Better Off Dead… (1985) - dir. Savage Steve Holland

An offbeat quirky 80s teen movie that deals with suicide in a lighthearted way and stars John Cusack. Well… it went about as well as it could have, and also was as bad is it sounds. Moments of the film were hysterical - but it was just a string of bits and scenarios, never a film. I can see why some people return to this or why it has a “cult” tag, but the film is too weird and hokey, and all the lulls make you pay attention more to the story - and it’s east to see right through it.
