Is anyone else on my f-list a fan of Say Anything?

It's probably one of my two favorite teen movies (the other one is "The Breakfast Club") and definitely one of my favorite romances.

I love the fact that the plot is so simple: a rather laid-back, no plans for the future Lloyd Dobler asks out the school Valeditorian, Diane, who is a good and pretty girl, very close to her father, but doesn't really connect or have fun. Basically, the movie charts their relationship over the summer. It's low-key, and feels so real, and I dare anyone not to fall in love with it. And I love what it has to say about men and women (Diane is clearly the workaholic one and Lloyd the caretaker, and the movie is totally fine with it).

And there are bits in it that make me cry. "I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen." Sniffle, sob, bawl...
