Grosse Pointe Blank

Ok I rewatched Grosse Pointe Blank! Great movie with lots of memorable lines. The thought did occur to me that John Cusack is perfect for this role. You could imagine some of the characters he played in the teen movies like Better off Dead and Say Anything growing up to be Martin Blank. I've never gone to a reunion. I have my 15th coming up this year. I've never felt the desire too, for some of the same reasons Martin doesn't (not the hired killer part, the I don't have anything in common anymore with these people part. I did fully enjoy this movie and watching his experience with coming home though.

Memorable quote: "They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"

Has anyone else seen this movie or Clueless or Heathers yet? Post your thoughts!

I'm pathetic at the moment. I just got around to watching the Magnificent 7 on my Ipod!

If we emailed you about the swap, do we still need to email Kathie? This will be my first swap, so I want to make sure I'm signed up:)

Grosse Pointe Blank was a good movie. I agree with you about having moved on and not having anything in common with your old high school classmates. I too have never gone to any of my class reunions. BTW, I graduated high school in 1986 and I liked hearing all the old 80s music.

I've seen all three, and I have to say Grosse Pointe Blank is the worst of those. I love John Cusack and have seen most of his movies, but I liked Grosse Pointe Blank the worst of all of his. And Better Off Dead is in my top 5 of all time!
