Well, I can't comment on the link, but I can say a few things on this,
firstly - Rob Reiner did not direct 'Say Anything', you are probably thinking
of 'The Sure Thing' (I say this because it was a similar *sort* of film with
John Cusack, but IMO much bettert).  Also, the girl in 'Say Anything' was
Ione Skye (Love that overbite, holy cow), who was also in 'River's Edge'.
The girl in Sure Thing was Daphne Zuniga.
