MOVIE: Grosse Pointe Blank

GUEST: Nathan Arizona

NUTSHELL: Professional killer Martin Blank goes on a job in Detroit, takes a side trip to his high school reunion, and hilarity and bloodshed ensues.

GOOD THINGS: Killer ’80s music, succesfully blends genres of romance, comedy, and action — in fact, it’s probably got the highest body count of any film that can be considered a “date movie.”

BAD THINGS: None that I could find

FEATURES: John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Dan Akroyd, Jeremy Piven, Cusack’s sisters Joan and Ann, Alan Arkin

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: None, unless you’re bothered by the amorality of killing people for money.

NOTABLE: Even though you can’t hit a damn thing by firing two handguns at one time, it still looks freakin’ cool in a movie. (Hey two-fisted gunplay is my life! – ed.)

BEST PART: Cusack and Piven disposing of a body to the music of Nena’s “99 Luftballons.”

BEST LINE: Thanks for the pen.

CROWNS: 5 out of 5
