“Better Off Dead”. The top of your list of things to do when visiting a foreign country has got to be to live in a house where the host mother considers it her duty to foist off her groping, mucus filled son onto you in the hopes of continuing a genetic line that is sketchy at best. In “Better Off Dead”, Monique gets to spend the majority of her American experience fending off Ricky in a series of dates that redefine the concept of awful, from dinner at the neighbors’ house to rides to school with John Cusack’s character, Lane Meyer. There is no place to escape since she lives with the enemy and the enemy’s overbearing, intrusive mother. Enjoy the dinner at the Meyer’s house as terrible “cuisine” meets with Cusack’s sly quips at the romance between Ricky and Monique.
