Watch film’s favorite underachiever get the girl in Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything.
Say Anything changes everything. Since its release, girls have wanted a guy (preferably John Cusack) to stand outside her window blaring a love song on the his boombox. Although the now iconic Lloyd Dobbler is labeled an underachiever in this film, he’s actually an amazingly cool guy: he listens to great music, wears The Clash t-shirts, practices kickboxing and, above all, he’s incredibly considerate and loving. Any lady, including illusive valedictorian Diane Court, would be so lucky to have him. But like the complications of real life, Say Anything reflects the turmoil that comes from love and family. Still, Lloyd Dobbler fights. A must see now and always.
