Lloyd Dobler Lives!

One of my all-time favourite movies (listed on movies4kids under ‘teens’ but that does it a disservice) is Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything, with John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler, the boy every woman wishes she had met and fallen in love with. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you probably know its most famous scene, when Lloyd stands outside his love’s house, and raises a boombox over his head (it was 1989) that is playing Peter Gabriel’s ‘In Your Eyes’.

Well, a couple of nights ago Peter Gabriel was performing at the Hollywood Bowl, and who should come out – bringing him a boombox – but John Cusack, just as Gabriel began to sing the song. Here’s the terrific moment below, followed by a clip from the movie itself. If you’ve never seen it, rent it now – it’s truly brilliant.
