NEW YORK, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. film star John Cusack says he is happy people still love his classic teen romance "Say Anything" two decades after he made it.

A 20th anniversary edition DVD version of the movie, co-starring Ione Skye, Lili Taylor, Jeremy Piven and Joan Cusack, was released this week.

"I have great fondness for it," John Cusack told UPI in New York Thursday. "It was a great collaboration with (writer-director) Cameron Crowe and I was really proud of the movie, so it's really nice that people are still remembering it this many years later. I'm always kind of delighted that people still like it."

Told there were groups of guys marauding around Manhattan this week dressed as his character Lloyd Dobler -- complete with his trademark trench coat and boom box -- to celebrate the release of the "Say Anything" DVD, Cusack cringed and quipped, "I thought that was just on Halloween, no?"

The actor will be seen next week playing a nice-guy novelist trying to save his family during a global catastrophe in "2012."
