Director Cameron Crowe's love letter to the angst of teenage romance, Say Anything comes to DVD in a very presentable edition from Fox. This is a very sharp looking 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer that features dark black levels, detailed colors, and eye-pleasing fleshtones. While a small amount of grain and edge enhancement are present in the picture, overall, this is a great-looking image. The audio is presented in a newly created Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack in English, as well as Dolby 2.0 Surround in English and French. Most of this 5.1 soundtrack is focused toward the front and center speakers with only the music coming through all of the channels. While this isn't the most aggressive mix ever created, it works very well in the confines of the film. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. Fox has put its fair share of work into the DVD supplements, starting with an exceptionally good commentary track by director Cameron Crowe and actors John Cusack and Ione Skye. Before this track begins, there's a 20-minute introduction by the director and actors, each recounting stories and memories on the production of the film. Nearly 50 minutes of deleted/extended/alternate footage is included that features a lot of cut material as well as some sequences that were trimmed down in the final edit of the film. Some of this material is redundant, while other scenes are absolute gems. Finally, there is a short featurette on the making of the film, two theatrical trailers, eight TV spots, and a quick photo gallery featuring stills from the film. All in all, this is a great package for fans of this touching and now classic love story.
...a film that is really about something, that cares deeply about the issues it contains - and yet it also works wonderfully as a funny, warmhearted romantic comedy.

Who doesn't love John Cusack after watching this film? Amazing story, characters, and music! Peter Gabriel's ''In Your Eyes'' is the perfect song to come pumping out of Lloyd Dobler's boom box standing under Diane Court's window. You have to see this movie, regardless of your age, personal tastes in movies, etc. Amazing.
One of the greatest love stories I have seen ever. Peter Gabriel's ''In Your Eyes'' is still one of the most moving songs about love. This has to be one of John Cusack's most memorable movies.
Say Anything is the love film of the 80¿s. With its memorable characters and unforgettable quotes, Say Anything is sure to capture the hearts of young and old. Lloyd Dobbler is the all around geeky, yet totally heart-stealing guy, who wants to snag a date with the ambitious valedictorian of his high school class, Diane Court. Through out the movie, you¿ll experience the feelings each person shares with each other. From their first kiss after a wild party, to their devastating break up after Diane¿s father encourages her to break it off before she heads to England for college. With the classic scene of him holding his radio outside Diane¿s window playing ¿In Your Eyes,¿ it¿s sure to make you fall in love with him yourself. One thing stands in the way of their unrequited love: Diane¿s father and his dreams of her going off to college. Diane¿s father has gotten himself into some serious problems with the government, though that makes you want to slap him. Diane, however, stupidly listens to him, breaking the whole thing off. Lloyd is stuck in heartbreak, and led us to one of the many memorable lines from the movie, ¿A pen. I give her my heart, and she gives me a pen.¿ The question of them ever getting back together lingers in the air. This movie is sure to capture your heart and make you want to find your own Lloyd Dobbler. As the cover says ¿To know Lloyd Dobbler is to love him.¿
At first I saw the trialer, I was like this looks like a good movie plus John Cusack is in it! So I found it on my brother's netflix, and I was so happy that I didn't have to rent it or anything, and when I watched it . . , oh my goodness. When I saw the movie was about to end, I was fliiping out. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to keep watcing it, and the ending, it was like "I cannot believe it just ended!". That very day, I went to the store and bought it. I loved it. The characters were great (Especially Lloyd dobbler aka John Cusack), it was romantic and funny, and I watched it again the very night I bought it, but this time i made my sister watch it too. Of course she loved it. My cousin on the other hand thought the movie looked stuoid by it's trailer, but once I finally got her able to watch it, oh did she regret what she said earlier. I wish I had a Lloyd Dobbler! (P.S. I totally recomend evrybody to just stop wasting your time reading this long review, and just but it!)
A very sweet movie, yet it teaches you something about honesty...
I had never actually heard of 'Say Anything', and honestly I have never been into the 80s teen movies. However, my mum bought this, and I thought I would throw it on. The entire movie kept me intrigued, and I fell in love with it. As the cover of the DVD says ¿To know Lloyd Dobbler is to love him.¿ It¿s true. This movie provides me with a little bit of hope, especially the end scene. I would recommend it to anyone who just needed a little reassurance that `everything will be okay¿.
'Say Anything' is the quintessential 80's film----it should not be missed by anyone. John Cusack as Lloyd Dobbler will steal your heart, and make you wish that there was a Lloyd in your life. Cameron Crowe is one of the best writers and directors in the industry. This movie contains some of the best lines ever written for feature films. My personal favorite is when Lili Taylor's character, Cory, tells Lloyd 'Don't be a guy. The world is full of guys. Be a man'. How perfect a line! There are so many more quotable lines in this movie, but if you want to hear them---watch it for yourself. You will be glad that you did. This movie is still tops my list of favorites of all time!
This movie is an 80's classic. I'm such an 80's child. It's a must see for those 80's baby boomers.
This movie shows that even young love should be taken seriously, and let's face it most people don't take that seriously at all. John Cusack is amazing and Peter Gabriel's ''In Your Eyes'' is the perfect touch to pull at our heartstrings.
This movie has a different vibe than the other 80's teen movies, and I think it's pretty good.
