Celebrate the 15th anniversary of a killer comedy hit -- now available on Blu-ray for the first time with a sensational new digital restoration. John Cusack (HOT TUB TIME MACHINE) and Academy Award(R) nominees Minnie Driver (Best Supporting Actress, 1997, GOOD WILL HUNTING) and Dan Akyroyd (Best Supporting Actor, 1989, DRIVING MISS DAISY) are hilarious in this surefire knockout, loaded with action and laughs. Martin Blank is a hit man stuck in a career rut when his 10-year high school reunion gives him the chance to rekindle an old flame and pull off one final job. Things are looking up until his arch rival joins the party, aiming to blow the competition away. Pull the trigger on big fun with GROSSE POINTE BLANK on Blu-ray!
Hit man Martin Q. Blank (John Cusack) is in an awkward situation. Several of them, actually. He's attending his high school reunion on an assignment; he's got a rival hit man (Dan Aykroyd) on his tail; and he's going to have to explain to his old girlfriend (Minnie Driver) why he stood her up on prom night. This amiable black comedy, cowritten by Cusack and directed by Jonathan Demme protégé George Armitage (Miami Blues
), has the feel of Demme's Something Wild
and Married to the Mob
--which is to say its humor is dark and brightly colored at the same time. Cusack and Driver are utterly charming--as is the leading man's sister, Joan, who plays his secretary. (Ms. Cusack received an Oscar nomination for her next role, in In & Out
.) Alan Arkin is also very funny as Martin's psychiatrist. --Jim Emerson
