A ’90s classic!
Although not nearly as popular as it deserves to be, GROSS POINTE BLANK has become an increasingly respected cult flick in the year following its theatrical release and it’s not hard to see why. The movie is probably the only film on earth that is able to blend comedy, graphic violence, and romance together perfectly, which is what makes it such a classic. John Cusack is excellent as Martin Q. Blank, a hit-man who attends his ten-year high school reunion. At first he doesn’t want to, but decides to go since he has a case there and he wants to see his old girlfriend Debbie (Minnie Driver) again. This dark comedy is heavy on exciting action, suspense, gunfire, laughs, and fun, but it doesn’t have not quite enough character development for my taste (a bit more on how Martin became accustomed to killing would have been nice). Still, GROSSE POINTE BLANK was one of the best films of 1997 and one of the better comedies of the 1990s. There were rumors of a sequel happening for a while, though the chances of that happening are slim to none. Too bad.
Disappointing – Blank is a good word for it…
They say a camel is a horse designed by a committee. Well, with four screenwriters, this is a camel of a film. John Cusack and Dan Aykroyd don’t make it as hit men for me to begin with. Cusack was great playing against type as Nelson Rockefeller in Cradle Will Rock, but he keeps just enough of his lovesick blues to make himself look miscast here. Aykroyd is just too much of a goofball to pull of this role.
The buildup to any sort of satisfying payoff just isn’t enough to sustain you through the film. And the payoff isn’t much anyway.
Even though this predates Analyze This and The Sopranos, the psychiatrist scenes seem a little derivative, but Alan Arkin does a great job, and the scenes with Arkin and Cusack are wonderful. As usual Cusack and sister Joan have some great scenes together, but they don’t compensate for what is otherwise a rather tiring story.
