    I’m in lust with Kate. Kate and black leather. Can’t remember the movie (vampires and wolves) but there was one scene, black leather zipped or unzipped and a kiss. I will remember that kiss fifty years from now. 😀

    Love John!
    I was just looking through the Christmas listings today and have this circled as one of a small handful of films that sounded like something I would like to watch. So, I’m there. Red or white? Never mind, I’ll bring both, am sure there will be more coming to drink it.

    🙂 Enjoy!

    Kate is the hottest girl on film. I love that movie – a nonthinker – my favorite kind these days.

    ok…first of all Kate is my wife…she does not know it yet, but she is……there was a voodoo ceremony, blood was spllied, it’s official as far as I’m concerned. Secondly John Cusak, one of my favourite actors…

    Grosse Pointe Blank
    Better off Dead
    Hifidelity

    three amazing movies…all rewatchable many times over
    ” I want my two dollars!!”….

    who from the 80’s does not remember that line. And Grosse Pointe Blank….is a fucking classic..

    Martin: They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they’ve all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? “I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How’ve you been?”

    Martin: Hi. I’m, uh, I’m a pet psychiatrist. I sell couch insurance. Mm-hmm, and I — and I test-market positive thinking. I lead a weekend men’s group, we specialize in ritual killings. Yeah, you look great! God, yeah! Hi, how are you? Hi, how are you? Hi, I’m Martin Blank, you remember me? I’m not married, I don’t have any kids, and I’d blow your head off if someone paid me enough.

    Debi: You’re a psychopath.
    Martin: No, no. Psychopaths kill for no reason. I kill for *money*. It’s a *job*. That didn’t come out right

    Martin: You don’t know my cat. It’s very demanding.
    Debi: “It”? You don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl?
    Martin: I respect its privacy.

    Ok, enough quotes. Then he makes this peice of crap movie, Serindipity my ass, and that god damn flute player wearing the sheepskin vest….gaaaaak,

    Go rent Grosse Pointe Blank with a friend you grew up with, it’ll be worth it…..

    My turn for cynicism:
    The thing I don’t get is the part where they lust after each other and then they get the bright idea to leave it up to fate. Who is ever that lucky?

    Not me, anyway. 😀
