Say Anything 2
Twenty years after Diane and Lloyd flew off into the sunset we finally get the answer of whether Diane needed someone or needed him. Once the two moved to Paris, Lloyd really made a name for himself in the kickboxing world (sport of the future!). Turns out Diane peaked in high school and never quite got over her father’s indictment so once in a new place she didn’t know how to live. It was up to Lloyd Dobbler to be the man she fell in love with but better. And for awhile it worked. That is until the resentment kicked in (eh, kicked in? kickboxing reference?!?) and Lloyd was sick of being the rock. No matter what he did Diane didn’t make a contribution to the household and just wrote her father letter after letter while he was in prison to have them all returned back to her. It is like everything that happened in their relationship was compared to that first summer. Lloyd kept it up too, for awhile but it was Diane that didn’t keep her end of the bargain up.
Say Anything 2 is the very sad story of a textbook perfect love story and the dissolution on it all. Looks like this time Diane might be giving her heart and Lloyd will be giving the pen!
