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) Strand

Critic Reviews for Crazy Eyes

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (12)

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.

July 6, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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

July 5, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Yes, it feels true. But why bother?

July 5, 2012 | Rating: 2/5

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

July 5, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The film seems to aim for a gritty and real depiction of a drug- and drink-fueled not-quite romance, but it's in fact just your worst fears about the kinds of people who populate L.A. brought to ugly, misogynistic and sometimes maudlin life.

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.
