Better Off Dead (ej svensk text) (Blu-ray)
Komedi från 1985 av Savage Steve Holland med John Cusack och David Ogden Stiers.
Writer/Director Savage Steve Holland says BETTER OFF DEAD is semi-autobiographical. After his high school love ditched him, he picked up an 8-millimeter camera and made some depressing movies that had the exact opposite effect on his friends - they laughed.
After his girlfriend (Amanda Wyss) ditches him for a boorish ski jock, Lane (John Cusack) decides that suicide is the only answer. However, his increasingly inept attempts bring him only more agony and embarrassment. Filled with the wildest teen nightmares, a family you can't help but identify with and a host of wonderful comic characters, Savage Steve Holland's writing/directorial debut is a masterful look at those painfully funny teen years.
