One Crazy Summer
They're out of school, out on Nantucket, and out of their minds. With this crowd, anything can happen!
An aspiring teenage cartoonist and his friends come to the aid of a singer trying to save her family property from developers.
The worst movie ever made. But still worth a watch.
Think of writer-director Savage Steve Holland’s 1986 John Cusack summer classic as the companion piece to his own 1985 John Cusack winter classic “Better Off Dead”. Both feature The Cusack as an angsty cartoonist fraught with challenges of the heart, exacerbated by the challenges of the trademark sport of the particular season he’s in (boat racing in One Crazy Summer, skiing in Better Off Dead), with surreal comedic situations abound. And if there’s one thing I love more than 80’s slasher flicks, it’s 80’s John Cusack movies. Which makes me really wish somebody had combined the two when they had the chance.
It’s hard to put my finger on it in a scientific way, but something about Cusack just sets…
I really like 80's teen comedies. But this film is so stupid it's not even funny.
One of my favorite kid summer movies, pardon the seasonal connection (but it was a mainstay on HBO from may to August in the 80's). Bonus: he DVD commentary with Bobcat is candidly funny and very candid.
