Cusack plays Lane Meyer, a nice guy who's just been dumped by his high school girlfriend Beth (Amanda Wyss). Dejected and misunderstood by his distracted family (Dad's at war with the paperboy, little brother is building a rocket with parts sent away from the backs of cereal boxes, Mom is from another planet), Lane tries to find a way back into Beth's heart. The answer? Make the school's ski team captained by her new boyfriend Roy Stalin (Aaron Dozier in his only feature film appearance) and learn to ski the K-12, the town's most dangerous slope. Lane begins a series of half-hearted suicide attempts and wallows in his misery until he meets Monique (Diane Franklin), the French foreign exchange student living with the creepy neighbors. With Monique's encouragement, Lane takes steps to improve himself, challenges Stalin to a race down the K-12 and begins taking language lessons. You The language of love.
