A directionless senior (John Cusack) wants nothing more out of life than to practice karate and woo the gorgeous, good natured, and seemingly unattainable valedictorian (Ione Skye). Cameron Crowe's Say Anything... is funny, innocent, intelligent and on an entirely different plane than most similar fare. Having never been much of a Cusack fan I have to admit that he boasts definite appeal here. Skye is absolutely adorable and John Mahoney is strong in a supporting role as her doting father.
