John Cusack Superb In ‘Grosse Pointe’

By The Spokesman-Review

It’s been a long time since John Cusack has starred in the kind of comedy that best suits his talents. Harking back to “Say Anything” in particular, “Grosse Pointe Blank” is that kind of film. Cusack portrays a killer for hire who attends his 10-year high school reunion, reunites with his former flame (Minnie Driver) and begins to rethink his choice of career. The climactic violence is a bit explicit, but the overall mood is light, the jokes come fast and Cusack is superb. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
