    It's a tiny world. (I mention much earlier in the thread that two more Cusack siblings are in GPB as well, but I'll repeat it here in case you didn't start at the top.)

    GPB is one of my favourite films. I can't remember if John and Joan played siblings in 16 Candles, they did in Say Anything. I vaguely knew the other Cusack siblings were actors but did not know they were in GPB.

    Its quite amusing to think two lots of unrelated Cusacks families have a lot of their family in films.

    I.e. John Cusack and the children of the late Cyril Cusack e.g. Sinead Cusack who is married to Jeremy Irons.

    GPB is probably my favourite film of all time. I know there are films which are objectively better, but I just like this one best. The waiter in the cocktail bar is brother Bill and drunken Amy is their sister Ann. Mum's a maths teacher in real life. She's not in it!

    I suppose you could call it a black rom com. Its witty and a bit dry, like the Thin Man films.

    John seem to like to star with British actresses

    It would be handy to be in acting to meet and work with actors although there loads of other jobs you can do in the film industry.

    I like Say Anything as well, I liked his innocence and Iona Skye was really good as well. in fact I like a lot of John's films except Must like Dog which was a bit of a dog.

    I adore Say Anything. Second favourite film of all time. The boombox scene makes me tear up every time.

    I have no aspirations to be in the film industry, although I would love to make props.

    I am sensing a pattern with John Cusack films and your preferences.
