When you’re an 18-year-old boy, Lloyd Dobler is the guy you want to be: fearless but fragile, self-assured but shaky, handsome but humble, passionate but a little bit pretentious, and above all things, a kickboxer. If you’re an 18-year-old girl (or 25, or 37), Lloyd Dobler is the guy you want to be with. As we’ve put forth recently in these very pages, Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything… is the modern romance that resonates like no other, and it is, like so many great films of the ’80s, a movie that many of us first found on video. So it only seems right that its wizened heart beats loudest on DVD.
