The true horror in what these women do as they stalk and circle isn’t so much the harmful downfall that awaits their targets, but that they feign compassion and interest as a tool of the entrapment. It goes beyond just the lure of carnal pleasure; it’s something that promises a real human connection. How many predators on the plains or the tundra actually hang out and have a beer with their food before eating it?

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?
