"...A wild at heart, anarchic comedy that believes in living dangerously....GROSSE POINTE BLANK manages to be consistently surprising..."
Wall Street Journal - 11/13/2009
"[The film] sustains an impressive level of crazed logic and whirligig energy."
A nihilistically philosophical hit man reluctantly accepts an assignment in Detroit, coinciding with his 10-year high school reunion in the ritzy suburb of Grosse Point, Michigan. While in town, he tries to patch things up with the girlfriend he abandoned on prom night, avoid being killed by an over-zealous competitor's henchmen, and survive his surreal homecoming. A bullet-ridden, darkly comedic tale of self-discovery from star-writer-producer Cusack. Recommended.
