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!
Did You Know?
According to Savage Steve Holland
, he and John Cusack
did not get along during filming. Cusack was disappointed with their previous collaboration, Better Off Dead...
(1985) and was angry with Holland. According to Holland, Cusack lightened up after that film got good reviews. But Cusack never spoke to Holland again. See more
When George is buried in the sand it's early afternoon, when Hoops helps Cookie put her boat in the water the sun is setting, but when the group goes back for George it appears to be early afternoon again. See more
Will you watch where you're going! We're heading for the docks!
We've gotta make the boat!
Boat? What boat?
What, did you think we were driving to Nantucket? Come on, it's an island!
You never mentioned any boats! I hate boats! I'm not getting on any boat!
I beg to differ!
The film-makers wish to thank the Massachusetts Film Bureau and the people of Cape Cod and Nantucket who survived ONE CRAZY SUMMER. See more
