Bring Back Savage Steve Holland

In the eighties, Savage Steve Holland put out three movies, two of which are classics of what seems to be a very small genre, absurdist teen comedies. The third "How I Got Into College" does not measure up to "Better Off Dead" and this one, mainly because of it's lack of John Cusack and Curtis Armstrong (Except for a tiny cameo).

One Crazy Summer is an underrated movie, with lots of great characterizations and gags. As I recall, Savage Steve's movies were vilified as being brain dead at the time and after three movies he drifted into children's TV. We could use more movies from the likes of him.

"Saturday Night at the local..."

Thus starts "One Crazy Summer", the evil twin of "Better off dead..". How can any movie be bad when the opening lines are sung by David Lee Roth?

This movie is a total blast. Pairing again John Cusack with Curtis Armstrong, but this time adding Bobcat Goldwaith to the mix has great, funny results. Hyperactive Bobcat grates the nerve of everyone around, Curtis "Ak Ak" is the son of a deranged military with pacifist tendencies, and Demi Moore (with natural breasts... wow!) as the love interest of, once again, chronically depressed Cusack.

The story is, well, simple enough. The laughs are there, but both Savage Steve Holland films have a certain quality to them... they are funny, but they are also sweet. The scene where Curtis finds a blown up doll in the target practice beach, and begins musing about how a little girl won't be able to sleep was dumb, funny and touching. The animation used throughout is quite surreal. "The Boat" is hysterical (complete with Watsamatta U. sail and Odie plush doll). Overall, a fun film, though not as good as "Better off dead..."

Dumb little comedy romance with some animation thrown in...

1st watched 3/8/2011 -- 4 out of 10(Dir-Savage Steve Holland): Dumb little comedy romance with some animation thrown in has a couple of funny moments but the overall silly David vs. Goliath plot line where the weaker hero-type fights against a snot-nosed rich guy over his dignity is old and part of too many movies. The movie starts as a couple of high school graduates, played by John Cusack and Curtis Armstrong, decide to spend their summer at Nantucket Island looking for fun and a break away from their normal life before they have to make any longterm decisions. Demi Moore, plays the obvious eventual love interest to the main character, Hoops(who is named this despite the fact that he can't play basketball very well -- it was a parental hope). Instead Hoops is trying to get into Art school and trying to create a project to enter(this is the drawings we see throughout the movie). What happens is the movie presents us with a series of crazy characters and events making an overall crazy summer(thus the title). The crazy characters include an uncle who locked himself up in a room hoping to win a radio show millionaire contest, Bobcat Goldthwait -- playing one of the twins, who has one of the funnier scenes where he trounces around as godzilla recreating a scene from one of the monster's movies where he destroys a fake town with him screaming and smoke coming out his nostrils, and a young girl with a deformed dog where she puts a spell on anyone that laughs or says bad things about it. The gags are not the problem and are plentiful, and sometimes funny but the commonplace storyline with cardboard comedy-movie characters that are not developed is what holds this movie back. Overall this movie is really not that unique or funny despite it's attempts at being just that.
