Finally got the time to sit down and do this post for reals. John Cusack.. be still my heart!!! This is literally my most favourite movie of all time. OF ALL TIME.

#25. Say Anything (1989)

“The world is full of guys. Be a man. Don’t be a guy.”

SYNOPSIS: An improbable couple meets after high school graduation and must deal with their friends, family, and other pressures just to stay together. Lloyd Dobler is an average kickboxer with a good heart but limited ambition. Diane Court is an aloof genius who is very closely protected by her father. Lloyd wants nothing more than to go out with beautiful and intelligent Diane Court. Lloyd attempts to win her heart over the objections of her father before Diane leaves for a scholarship in England.

WHY IS IT ON THE LIST: This is the best movie ever. It's one of those typical eighties teen romances but it's perfect and it has John Cusack in it, so that's why. Ha. More in depth answer? Okay then - I love the characters. I love the way their romance is portrayed. It's realistic and true and beautiful. I like the back story with Diane and her father. I love Lloyd. He's the type of guy I always wanted to date. I love the quirky side characters and all the romantic lines and I even love their breakup and how it affects Lloyd because it's partly hilarious and partly so depressing that I can't bring myself to finish the movie (I always do though!). I highly recommend this movie to EVERYONE, because it's that good. Promise.
