Movie Info

Zach (Lukas Haas) seems to be living the Hollywood bachelor dream - he's got a house in the hills, the phone numbers for dozens of beautiful women and a hard-partying lifestyle aided and abetted by his bartender pal, Dan (Jake Busey). It seems nothing can tie down this divorcée father, until he meets "Crazy Eyes" (Madeline Zima) - the one woman he can't have. As the two embark on a love-crazed, booze-fueled relationship, Zach's family issues begin to take center-stage, questioning whether or not this partying lost boy can step up to the challenge and become a man. -- (C) Strandmore

Critic Reviews for Crazy Eyes

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

The resulting film has the integrity and the ugliness of the truth. It's not true because it's ugly; no, it's ugly because it's true.

There's no colorful Boschian absurdism here, only soulless banter and projectile vomit.

New York Post
Top Critic

One of those exercises in masculine self-pity and glib misogyny that frustrates because of its shortsightedness.

Yes, it feels true. But why bother?

New York Times
Top Critic

This slovenly, self-indulgent riff on Charles Bukowski-like fringe-livers has all of the naked harshness of Bukowski with none of the poetry.

Top Critic

Sherman's feature turns out to be enamored of the kind of reality that gets left out of movies not because it's provocative or controversial, but because it isn't particularly interesting.

Audience Reviews for Crazy Eyes


As unrewarding as the main character's sex life, "Crazy Eyes" is an attempt at being trendy and clever all while completely missing its mark. Repetitive and completely unbound from any sort of cohesion, the talented young cast of Luke Haas, Jake Busey, and the exceptionally sexy Madeline Zima are completely wasted in their weak, paper thin roles that do absolutely nothing for them, both in the Indie world and in their long futures ahead.

Christopher Haskell

Super Reviewer

Super frustrating, but undeniably interesting, with a very good performance from Lukas Haas. While I think the film has been savaged a little too unfairly by the critics, I agree that there is a repetitive nature that begins to wear thin around the 45 minute mark.
