10 reasons why Grosse Pointe Blank rules the earth. 1. It's one of thos eiflms that I can watch again and again and yet never tire of. The wit is so fresh and so surprisingly blood-curdling. The performances capture the perfect balance between optimism for the future and self-pity for the way time has passed amidst unrealised dreams. 2. Everytime I reminiss with friends about how its been so long since school (only actually about 3 years) someone will invariably shout: "10 years!!!" 3. It came out at almost the exact same time as Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, an infinitely inferior reunion film. All this release served to do was highlight how good GPB really is. 4. Amazing soundtrack! This is one of my most played albums of the 90s! 5. It's chock full of hilarious quotes, the brilliance of which will never die: "When we observe the subject in an illegal act, only then can we intervene and terminate." "Why don't you just shoot the fucker?" "How did ya get the gig!" "Well, you know, they were hiring. And it was only a two week course." "When are you authorised to use lethal force?" "If you're on the property, I can do what I gotta do." "Thanks for the pen." "You're not gonna get to do your little job, because we're gonna do it for you. And when we've done your little job we're gonna do another little job." "What?" "Like I'm gonna put a bullet hole in your f*&king forehead and I'm gonna f*&k the brain-hole!" "Nice talk sugar mouth." "What like a union?" "No, more like a club." "And you will be the head of this organisation, or more like a father-figure to me?" "Hey if you need a father I'll give you a spanking." 6. It showcases Jeremy Piven in all his underappreciated glory. You just know! his character wasn't cool in high school. 7. Minnie Driver CAN do a U.S. accent! 8. Sports. Sex. No real relationships. 9. The amazingly violent and gruesome death scne of the East European hit man at Blank's reunion. 10. For re-introducing Dan Ackroyd back to the world of quality cinema in a big way. Bring on an S.E. I love this film.
