Shout-out to a Twitter mutual for this recommendation! She must have known I have a soft spot for “type A meets an endearing, yet maddening type B, and they learn balance from each other while hurtling towards a happily ever after” films.
John Cusack at the height of his charm and powers. Daphne Zuniga playing the perfect better half that is charmed just enough by his shenanigans that she overlooks the annoyance while an unlikely bond forms. Thank your deity of choice she didn’t fall for the total square. Walter’s heeding of John Keating’s advice from “Dead Poet’s Society” pays off in the end… Carpe diem, indeed!
The advice, delivered as only the legendary Robin Williams could: “Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.”
Well worth hunting down a DVD copy on Amazon!
