Say Anything….

Today I introduced Allison to the defining movie of my teenage life. Say Anything. This movie came out in my freshman year of high school and made a profound impact on me. Lloyd Dobler became for me the epitome of how to be a good boyfriend. I wanted to be just like Lloyd. I must have seen that movie about 25 times. Now Allison has never seen this movie. Until today. And she liked it very much. We got the special edition DVD. Today I learned many things about the movie. One, it holds up, it is a fantastic movie and is still one for many great lines. “I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.” The movie was the directorial debut of Cameron Crowe, the man who has given us such great movies as Singles, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous, and Elizabethtown. There was a great featurette on the film and I got to relive 1989 and watch all the TV spots that made me excited to see this movie. If you haven’t seen this movie ever, you must see it and if you’ve seen it before share it with your friends. I think it was one of John Cusack’s best roles.
