Crowe’s characters stood in stark contrast to the teen films of the era; they were nervous and complicated and idiosyncratic, and that went for the grown-ups too. Say Anything… plays now like the last gasp from that era, a warm and sympathetic portrait of the teen years where everyone, even the grown-ups, transcends their stock type. But it also points the way towards more sophisticated ideas about the relationships between men and women, specifically by creating a proto-feminist male hero whose best friends are girls, and who sees his male contemporaries as laughable stooges.

Was ‘Say Anything…’ the End of a Teen-Movie Era?
