Grosse Pointe Blank - 5

It looked like it had potential, but I was unimpressed. The story is outrageous. A contract killer returns for his high school reunion, reconnects with his prom date, who he stood up, and saves her father from being killed. While at times funny (at other times just violent), the story is just uninteresting. Although it has good actors- John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Alan Arkin, and Dan Aykroyd- once again the actors can't turn this into a good story. Not much needs to be said, good potential but it falls flat (and not even a funny falling).
Check out these films instead: Say Anything, High Fidelity, The Girl in the Cafe, and Love Actually.
