    The film doesn't seem to have much of a focus. But it doesn't seem to want one, either.

    Full of...goofy ironies, and while it ain't Molière, it is a pretty great entry in the teen-comedy genre. [Blu-ray]

    Unfortunately, only about half of the many jokes and gags in the film are actually funny.

    perhaps the greatest movie of all time

    Hilarious and brilliantly deadpan.

    I've rarely met anyone who didn't secretly love it passionately.

    Forget Citizen Kane. As a matter of history, this seminal film is unquestionably the finest work of cinema ever made. Required viewing for all students and fans of the art form.

    strives to be offbeat and sometimes works itself into a sweat doing so. The humor often hits the bullseye, however...

    Classic '80s Cusack vehicle.

    Better Off Dead's charm stems from its imagination and attitude.

    John Cusack launched his career as a lovable loser at love with this teen comedy about a guy who gets dumped when his girlfriend decides to trade up.

    John Cusack can even turn a no-brainer into worthwhile entertainment
