Film #80: One Crazy Summer (1986)

Plot - Sophomoric fun. Wacky things happen just to make you laugh, and that's a good thing.

Form - Very utilitarian, usually in a good way.

F/X - A really cool Godzilla outfit is used.

Acting - Bobcat Goldwaith should annoy me, but he's kind of cool. Like Better off Dead, Cusack is a good straight man amidst the zany.

Mise en scene - Pretty cool, with plenty of slimy sets that bring out the film's totally alternative attitude.

Quotables - Yeah!

Cool stuff - Tons. Evidently this was also written and directed by the guy who wrote and directed Better off Dead, but I like this film more.
