Here's a trailer for George Armitage's 1997 film Grosse Point Blank. Armitage is a bit of a one-hit wonder, but this film is great nonetheless. I would say that it's underrated, but it got fairly good reviews so calling it underappreciated would be more accurate. Cusack and Aykroyd are both at their best and the soundtrack is one of the best compilations you're likely to find. Here's a description:
Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
