    I am sensing a pattern with John Cusack films and your preferences.
    You are not wrong. The Sure Thing is a big fave of mine also. I've gone off him since he became old and serious, though...

    I noticed JC's films' relationships do get more complicated over time. Its sort of simple and breezy in say anything, gets more complicated and nuanced in GPB, a bit breezy again in Serendipity and all complicated and convoluted in High Fidelity. I'm omitting American Sweethearts because I never like it.

    I think he used to do the light hearted stuff to bankroll the vanity projects, like Max.

    Has anyone said Brendan Gleeson and Domhnall Gleeson yet? Aka Mad-Eye Moody and Bill Weasley. It's great because Domhnall's favourite line in it was saying 'Mad-Eye's dead', which is amusingly dark.

    OHHHHH. I know it's not a film but Benedict Cumberbatch's real-life parents play the Holmes parents in Sherlock.

    I suppose films about Hitler have limited box office potential. I like JC best in comedies although I have been meaning to see the Grifters because its his first proper serious role.

    The media is very nepotistic. Loads of offsprings of actors are in acting or related roles.

    I've seen Grifters and whilst he is very good in it, it is horribly dark and I couldn't watch it twice. Comedy all the way for me.

    And they aren't always in front of the camera roles.
