COOL AND THE CRAZY (DIDIER BECU)
24 March 2004 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

One of the first movies that had Alicia Silverstone in it and it was certainly not the reason why I was watching, why should I care about one of the most overrated actresses ever? But it stuck me though that for once Madame Silverstone played a normal role (Completely fed up with her Beverly Hills-characters. The story itself couldn't be any simplier as after all it's about two young people who are married and who are facing up the useless relationshipproblems and if you add some 50's atmosphere in it (the Cadillacs, brillantine, smoothy jazzmusic) you quickly have some movie but it's just because of it's sober approach (even if that'd be more moneywise) "The cool and the crazy" is rather watchable. Mind you, you'll soon forget it but stay on the screen for 90 minutes nonetheless.
