A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it and I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, pretty much like 'High Fidelity', even though I liked it, I can't say I was blown away. I mean, you have a pretty cool cast (John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Alan Arkin, Dan Aykroyd, Joan Cusack, Hank Azaria, Jeremy Piven) and they all delivered some decent performances... read more

I've loved this movie since the first time I saw it in theathers and it's the movie that made John Cusak and Minnie Driver two of my all time favourite actors.

I love the premise of the movie and the jokes still crack me up ten years later. Joan Cusak is brillant in this film as well. I don't think there'll ever be a time that this isn't one of my all time favourite movies.

Martin Blank (Cusack) and is a hitman with some emotional problems. He goes to a shrink (Arkin) who doesn't want him, and has had recurring dreams about his long lost love (Driver) for 10 years since he stood her up on Prom night. When Blank gets an invitation to his School reunion he is originally dead against the idea, but when he is hired for a job in his home town he is forced to return home, and to face some old truths.

" I love Grosse Pointe Blank, as a film, the soundtrack, the dark humour, and itโ€™s premise. That being, John Cusack as Martin Blank a professional hitman who returns back home for a high school, and gets another chance with his ex girlfriend, from high school. Dan Aykroyd, plays a rival hitman and is one of my favourite parts of the film. Critics gave it favourable reviews, and did pretty ok with filmgoers. But didnโ€™t nearly as well at the box office."
