Get Crazy

1983 / 92min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ALLAN ARKUSH

CAST: ALLEN GARFIELD, ED BEGLEY JR.

Concert promoter Max Wolfe (Allen Garfield) has been laid low by a heart attack, and the lease for his beloved Saturn Theatre is on the line, with the uncertain success of a huge, last-ditch effort New Year’s Eve bash organized by employees the only hope of saving the Saturn from unscrupulous rival Ed Begley Jr. and the wrecking ball. You might think you’ve heard this tune before, but you’ve never heard it the way Get Crazy plays it: balls-to-the-wall and utterly batty, a resounding celebration of music, dope, and dumb, dirty laffs with a guest list that includes Lou Reed, Mary Woronov, Lori Eastside of Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and Malcolm McDowell doing his best Mick Jagger burlesque.
