One Crazy Summer Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this madcap comedy, [[Performer~P103370~Demi Moore~demimoore]] plays Cassandra and [[Performer~P16329~John Cusack~johncusack]] is Hoops McCann, two people who eventually fall in love and help each other out. Hoops is a cartoonist working on a teen love story that he hopes will get him accepted into art school. Cassandra is a troubled young woman about to lose her home to a money-hungry developer. Characters with names like Squid Calamari, Clay Stork, or Ack Ack Raymond are involved in the unfolding romance and figure in several slapstick routines. Several cartoon sequences are inserted throughout this comedy to comment on the story. This was director [[Performer~P94676~Savage Steve Holland~savagesteveholland]]'s second feature-length film. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
