Quotes

Lorraine: So, how's it going over in Burbank with you guys?
Michael: Well, it got real exciting one night - Sullivan had Presley on. It could be worse... I guess.
Lorraine: Well, Michael, hardly any of my friends - probably none -were married at 18 and had a kid at 19. That's got to be hard.
Michael: You live with those sick beatniks in Venice. Most of my friends who grew up with me are married. That's how we all became men.
Lorraine: We're not sick. We're just horny.
Michael: Well, maybe I'll come and visit you one day... if you promise me that you ...

"90210" meets "Rebel Without a Cause"
24 August 2001 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

I never saw "Beverly Hills 90210," but I did see "Rebel Without a Cause". It's possible that this film could be a hybrid of both with its "who's going to sack up with whom" dramatics, as well as the occasional flashes of gang violence and car chases. This story, however, is set in the '50s.

Alicia Silverstone and Jared Leto were high-school-sweethearts-turned-young marrieds-with-an-unplanned-child couple who struggle to find themselves amid a marriage gone sour. Alicia is cheating on Jared with bad-boy Joey (Matthew Flint, in a loud, obnoxious performance), so Jared decides to get even.

The film's jazz soundtrack adds some ambience to the film, and the seedy look of L.A. during the fifties is OK, but on the whole, "The Cool and the Crazy" is mainly for fans of the stars. Ralph Bakshi might want to stick to his cartoons from now on...
