Overview
John Cusack (Say Anything..., Grosse Pointe Blank) and Daphne Zuniga (Spaceballs) take a road trip to romance in The Sure Thing, a charming and thoughtful comedy classic that only the 80s could deliver, presented here in a special 30th Anniversary edition on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory.

When college student Walter Gibson (Cusack) gets set up for a date with an incredibly gorgeous blonde (Nicollette Sheridan in her film debut), he's ready to go to the ends of the earth — or at least across the country — to capitalize on this "sure thing." Paired up with tightly-wound coed Alison Bradbury (Zuniga) via the campus ride-share program, he heads west for Los Angeles. But as the obstacles begin to pile up, he and Alison begin to form an unexpected bond... and soon Gib must choose between the sure thing and the real thing.

Directed by Rob Reiner (This Is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride), The Sure Thing is exactly what the title suggests for fans of raucously funny road trips, red-hot romantic comedies and romps through 80's angst featuring John Cusack!
