So, rating-wise, I cant conscience less than five stars. Are the flaws? Yeah, plenty. But this is an original, non-Hollywood boiler-plate film. It will engage those who care.
But, to the BluRay transfer? Dear God, it sucks balls.
Can someone tell me why literally HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of YouTube videos can push me vibrant 4K contest FROM THEIR BEDROOMS (for free, no less) yet the corporate powers-that-be repeatedly fail to transfer 35mm to film with ANY visual clarity?
This is an honest question. Please, anyone, enlighten me. Because I lay my money down. And this looks like a grainy piece of garbage, that does not, in any way, do justice to the quality of this film.
"Thanks for the pen."
The very concept of the film is simply hilarious. The humour is fantastic throughout the film. And every line delivered with perfect timing. It's a great story.

No sign of the actual actors, John Cusack and Minnie Driver. Cusack plays his adorable personality in this role of a killer. Not a far stretch. The romance was believable, which I appreciated. There were no annoying scenes, a rarity. The comedy was pleasant.

The soundtrack is very British punk and ska and recalls good times; however it does not repay a good stereo as the reproduction could have been far better. I cant see a teenager listening to The Clash, and then waiting for Blank in an $800 prom dress, but with the right soundtrack you would get "When Peggy Sue Got married" - a very different High School reunion, but same disappointed prom queen, but here she got the man.
Thankfully Minnie Driver's part is just one of his relationships explored in the movie.
This has great acting, a funky story and great comedy timing.
