One person who doesn't like the film is Cusack. He reportedly walked out of the first screening and blasted director "Savage" Steve Holland for "making him look foolish." Cusack did seem to soften his stance on 'Better Off' during a recent Reddit AMA, saying he thought the film "could have been better" but that he's "glad people still love it."
