Grosse Pointe Blank is most probably one of, if not THE best work of John Cusack as an actor/comedian. He is also co-writer and co-producer on this one. Now, I give 5 stars for all of the reasons already stated by other reviewers who really dig and GET this film.
ONE QUESTION:
WHY THE .... ARE THERE REVIEWS FROM 2002 AND 2004 OF VHS COPIES OF THE MOVIE? This is the page for the GROSSE POINTE BLANK BLU-RAY release, people. Note to Amazon.ca/.com (it's not the first time that I complain about this): IS THERE ANY WAY THAT YOU CAN REVIEW YOUR REVIEWS AND ASK SOME RESPONSIBLE EMPLOYEE/REVIEWER TO CUT THE STUPID OUTDATED USELESS REVIEWS OUT PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE? Thank you.

I enjoy the movie, which is why I bought it, but if you advertise a 25th anniversary edition there should be something extra to make it
a special addition. I don't know call me crazy. Also, a trailer is not an extra unless it is Redband.

Highly recommended for an enjoyable evening. John Cusack and his sister Joan were right on, and Minnie Driver was very entertaining.

Format: DVD
The dark satiric elements of this film are terrific - equating the
moral emptiness of a hit man's career with the moral emptiness of
modern America is spot on. And the guts to make a comedy full of witty
banter and harsh killing is worth admiring. There are also few moments
where Cusack's killer's humanity comes through, and the movie becomes
really affecting.

But there are also moments, and performances that feel arch and pushed,
jokes that get told one too many times, motivations that are vague, and
Hollywood coincidences. The romance at the center with Minnie Driver,
while having charming bits, never feels very grounded, and the ending
feels like a bit of an easy cop-out.

The film is quite good, bravely odd and dark for a Hollywood film. and
fun, but it sets you up expecting much more of a 'Dr. Strangelovian'
impact than it ultimately has.

Combining elements of thriller, romantic/black comedy, con movies and some Tarantino references, "Grosse Pointe Blank" is a decent offbeat flick that manages to entertain but doesn`t make much of an impression. John Cusack plays a hitman who goes to a highschool reunion in his hometown. He meets his ex-girlfriend (played by Minnie Driver) whom he left ten years ago, and some contrived situations unfold in the process. His job causes a couple of problems, so he figures out that it`s better to choose another kind of life. Although this movie is witty at parts, it doesn`t work very well as a whole and seems too disjointed to convince. The acting is ok, the directing isn`t bad and the soundtrack is good enough (Violent Femmes, The Cure, The Clash, Eels,...), yet the plot and pacing are just too flawed and uneven. This kind of stuff has been done before (and better) in movies like "True Love", so "Grosse Pointe Blank" ends up being a mildly interesting but ultimately disposable effort.
As watchable as it is forgettable.

this is by far one of John Cusacks best movies and one of his great roles as he is a hitman who returns to his home state for a little high school reuion and everyone wants to know what happened to him, including his ex-flame Minnie Driver. other hitmen like Dan Aykroyd and the cops want him either put in jail or dead, but he gots some things up his sleeves. Jeremy Piven adds some spark as a property salesman. great moments include the classic scene when the store blows up, all of Alan Arkin's scenes and it just goes down the line. a must have in anyones collection

Martin Q. Blank is a hitman about to attend his 10-year high school reunion and face the prom date he ditched a decade ago. He has people out to kill him as he returns to Grosse Point, MI to attend these festivities and revisit his past.
His childhood home is now a quickie-mart, where there is a massive shoot-out (I love that the bullets hit a cut-out of the stars of "Pulp Fiction", a movie rife with shoot-outs.) When Martin asks the store clerk is all right, he yells "NO! I'm scared, I'm hurt and I have to find a new job!"
Minnie Driver is excellent as Debi, the jilted date and current radio DJ, who gets back at him on-air. The soundtrack is great, with Bowie's "Under Pressure", the Violent Femmes "Blister in the Sun", and great 1980s songs for their big reunion.
