Episode #278: “A dare to be great situation” | Say Anything (1989)

Welcome to our final entry for 1989… and our final 80s movie of the 30Something Movie Podcast! It’s bittersweet ending to the decade we love so much, but in many ways this is the perfect movie to end it with.

John Cusack, Ione Skye and John Mahoney star in Say Anything.
