In this madcap comedy, Demi Moore plays Cassandra and John Cusack 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 Savage Steve Holland's second feature-length film. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
Savage Steve Holland released two great movies in the 80's "Better Off dead" and "One Crazy Summer" Both are timeless and very funny. Bobact Goldthwait in the Godzilla costume is priceless, Cusack delivers as usual, Armstrong is as funny as Ack Ack and Demi Moore make this film great. Armstrong and Cusack were both in Better Off Dead, pretty much more of the same humor here. Watch this film and laugh. Then throw Better Off Dead in the queue. You won't be sorry!
