Say Anything...(1989): review: 7/10

In the final days of high school in the 80s, a nicey nicey super intelligent girl (who alas is something of a wet sock and who has an excessively close relationship with her widowed father) meets a smooth uninteresting kickboxer with limited intellectual capacity: after many exhausting conversations they fornicate in a motor car.

If the characters are dull, the film is not: Cusak has a certain charm, and portrays the nervousness of early adulthood in an intelligent, understated way.
