If you ask me to name one of my ten top movies of all time, this movie is the first one that comes to mind. I just absolutely love it! Who wouldn't? The film is so full of memorable scenes that you just cant forget. Of course there's the famous scene where Lloyd holds up the boom box playing Peter Gabriel's "In your Eyes" just outside Diane's window. There are also lots of other moments too. One of my favorites is the one in the diner where Diane tells Lloyd that she just wants to be friends. Lloyd replies that they can just be friends - friends with potential. I can't forget that line, it was so witty, you just got to fall in love with Lloyd Dobler!
That's what's great about this film. It has one of the best written characters that I've seen - wonderfully portrayed by John Cusack. Lloyd Dobler is this ordinary young guy, who doesn't think much of his future, but knows what he wants in life - to be with Diane Court. He manages to do that in the course of the film and does it quite well. His sincere affection for Diane is the one that makes her fall in love with him and as well as make you fall in love with him as well.
This movie has a lot of quotable quotes which is too many to mention ( you might want to click on the additional information for the DVD on this page as some quotes get mentioned here). If you are a true fan, you'll definitely want to own the DVD copy. Aside from deleted scenes, the DVD also includes a commentary by John Cusack, Ione Skye and Cameron Crowe with lots of trivia!
One of the best films ever. Thank you Cameron Crowe, for making this one!
A personal fav. Cameron Crowe's best movie, his most human and well-made film. Great screenplay, not perfect, but really driven by real and multi-dimensional lead characters. Cusack is awesome. John Mahoney is able to overcame the flaws in his character to deliver a masterful performance. And the message about love totally rocks! Nothing better than the scene of Cusack holding up the boombox or the breakup scene where he slows down in his Malibu and then parks the car, takes the key out, and says "Wait, what did we just decide?" to offer real slices of life. "I'm looking for a dare to be great situation" has got to be one of the all time best movie lines. No "English tips" here, just a great movie!
This is a blast from the past - the 80s that is, and it's one of the reasons I fell in love with John Cusack. I own most of Cameron Crowe's movies, so having this one was a must. Lloyd Dobler (Cusack) is a nice guy who just graduated high school and decides to ask out the "brain" of their class. Ione Skye plays the "brain" with beauty. She gives him a chance, completely unaware of his charm and ability to make her fall in love with him. It's a non-conforming love story with an awesome soundtrack. Cusack's famous scene of him standing outside Skye's window, playing "In Your Eyes" from his boom box gave all guys ideas for love.
Cameron Crowe's Say Anything is the quintessential teen romance movie of the 80's. If you're looking to purchase a copy the Special Edition DVD is the way to go. It's filled with special features including 10 deleted scenes, 13 extended scenes & 5 alternate scenes. It also includes a featurette, theatrical trailers, TV spots as well as commentary but Cameron Crowe, John Cusack & Ione Sky. I highly recommend everyone pick up a copy of this DVD as you won't be disappointed!
I have always loved this movie! I saw it with my husband when it first came out... what an amazing "study" of teenage life - from love to peer pressure, to acceptance, to forgiveness, to making the best of any situation! This is a great movie for anyone looking for a great love story that includes a little heart break too! A great first for Cameron (Writer/Director)... a true must see!
I was so happy to find it on - where else? eBay! AND, for a terrific price too! This isn't the easiest flick to find on store shelves... so happy to FINALLY have it in my collection!
