5.0 out of 5 stars Were you that little fat boy?, May 18, 2003
This review is from: One Crazy Summer (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.
