One Crazy Summer

One Crazy Summer

This is an outrageous film, in the league of Mel Brooks and the Zucker Bros. John Cusack portrays a young outcast, who spends a bizarre summer on Nantucket Island with his friends, who are also social outcasts. Among them are the hilariously inept Stork twins (Bobcat Goldthwait and Tom Villard) and the boy scout Ack-Ack (Curtis Armstrong). While on his summer vacation, Cusack falls in love with a rock musician (Demi Moore) and gets in trouble with the island bullies. But that's just the beginning of the story.

This is one of those films that has to be seen to be believed. Plenty of good sight gags and some honestly decent performances by Cusack and Moore help you overlook some of the faults in the script. The climax is a little bit too stupid, even for this film. Though I gotta tell you, you must take a look at Goldthwait's over-the-top performance. It's a riot!

My Rating = Three Stars
