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

They're out of school, out on Nantucket, and out of their minds. With this crowd, anything can happen!

When Cassandra gives Hoops the hand-out promoting her show while walking on the beach, the paper says Sunday, August 1st. Later, the publicity that Hoops creates promoting the show says the show is on Sunday, July 6th (visible when Ted removes the paper from the arrow his dad shoots towards him with the crossbow). The only time August 1st fell on a Sunday in the '80s was 1982, but July 6th did in fact fall on a Sunday in 1986, the year the movie was released. See more
