the wuc bytes – grosse pointe blank

Mondays mornings are akin to having my ass sand-papered after a long bike ride.

Insult to wedgie is the fucking two-hour management meeting which goes down first thing every Monday. Being coherent and upright really sticks in my craw. (I confess, I told the sun to fuck off this morning.) (It was shining right in my eye, your honour!)

Pause for photo of Ryan Reynolds’ undies and zen-inducing breath.

Ah, Grosse Pointe (turns to greet movie warmly), I love you as if you single-handedly nullify Baz Lurman’s existence. Blessed be those Cusacks, John or Joan. They make me happy in my John Hughes bone. Such is my joo-joo love that, while Minnie Driver burns my toast to volcanic lava with her prolific freckles and outlandish chin, just this once I’m gonna let it slide.

“You can never go home again, Oatman! But I guess you can shop there.”

I'm a chick living in Australia, working for the man. I hate office work with a passion usually reserved for James Cameron, but somehow I ended up with a career behind a desk, stapling my forehead at random intervals.

  1. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Not only because it’s wickedly funny, but it’s pretty damn deep, too. My favorite scene? When his sister (I think) is telling him to breathe, and he cocks his gun and says,”This is me. Breathing.” Classic.

  2. You have no idea how epic it is to pop over to this blog and have Grosse Pointe Blank in one of the first posts I see. It’s apparently my life’s mission to have to force people to see this movie so they stop looking at me like an idiot every time I reference it.

    I will now commence plowing through the archives of your blog. Such is your fate when you like a post of mine and then you have kick-ass movies referenced on your front page.

  3. You have such a wicked sense of humor – I will see Grosse Pointe tonight with friends !

  4. I watched this ages ago… I barely remember the plot except for the fact that John Cusack was an assassin attending his high school reunion. And I vaguely remember Joan Cusack who played his assistant? Minnie Driver is vague in my memory. High Fidelity still remains to be my fav John Cusack flick.

  5. I have always like the Cusacks. Grosse Pointe Blank is funny as hell. don’t forget about Minnie Driver. What ever happen to her. The last time I saw her was on a tv show called the Riches. That show was good,but they took it off the air. And they had the nerve not ask me if it was ok.

wot say you?
