The Sure Thing Reviews
DIRECTED BY: Rob Reiner
SUMMARY: A college student plans a cross-country trip to get laid, but ends up traveling with a young woman. She can't stand him, and he just wants to get to L.A., where a sexy "sure thing" is waiting to greet him with open arms.
MY THOUGHTS: I really love the 80's movie's. Especially the ones with John Cusack. He has been my favorite for a long time and still is. This movie is like clean version of our todays American Pie, and films like those. The story isn't nothing new. It's been done many times. Girl and boy hate each other, but secretly love each other. Girl is stuck up, boy is fun and carefree. Opposites attrack. So the ending is obvious, but it's the ride you take to the ending that makes this movie great. It's completely character driven and the actor's make the character's feel real and honest. Great movie and well worth the watch.
Join in the joy when Gibs finally kisses Alison. :)
The movie follows these two characters as they make their way from the East Coast to California. They rent riding space with the same couple as part of a ride share & they already hate each other. They get kicked out on the freeway after Cusack convinces Zuniga to do something "crazy" and they must make their way to California with very little resources, since this was before cell phones.
A lot of fun.
Well worth another look.
