Get Crazy Reviews
A parody of rockers of the time and those before, this film is on steroids. For the slapstick and dialog it is somewhat funny, even though we know its all in good fun. The director based this extravagent chaotic event on his job as a lighting employee at the famous 60's rock palace Fillmore East.
Max, the small time owner of The Saturn, feels for the customer and is holding a fan appreciation 15th anniversary party... supposedly likened to the real and very famous Bill Graham, rock promoter. He is threatened with losing his beloved nightspot.
While this film seems to have its many over the top fans, it really borders on only tolerable, if that. [Watch for now older Fabian and Bobby Sherman, ex-teeny bopper singers themselves. They are the assistants to villain, mega-promotor Mr. Beverley.]
The story is that mega-promoter Mr. Beverley plans to sabotage the New Year's 1983 concert of small-time operator Max Wolfe. Stars Malcolm McDowell, Allen Garfield and Daniel Stern.
