This is a likeable film that follows all of the necessary steps to engage an audience. It may not be a sure thing, but it's at least a pretty good bet.

Realization may not be earth shattering, but in an era of fast food and faster sex, return to the traditional is downright refreshing.

One of the great teen comedies of the 80s. One reason why Cusack became what he became

There's plenty of mileage in this pairing, even if the movie isn't going anywhere unexpected.

Walter and Alison are closer to real teenagers, with real doubts and hesitations and uncertainties.

It's a treasure, smartly written, delightfully played (you'll be able to see why Cusack quickly became a star), and scored with a half-dozen period hits...

Rob Reiner's new film, The Sure Thing, is glowing proof of two things: Traditional romantic comedy can be adapted to suit the teen-age trade, and Mr. Reiner's contribution to This Is Spinal Tap was more than a matter of humor.
