Better Off Cusack

Though this is a dangerous discussion to wade into when I am trying to get some real work done today, I have to come to the unsolicited aid of JPod. The Sure Thing is brilliant comedy, and one of the more quotable movies of my generation. (“Repre-essed!”). But I’d go one further and stick up for all of the John Cusack movies of that era–Better off Dead, for instance, is a very low budget high comedy. Cusack is one of the more underrated comic actors out there. More recently, his take on an assassin with questions about his career choice in Gross Pointe Blank was terrific stuff.
