Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)



Reviews and Comments

John Cusack is a professional assassin who reluctantly finds himself at his ten year high school reunion. Grosse Pointe Blank is a comedy with very dark humor. It's funny, and its cast -- including of at least four Cusacks and Minnie Driver -- is more than up to the task. However, humor and charisma alone aren't enough to drive this film to success. The story is not well told; it lacks the pacing, purpose, and cohesiveness that might have made this a gem of a black comedy.
