With a name like Hoops McCann, he's bound to get that basketball scholarship after high school, right? Wrong! What Hoops really wants to do is write and illustrate a love story. To help him find his way, his friend George invites Hoops to come with him and his sister to spend the summer on Nantucket. The friends Crazy Summer begins when they pickup Cassandra on the way--she's being chased by a motorcycle gang. From here on in, it only gets crazier. Once on the island, Hoops and George, along with George's island friends the Stork twins and Ack-Ack (son of a marine), must help Cassandra save her grandfather's house from the greedy Beckersted Family. Along the way, Hoops must find a way to write his cartoon love story - and maybe a real one of his own. Written by

When Egg puts on the head of the Godzilla costumer he makes a motion as to zip on the head. A zipper sound is also heard. It is obvious there are no zippers, and when the head is later removed George and Hoops do not unzip the costume head. See more

No! No! But I used to beat the shit out him! "Why are you so fat? Why are so ugly?" Aaagghh!

Great story, thanks.
The film begins with the Warner Brothers logo, which then morphs into a cartoon version. The WB logo opens up like a pair of doors to reveal a cackling cartoon character. Zoom in on his huge mouth to reveal the words ONE CRAZY SUMMER. See more
