The friends Crazy Summer begins when they pickup Cassandra on the way–she’s being chased by a motorcycle gang. From here on in, it only gets crazier. Once on the island, Hoops and George, along with George’s island friends the Stork twins and Ack-Ack (son of a marine), must help Cassandra save her grandfather’s house from the greedy Beckersted Family. Along the way, Hoops must find a way to write his cartoon love story – and maybe a real one of his own.

One Crazy Comedy
I cannot say enough good things about this movie. From the warped mind of Savage Steve Holland comes this superior laughfest. First, I have to say that I haven’t seen many movies that start out with a David Lee Roth tune. This could be a good or bad thing. The main character is John Cusack’s character, who calls himself Hoops. Which is a total oxymoron if you have seen his basketball skills in the movie. This movie is all about leaving your troubles behind and getting away for the summer to Nantucket. Hoops is afraid of boats, but has no choice when his friend George launches his clunker onto the ferry at the last minute. He shacks up with future love interest Demi Moore, the worst actress in history. But she is pretty young and 80’s looking in this one. They finally hit mainland and meet a whole host of odd characters. Of these is Bobcat Golthwait and Dudley Dawson, from the Revenge of the Nerd flicks. Hoops is still practicing his drawing and falling head over heels for a debutante named Cookie. But Cookie has a muscle bound rich preppy ass boyfriend named Teddy. And he has it out for Hoops and co. As the plot thickens, Demi’s character is about to lose her grandfathers house to the bank, so they decide to plan a benefit at a local dive. You can just imagine Demi lipsyncing. She ends up with plenty of money, but the bank has already sold the mortgage to the house. The movie comes to a happy ending via boat race on the lovely waters of Nantucket. Cusack and co. build a riff raff boat and blow everyone out of the water, despite some unfair play along the way. So they get the trophy, house, and Cusack ends up in a liplock with Demi. Despite the cheesey story, there are some really funny moments in this one. Some of my personal favorites are: the guy getting stabbed during the hat toss at graduation, Uncle Frank getting launched out of the bathroom window, and Bobcat getting stuck in a Godzilla costume. Also expect cameos from Rich Hall, Rich Little, and Taylor Negron. I rate this movie 4/5 for the great comic moments and the fact that I grew up watching this one. Very hard to find on dvd, and am not sure on bonus footage, but this is a comedy classic. But I think Better off Dead is equal or a little less funnier. Both have their moments. And this was way before Cusack ruined his career doing Pushing Tin.
Teen comedy on Nantucket Island with young John Cusack and Demi Moore
Released in 1986, “One Crazy Summer” stars John Cusack as a wannabe cartoonist/writer who is invited to vacation on Nantucket Island (Massachusetts) with a friend. A string of misadventures begin after they pick-up a free-spirited hitchhiker (Demi Moore) who’s being chased by a motorcycle gang. They and their friends must help Cassandra (Demi) save her grandfather’s house from the greedy Beckersted Family.
There’s just enough good in this quirky youth misadventure to give it a thumbs up. It’s zany and creative, highlighted by Demi in one of her early roles. She was 22 during filming and looks great, but she unfortunately wears big, loose clothing throughout, which conceals her physical beauty. No matter, there are a few curvy cuties in peripheral roles, most notably Kimberly Foster as cookie. The Godzilla parody is great.
The movie runs 93 minutes and was shot in Nantucket and Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
