John Cusack stars in this critically acclaimed romantic comedy as Lloyd, an optimistic underachiever, who falls for Diane, a beautiful valedictorian (Ione Skye). The great news is that Diane feels the same way about Lloyd. The bad news is that her possessive, grumpy dad (John Mahoney) disapproves. It may take more than the power of love for these two unlikely sweethearts to make it as a couple!

Critics Consensus: 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.

The film is all charming performances and grace notes, but there are plenty of worse things to be.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 1980s classic Say Anything survives as an excellent, coming-of-age movie for teens. Teens-to-be also may enjoy it, but it may not be suitable for them, with its teen drinking, teen sex, profanity (including one "f--k"), and parental betrayal. More than simply a teen film, it boasts fine performances, a lot of humor, and a well-chosen soundtrack. This is a true-to-life depiction of teen life. Both main characters deal with the pain of broken families and oppressive family expectations, which could spark discussion.
