Getting dumped by his girlfriend leads Lane Meyer (John Cusack) to a series of hilarious─and totally inept─suicide attempts in this offbeat teen comedy from writer/director Savage Steve Holland. While not trying to do himself in, Lane deals with his mother's bad cooking, encounters two drag-racing brothers, hits it off with a pretty foreign exchange student, and tries to evade a paperboy who just wants his two dollars. With David Ogden Stiers, Kim Darby, Diane Franklin. 97 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English.
