Additional Details

Videocassette release of the 1985 motion picture.

John Cusack, David Ogden Stiers, Diane Franklin, Kim Darby.

After his girlfriend ditches him for a boorish ski jock, Lane decides that suicide is the only answer. However, his increasingly inept attempts only bring him more agony and embarrassment. Filled with the wildest teen nightmares, a family you can't help but identify with, and a host of wonderful comic characters, Savage Steve Holland's writing/directorial debut is a masterful look at those painfully funny teen years.

DVD, Dolby digital English stereo; widescreen.

better off dead is funny, funny, funny!

Best 80's movie

There's a dancing hamburger. Need I say more? Cusack delivers his typical neurotic leading man role really well.
