"Better Off Dead" posterCampus Films. “Better Off Dead.” (U.S. 1985, directed by Steve Holland, 97 min., rated PG.) Lane Myer (John Cusack) is stuck in a personal hell. A compulsive, adolescent everyman growing up in Suburbia, USA, he fails to make the prestigious high school ski team (again), and his beloved sweetheart, Beth, also leaves him for Roy, the team's popular, arrogant captain. If this isn't bad enough, he's stuck with a mother who frighteningly experiments — rather than cooks — with food, a brother who builds rockets out of models, and a best friend so desperate for drugs that he settles for snorting powdered snow. Faced with these prospects, Lane opts to end it all ... until he comes up with a ridiculous plan to gain acceptance and win Beth back. Sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the Student Senate. Davies Theatre, 6 and 8:30 p.m. Through Sept. 4.
