      One of the definitive Generation X movies, Say Anything... is equally funny and heartfelt -- and it established John Cusack as an icon for left-of-center types everywhere.

      Ram L The critic and audience reviews here make me wonder whether I know anything about movies at all. What I see is just this: A couple hook up and things move smoothly except there's a forthcoming problem, obvious from the outset; there's then a twist that leads to some drama, which is given about five minutes of screen time that sees some really poor acting; the relationship then continues, with an ending that makes it seem like urban life today is as simple as... as we all wish it were. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Johanna W Phenomenal characters in a movie that absolutely holds-up after all these years. Still a go-to when I need a reminder that sometimes the best possible outcome in life is falling in love with a good person. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Rose V My favorite romcom. Wholesome, hilarious, and real. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Sam L I gave her my heart, all she gave me was a pen. The boombox to the window iconic no need to say anymore. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/20/23 Full Review Ashley H I really found this movie very entertaining and heartwarming. It was wicked good and I loved the entire plot. I thought John Cusack did a great job playing in this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/23 Full Review Tony S The Valedictorian of a Seattle area high school accepts a date with a someone so below her in so many ways (intellectually and ambition for example). But, he's nice, and somehow they fall in love (and it's believable). In 2002, Entertainment Weekly named this film as the best modern movie romance.

      Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter Say Anything is an easy film to like. Apr 14, 2017 Full Review Bill Weber Slant Magazine Say Anything was a singularly three-dimensional teen romance after a decade of broad gags and breakfast-club stereotypes in John Hughesland. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 19, 2009 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Cusack and Skye's relationship develops nicely and believably, but Crowe has not written an entirely convincing character for the latter to play. Jul 17, 2007 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Aging better than any of its high school rom-com classmates...a true classic of the genre. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 23, 2023 Full Review Joe Lipsett Hazel & Katniss & Harry & Starr Podcast A surprisingly mature teen film about negotiating the transition from teen to adulthood, anchored by a seminal John Cusack performance whose Lloyd Dobler has rightfully become an icon of the genre. Apr 11, 2023 Full Review Erik Childress The Friendship Dilemma Podcast Cameron Crowe’s film helped graduate the ‘80s teen romance into a new level and decades later these are still characters and relationships that carry meaning for all of us and our own insecurities about love and economics.
