Romance and a bit of '80s nostalgia were in the air today as a pack of Lloyd Dobler lookalikes descended upon various New York City locations to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cameron Crowe's beloved romantic comedy 'Say Anything.' The day also marked the release of the movie's 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray and DVD.
'Say Anything,' with its witty, natural dialogue and believable characters, was a refreshing departure from typical teen rom-coms back in the day, and underachieving kickboxer Dobler (a typically understated John Cusack), was a perfect anti-hero. In the movie's most celebrated scene, the lovelorn Lloyd serenades ex-girlfriend Diane (Ione Skye) by holding a boombox playing Peter Gabriel's 'In Your Eyes' outside her bedroom window. (The scene's so classic it's been parodied on both 'South Park' and 'American Dad.')
