4.5 out of 10 A gem
Niamh from Louth, 14 Apr 2008
Brilliant performances from John and Joan Cusack, Hank Azaria, Alan Arkin and Dan Akyroyd, amoung others. A very tightly written comedy with excellent dialogue and some superb slap-stick. This movie stands up to repeated watching, which is not something you can say about every action-comedy, and is filled with superbly observed little details. Good gimmick for including the 80s soundtrack as well (even the bad songs sound great in the context!)

3 out of 10 Cusack draws a blank
Lynda from Dublin, 25 Feb 2008
School reunions are awkward at best, but try being a paid assasin. Martin Blank dodges bullets, a rival assasin and some uncomforable questions from his ex, in this light-hearted look at a paid killer's everyday life. Joan Cusack (John's sister), portrays a very witty background secretary.

4 out of 10 Good movie
David from Dublin, 16 Jul 2007
Fun quirky comedy about a guy who has an awkward time explaining to his former classmates and girlfriend at a high school reunion that he has become a professional hitman. Fun, amusing and over the top in a good way.

Suzanne from Dublin, 21 Jun 2007
Excellent movie. Have loved this movie for years. Its really funny and the storylines are brilliant. John Cusack is one of the most over-looked actors. Must-see!

What's it about....
Grosse Pointe Blank is the witty, dark comedy starring John Cusack that's being hailed by both critics and audiences for its outlandish plot and irreverent humour! Unlike his High School friends who become respected professionals, Martin Blank (Cusack) found a lucrative career as a hit man. But the job has lost its appeal and Martin faces an uncertain future. Now, he finds himself back in his home town of Grosse Pointe to attend his ten-year High School reunion complete one...
