overrated early crowe flick which features john cusack in the rain (again). it’s a fine film and i can understand (to a certain extent) why it’s a classic, but i can’t really say that it’s great outside of its time. some films (ferris bueller, breakfast club) succeed outside of their time because they’re well-constructed, timeless (often in spite of their soundtrack), and the characters are well-drawn. i felt that the characters in say anything were a little easy, but i did enjoy the angle with the shady father – it caught me offguard and darkened things up a bit. decent enough soundtrack and mostly good performances.
