366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 328


The Date: August 23

The Movie: Better Off Dead (1985)

What Is It?: Savage Steve Holland was John Hughes for the kids who huffed glue at the back of the class, and Better Off Dead is his undisputed masterwork. Teen angst embraces surrealism as John Cusack broods over girls and cars, eats Franch fries and meals that look like puke and slither of their own volition, skis deadly slopes, and hangs out with his middle-aged high school chum Curtis Armstrong.

Why Today?: On this day in 1985, Better Off Dead hits theaters.
