Unconventional teen movie with surreal elements
I’ve seen “Better Off Dead…” in late 2017. I have a tendency to avoid teen comedies or coming-of-age films once I passed into adulthood. To my defense, most teen films done lately are atrocities, to say the least, with dumb down characters, playing on stereotypes and modern social issues in the wrong way. Not ten minutes in and I instantly regretted not seeing this movie earlier. It has such a wacky take on teenage days in the 80’s, with a hint of surreal and supernatural.

“Better Off Dead…” is about a high school student, played by boy-wonder John Cusack, who gets dumped by his girlfriend, leaving him with suicidal inclinations while trying to win her back by extreme measures. The characters are simply excellent, just mildly stereotyping the teen genre, with a memorable newspaper boy and his eternal yell “I want my two dollars!”

Savage Steve Holland’s debut film would assure him as a cult director, but sadly once the 90’s emerged, he would fall into an abyss of mediocraty.

“Better Off Dead…” is a unique teen movie that captures the vibe of the 80’s and is an essential watch in a period where the “brat-pack” ruled.

Blurred Realities
Ahhhh…an actual dark comedy. I watched this again, to clear my mind of “Wilbur…”

What makes this a cut above is the composition of sight gags — ‘How to build a space shuttle out of household items’ is in the foreground, and then the eye pulls back to reveal the mother battling a sea monster in a pot, which frustrates her attempt to cook it…Cusack frets over an impossibly broken binding, and in the same frame the ‘paperboy from hell’ appears on a weatherized delivery bicycle…it’s priceless stuff.

The story is told visually, you see…this has less to do with dialogue (although what there is of it, is classic), than with the idea of the writer’s imagination conflated with movie imagination conflated with movie ‘reality’. We see Holland seeing Cusack seeing the situations somewhere in between Holland’s imagination and the platform of the movie (high school role playing – already a confused reality). At key points, Holland literally invents characters on paper or in stop motion animation to further warp that perception. These realities continually blur with ‘real’ reality, and the sheer absurdity keeps it seamless.

Some impressive camera work during the skiing portions.

This is capable film-making that can be enjoyed as what it was meant to be.
