Better Off Dead Quote-a-long

There are a zillion ways to earn a laugh, but one thing we can ALL agree on is that suicidal depression is HIIIIILARIOUS! Just ask Lane Meyer (John Cusack), a heartbroken teenager who just can’t seem to catch a lethal break. Pills, nooses, carbon monoxide poisoning…nothin’ does the trick. But when his ex-beloved Beth starts schmucking around with arrogant ski warrior Roy, Lane realizes that he must put his self-destructive powers towards a better purpose: the total decimation of The Enemy!

Enter French heroine Monique (Diane Franklin), who joins school scuzzbomb Charles De Mar in preparing Lane for the ultimate in downhill combat…plus she gives him some “international language” lessons along the way. THE quintessential anything-goes ‘80s comedy, with enough exploding neighbors, crawling dinners, racist zingers and guitar-shredding cheeseburgers to annihilate audiences across the universe.

      It was like getting hit on by your mother's older friend while her Big Ass boyfriend is sitting right next to her. Did she really need to flash me as part of her half-time show?

    The movie starts @7:30. I will be inside the theater by 7:00 since there will be a pre-movie show based on the actors, the director, the genre, etc...
