"She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen."
The taglines of this movie really say it all...To know Lloyd Dobler is to love him. Diane Court is about to know Lloyd Dobler.
She's got every thing going for her. He's going for her with every thing he's got.
This tale of high schoolish romance and woe comes from the ingenious mind of Cameron Crowe.
First of all -- let me just say I love John Cusack and Cameron Crowe. Okay - on with the review.
High school senior Lloyd Dobler [John Cusack] wants nothing more than to go out with beautiful and intelligent Diane Court [Ione Skye]. Eventually they become friends with possibilities! Although in this day and age that is better known as Friends with Benefits. Lloyd attempts to woo Diane's heart over the objections of her protective father [John Mahoney]. Lloyd must do all this in 16 weeks, before Diane leaves for a scholarship in England at the end of the summer. Will Lloyd and Diane be able to deal with their friends, family, and other pressures just and stay together?
Guest Stars include Cusack's sister Joan Cusack, his real life best friend Jeremy Piven, Bebe Neuwirth, and Chynna Phillips.Lloyd is the type of guy that every girl longs for. Will Diane be able to see that in time?
This is a heartwarming movie that reaffirms the notion that love is out there somewhere. I would say this is a good date movie, snuggle up with someone you love and remember sometimes you don't have to SAY ANYTHING at all...
