded passersby with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."

The whole shebang, a re-creation of a scene from Cameron Crowe's film Say Anything..., was staged to celebrate ...

New on DVD: Almodóvar, "High School Musical" and shirtless dudes!

3 November 2009 2:09 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Like celebrity deaths, good things come in threes — at least they do this week on DVD.

Read on for more!

The films of gay Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar go in and out of print on DVD without any apparent rhyme or reason, so if you want to include his work in your home library, it's best to snap them up whenever you can.

This week sees three of his finest films getting new DVD releases. The Oscar-winning All About My Mother (newly remastered) still ranks as my very favorite of his movies, brilliantly mixing his gifts for outrageous comedy and tear-jerking melodrama. It's a "women's picture" in the very best sense.

Almodóvar's breakthrough in this country was the hysterical farce Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown — there's been talk for some time about turning this into a stage musical, so now's the perfect time to catch up with »
