I saw this movie when it first came out,and had very fond memories of it,I remembered finding it one of the funniest,totally insane comedys I had ever seen.Question was when I got hold of this DVD,was would it live up to my memories of it,or would it have dated badly like so many films from that era.Well Im happy to say that it is as fresh and funny now as it was back then.

John Cusack and Demi Moore make an attractive on screen pairing,and carry the film along well,even makes you wish that Ms Moore had made more comedys,as she displays a few nice touches here and there,as for John Cusack,he is his usual likeable self.While the film offers you nothing new,it wraps everything up in a totally zany sence of humour.There is even a brilliant homage to the Godzilla movies of old,crowbared into the proceedings,for no other reason than the films makers wanted to include it.

I loved this film way back then,and I still do.If your a fan of comedys that are completely off their heads,then you could do a lot worse than this one.It was crazy then and its still as crazy now.And it gets even better,it may be a Region 1 disc,but it plays fine on any DVD player,Ive tried it on four just to make sure,and the picture quality is first rate.

I remember watching this film as a child with my dad and remember thinking how great it was going to be growing up!! Of course things never are how they are in the movies, but this film will always remind me of my childhood and the dreams I had.
I was aware even as a youngster that John Cusack was a great actor and I always enjoy watching the films he is in. There are a host of other good actors here as well, although I think Demi Moore was a little underused. That is her singing though!
Ultimately this is a movie about love and friendship, don't go looking for any deep meaning, just enjoy watching a movie made when the world made sense!

One Crazy Summer works (almost) as a follow up to the fabuluos "Better off Dead". John Cusak plays the 'nice guy' who only wants to help (presilicone) Demi More get a break in her music career, and protect the holiday location he qand his friends love, from an evil land developer and his obnoxious son. [there's a fabulous scene where, to win a boat race to win the land back from the evil developer, the gang hijack the son's farari and transfer the engine into a rotting old yacht]
Like "B.o.D" the director uses animation to allow J.C explain his subconscious, and the little guy (forget his name, but he was also in the Moonlighting series) from "B.o.D" polays his sidekick again.
A great little film, full of caring and developed characters, and a genius use of humour. Doesn't lose anything with time, and is well worth a look by anyone who loves Cusak's comedy work, or has seen "Better off Dead" and wishes there was something similar to enjoy.

One of the great goofy comedies 1 Aug. 2000
By Lee Gaiteri - Published on
Verified Purchase
One Crazy Summer is not a serious film; it's a comedy with a cartoonish style, but it's a wonderful example of what such an exaggeratedly wacky movie should be. Starting on the foundation of the basic 1980s screwball comedy, it transcends the other B movies of that genre with its characters and its own unique laugh-out-loud moments.
Bobcat Goldthwait in particular steals the show as Egg Stork, but he's still there to back up the main character Hoops McCann (John Cusack), whose own cartoon creations--the cute and fuzzy bunnies--are determined to thwart his quest to find love. The standard '80s comedy elements come into play with Cassandra (Demi Moore), who's trying to save her grandfather's house from a nasty stereotype villain who wants to build a lobster restaurant in its place. Everything seems to click pretty well in the movie; it doesn't have any dull spots and the humor stays pretty fresh even at a second and third viewing. It's become one of my perennial favorites.
There are some especially worthwhile moments, mostly due to Bobcat's wonderful zaniness. The Godzilla scene alone makes the movie memorable. The cartoons drawn by Cusack's character appear now and then to illustrate how his search for love is going; those cute and fuzzy bunnies are vicious.
Parents take note: This is family fare; feel free to watch it with your kids. There's nothing really objectionable in the movie, and Demi stays dressed for a change. It's plenty funny without being raunchy, which is fairly refreshing. If you like a good top-of-the-line goofy B movie as much as I do, One Crazy Summer belongs in your collection. I can't wait for it to appear on DVD.

4 star movie with 5 star appeal and fun 11 July 2000
By Alan R. Holyoak - Published on
This is the follow up movie by "Savage" Steve Holland to his 1985 movie -- "Better Off Dead." I have to admit that of the two, "Better Off Dead" is the one I like more, but "One Crazy Summer" certainly has it's moments.
In this film John Cusack plays a newly graduated HS student who never met his folks' expectations as a basketball player. All he really wants to do is to go to art school. In order to get a break from his folks he takes off with his buddy for a summer on Nantuckett. There he meets up with a young Demi Moore who is trying to find a way to save her granfather's home. Thus, the set-up.
Cusack is looking for love, but can never seem to find it. Teen trauma if ever there was one. With that all brewing in the background we meet a suite of characters who make the show flow along, and who provide lots and lots of comic relief.
You'll love the Stork twins and Ack-Ack, and you'll love to hate Teddy, an incredibly spoiled brat, and Teddy's equally detestable father.
It's a good-guy bad guy movie, almost a melodramatic comedy.
Scenes to watch for include: Godzilla invades the tea-party; Cusack at the drive-in with Cookie; and the yacht race.
There's a lot of silliness in this film, but it's great fun. A completely enjoyable experience! Pairing this film with "Better Off Dead" would make a great offering for a video party. They are fun and watchable!
4 star films, but with a 5 star punch.
Have fun!

Were you that little fat boy? 19 May 2003
By Robert J. Steele - Published on
Format: DVD
Holy cow, do I love this movie. "Look! The craziness!"
This is one of those movies that played endlessly on HBO, and I remembered it quite fondly. One day I threw it in the VCR and surprised myself by laughing almost nonstop through the whole thing.
Sure, it seems a cookie-cutter comedy from the eighties, and it is, but look! the craziness!
The brilliance of the movie is how it's situations keep slowly escalating into pure comic insanity. Sure everybody remembers Bobcat Goldthwait rampaging in a Godzilla costume, but the seeds for the scene were presented about fifteen minutes ago and there was an uninterrupted continuity that took us from there to here. This is pretty amazing for a "cookie-cutter" comedy.
Really, it's this sense of mayhem that keeps bringing me back to the movie. Mayhem. That's what I want out of comedies, and this is one of its epitomes. This and GREMLINS 2.
But who cares about that? This movie brings the funny. What more could you ask for? No thanks to all the cute and fuzzy bunnies in the world.

What happened to Savage Steve Holland? 25 Feb. 2003
By alastair taylor - Published on
Format: DVD
I enjoyed this film more than Better Off Dead. It has a peculiar logic not seen in John Hughes' teen comedies.John Cusak wallowing in his "artistic self misery" is taken to Nantucket island for a holiday. Here he meets the Stork twins (Bobcat Goldthwaite and his identical(?) 6'4" twin) and the evil supercilious A+ crowd. Scattered throughout a fairly predictable plot of coming-of-age wisdom and redemption are truly insane characters and moments. I could watch this film over and over savouring the loopy characters, animation breaks and the ridiculous situations - the mechanical giant dolphin with rabies, Ack Ack's power crazy scoutmaster Dad, Uncle listening to the radio waiting to win money and his final revenge and the dangerously unpredictable Stork twin Egg.Cusak is delightfully restrained and uncomfortable in these situations. Demi Moore is bland as a hippy folk singer.
This is a film that is more than a sum of its parts and if you think 16 candles was the best Hughes movie watch this picture. It's left field but it's worth it.

A hilarious and well-crafted story 27 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
"One Crazy Summer", staring John Cusack and Demi Moore, is one of the best movies to crawl out of the eighties. It is a thoughtful coming-of-age/romance story in which a high school graduate tries desparately to find his place in a seemingly loveless world. Don't let the comedy and the cheese fool you. This movie is seriously good.
