May 20, 1990|Sheila Benson | Noteworthy films, with mini-reviews by Times critics

Say Anything (HBO Monday at 2 p.m., again at 11:45 p.m.; Thursday at 8 a.m., again at 5 p.m.; Saturday at 12:30 p.m., again at 10 p.m.): Cameron Crowe, writer of "Fast Times at Ridemont High," almost single-handedly revived the teen-age movie with a film of warmth, insight, humor and surprising originality. The 1989 film, which marked Crowe's directorial debut, isn't perfect, but it's a living joy whenever John Cusack is on the screen as a serious high school senior who dares to asks campus beauty Ione Skye (who also has a brain, thank you) to their graduation-night party.
