Hot Pursuit needs to be in the discussion for best 80s John Cusack! It’s got a very young Ben Stiller (Zoolander) playing a bad guy and acting along side his dad Jerry, Robert Loggia (Scarface) is wonderfully unhinged as a pirate, the energetic pacing and narrative drive is excellent throughout. A real personal fav. Love Cusack losing his shit during the plane terrorism scene, realising his been kidnapped at sea, going Rambo with his girlfriend’s father and Wendy Gazelle’s (The Net) gymnastics. It’s proper 80s so some of it hasn’t aged well - the Jamaican stereotypes for example. Still, it’s a banger with lots of stuff paying off at the end.
Say Anything is probably the best 80s Cusack film, but Hot Pursuit is best 80s Cusack.
