Crazy and Hyper!
18 April 2001 | by cmaicke007See all my reviews

After watching this movie once, I rewinded it twice and fast forwarded to the parts that John Glover appeared. I must admit, despite the wacko storyline and the big-eyed, naive portrayal of the gold-digging wife, it was Mr. Glover's performance that I found compelling. As always, he was alive, flamboyant, exciting, and alluring. He's one of those actors that a director must work hard to keep in check. Such life there! Check him out in Gremlins2 and Hollowheads to see more of this exciting and talented actor!
