Despite some rough intertwining, Crazy is an impressive directing debut from Banderas.

Stylistically uneven.
January 1, 2000
Because the civil rights sections are somber and serious and the Lucille sections exaggerated and giddy, Crazy in Alabama never finds any cohesive tone.

Griffith's performance is daffy and endearing, but the twisted comedy of her half of the tale eventually drives the movie right off the rails.

Mr. Banderas fills his movie with lots of overbearingly stylized imagery. The results are something like a big-budget student film.

Connecting Lucille's actions with the boy's in a way that makes sense is a challenge that first-time director Antonio Banderas and screenwriter Mark Childress fail to meet.
January 1, 2000
Of course, it's probably foolhardy to expect logic or realism from a movie with the word 'crazy' in the title.

Crazy in Alabama is an ungainly fit of three stories that have no business being shoehorned into the same movie.

Too many scenes feel excessively underscored, either by Mark Snow's sentimental music, or by characters commenting on the action.
