Trivia

Although a VHS edition was released in the 1980s, no DVD has ever been released of Get Crazy (1983). Nor is this likely to be rectified due to the complicated music rights. See more »

Goofs

When Auden walks straight out into the street, one car barely misses him and two more (blue car and the same orange car that Nada and her band arrive at the theatre in) skid to one side and almost crash. In the next shot, the blue car is still there, but the orange car (which should have been blocked in by the blue car) is gone. See more »

Malcolm MacDowell is AWESOME!
14 August 2002 | by (Augusta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Malcolm MacDowell is an incredible actor with cohones of steel. Just seeing him take the risk of playing an aging hard-rocker and actually singing is just unbelievable. Playing off Daniel Stern with the line from Blue Thunder "Catch you later" with the forefinger pointed like a gun was just too cool.

Electric Larry was too much like people I went to high school with. I died watching this film.
