Another 80s coming of age classic. I love Cameron Crowe’s writing and Cusack and Skye have great chemistry. Not sure the dad/IRS subplot was handled the best but damn you can’t deny wooing a girl with Peter Gabriel. That scene is just iconic. Loved it.

“I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.”
