It’s not a movie. It’s a command.
It’s also a film that’s long overdue for a DVD release. Of course, a DVD release might devalue this eccentric title. Part of the joy in Hoochie Coochie Man makes the film doubly special.
Get Crazy is not a 10. It’s neither crazy enough or convoluted enough to really make the mark. It’s well made, full of smart laughs, and good music. There are plenty of off beat jokes, but it is still as if something is missing from the film, something that would make it a true classic, something that would cause someone to cough up the dough to get it on DVD. Perhaps, this lack of ‘something’ is what saves the film from being re-released thus making it a footnote – a film worth seeking out.
