    the original cusack. here john plays a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, plays guitar, and enjoys kickboxing without knowing what he wants to do in the future.


    one crazy summer

    an earlier, less realized cusack. john finds himself as a likeable single guy who may or may not have somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, while cartooning in cape cod and getting involved in wacky summer movie type shit.


    better off dead.

    screwball comedy placing cusack in the role of a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, a french exchange chick who lives across the street from him.


    high fidelity

    in this one john plays a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, and owns a record store with wacky employees.


    grosse pointe blank

    this ones kind of a stretch. john plays a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, while being employed as a hitman looking to exit the business during a return visit to his hometown.

    the hollywood cusack. in a wild twist of character, we see cusack as a a likeable married star guy who's somehow had bad luck in his marriage and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, who turns out to be his wifes assistant. in my opinion this one came from left field.


    serendipity
    [​IMG]

    definitive cusack. in this one john redefines the role of a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, this time with less annoying plot distractions.


    must love dogs
    [​IMG]

    the most recent cusack, involving animals. basically about a likeable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, whom he finds through a personal ad about loving dogs. wack.


    **Bonus:

    being john malkovich
    [​IMG]

    cusack, but on crack. the story of a likeable nonsingle guy who's somehow had bad luck in his marriage and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl, but doesnt do that at all. instead he fucks everything up by finding a hole in an office wall that leads into john malkovich's brain then drops him onto the nj turnpike, which in turn leads to all kinds of oddball uncusackian shit.

    ***take in mind,
    its also my contention that in all other movies featuring cusack it should just be assumed that he is playing a likable single guy who's somehow had bad luck in his past relationships and must learn from his mistakes to get the 'perfect' girl ... but isnt necessarily highlighting that angle on screen.

    (not to be overlooked: an 85% chance he'll at one point be "caught in the rain" in any given film)

    You forgot this one:

    [​IMG]

    Where John plays a likeable single guy trying to score with the ladies who gets selected for jury duty in a plot to screw over the gun industry, and secretly hiding his relationship with the woman who's playing both sides.

    Haha, she was probably the best thing about that movie, too. Could also be known as "Traditional Grisham Cusack".
