#60 - "One Crazy Summer" (1986) with Nicholas Pepin from the "Pop Culture Roulette" Podcast

#60 -

This 80’s flick is sometimes described as “Better Off Dead Goes To The Beach” because it reunites young leading man John Cusack with writer-director Savage Steve Holland for a tale of teenage angst and the quest to find love. This time the quest takes us to Nantucket where our lead gets involved with cute and fuzzy bunnies, snobby preppies, insane mechanics, a killer dolphin with rabies, and a hippie-ish singer about to lose her house to a very rich lobster restaurant magnate. So don’t miss the ferry and don’t forget to pay your tab for Granny’s dinner as Tim Williams and guest co-host Nicholas Pepin from "Pop Culture Roulette" Podcast discuss “One Crazy Summer” on this episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback podcast! Just like "One Crazy Summer" has no deleted scenes, we have no additional trivia from this episode.
