One Crazy Summer

Double Feature with RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (5:30, 9:30)

1986 • dir Savage Steve Holland w/John Cusack, Demi Moore, Joel Murray, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kristen Goelz, Tom Villard, Curtis Armstrong, Mark Metcalf, John Matuszak • 93 min • 35mm

Savage Steve Holland and John Cusack followed up their cult favorite Better Off Dead with this demented summer vacation romp. Cusack plays Hoops McCann a high school graduate and aspiring cartoonist who heads to Nantucket with his buddy George (Murray). On the way they meet a rock’n’roller on the run from a biker gang (Moore) and set out to help her save her grandparents’ home from foreclosure. With Holland’s manic, absurdist touch, ONE CRAZY SUMMER is an insane Frankenstein of a film – sewn together from bits of a traditional romantic comedy, a teen sex flick, Monty Python-esque non-sequitur bits, and an unhinged Bobcat Goldthwait performance into one totally unclassifiable whole.

Staff Pick: Erica, Brandon: “A fave ’80s romp, always on during my shift at the video store back in high school. ☀️🦖⛵️🏆”
