Well, if nothing else, at least he'll always have the Whammy to his name.

One Crazy Summer is okay, but a lot less funny than Better off Dead. The cartoon sequences are great and there are some funny absurd jokes, but the retarded twins are just embarrasing, and Cusack doesn't seem to give a lot about his part. He was a lot funnier in Better off Dead and The Sure Thing. I heard he hated Better off Dead, so that could have something to do with it.

I didn't really like this movie either. My friend and I want to make a date to watch Better Off Dead and some other classics. She really wants to watch BOD soon.

i really like this movie, i wish i could spend a summer in nantucket like that.

george calmari, (joel murray) was great in this as well lots of funny lines, he should have been in alot more in my opinion.

in fact, how can like better off dead and not like this one? they are both equally great.

Wow, I did not know so many people disliked One Crazy Summer. It is one of the few comedies that I can watch repeatedly and always laugh hard. Both this and Better Off Dead are my two favorite Cusack movies because of the wacky humor and crazy characters. I can't think of one setpiece or scene that stands out in my memory, but there are many from OCS:

Egg Stork crashing the dinner party while he's in the Godzilla suit

Uncle Frank finally being the right caller for the radio contest, only to pull the plug to his phone out of the wall by accident and sending a missile to the radio DJ's house.

Pretty much all the animated sequences with the rhino, Cupid, and fuzzy bunnies.

Every time someone insults Squid's dog Boscoe and gets their comeuppance (the two little girls' faces freezing or the gas station attendant's tie getting caught in the car window)

George Calamari getting buried up to his neck in the sand under a chair when a fat guy comes to sit on it while eating a hot dog and chili beans.

I hope you enjoy it, Muffy! It is one of those rare comedies that gets funnier upon every viewing and never loses its impact.
