One Crazy Summer
In this madcap comedy, Demi Moore plays Cassandra and John Cusack is Hoops McCann, two people who eventually fall in love and help each other out. Hoops is a cartoonist working on a teen love story that he hopes will get him accepted into art school. Cassandra is a troubled young woman about to lose her home to a money-hungry developer. Characters with names like Squid Calamari, Clay Stork, or Ack Ack Raymond are involved in the unfolding romance and figure in several slapstick routines. Several cartoon sequences are inserted throughout this comedy to comment on the story. This was director Savage Steve Holland's second feature-length film. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Good But Not Great


    Savage Steve Holland's second feature film is not quite up to par with his impressive and charming first movie titled 'Better Off Dead' (which happens to be one of my all-time favorites). Apparently, there was some distress on the set of 'One Crazy Summer' in regards to the relationship of actor John Cusack and Holland, as Cusack was apparently very unhappy with the final product of 'Better Off Dead.' Well, whatever the reasons are, Cusack doesn't shine in this film, as he did in the previous one, and it hurts the picture. Still, there are some great moments in this movie and the cast is exceptional. Recommended.

    Good for what it is.


    This is a good film, but Better Off Dead is a better one that is in the same intentionally corny style. If you have not seen Better Off Dead, I would suggest you get that first. If you have seen it and really liked it, then you should certainly get this movie too. The movie does have it's funny parts and certainly gives a nostalgic feel even if you've never seen it before because of it's ridiculously corny style.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Great Summer Movie


    This movie did not win any Academy Awards. It does have a bunch of stars before they were stars, see This is just a simple funny movie that the whole family can watch. Little disappointed there were no dvd extras, but this movie came out way before dvd.
