Quirky mix of laughs, romance, strong violence.

Creative Loafing

With its darkly comic sensibilities and morally flawed protagonists, this won't be to everyone's taste, but those who can get on its wavelength will appreciate the savory witticisms and dryly acute observations.

Movie Metropolis

For John Cusack lovers, "Grosse Pointe Blank" is one of his best, an engaging showcase for his droll demeanor and a seamless blend of comedy and action. It's light entertainment, in spite of the body count.

Despite some early indications from the two Cusacks and Arkin that it's going to be funny, it winds up an unholy mess that becomes steadily more incoherent -- morally, dramatically, and conceptually.

The action is fast and furious, and so are the punchlines.

Armitage encourages [Gen-Xers] to keep the skeptical attitude, but to also negotiate some sort of confusing middle ground between maintaining the image without "selling out".

For what is essentially a one-joke movie, this has an awful lot going for it.

It's the best date film I've seen in a long time: at least 12 people die.

Calling this blend of comedy and violence Tarantino lite may sound like a bash, but it isn't.

Except for a few near-miss scenes, director George Armitage's romantic comedy hits the target.

As a whole, this film only succeeds in making extraordinary people and situations to look banal.

Palo Alto Weekly

If you can ignore the tiresome romance and the incessant playing of largely inane music on the soundtrack, Grosse Point Blank has much to recommend it.
