Cool and the Crazy ★ 1994 (R)

High school sweethearts Michael (Leto) and Roslyn (Silverstone) are now in a troubled marriage. Apparently dissatisfied by hubby's sexual performance, Roslyn decides to take a walk on the wide side with hoodlum Joey (Flint). Michael finds out and decides to have his own extramarital fling with a beatnik co-worker (it's set in the 50s). But there's even more trouble ahead. Rather than “cool” and “crazy,” it's amateurish and nonsensical. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Alicia Silverstone, Jared Leto, Jennifer Blanc, Matthew Flint, Bradford Tatum, Christina Harnos, Tuesday Knight; D: Ralph Bakshi; W: Ralph Bakshi; C: Roberto Schaefer; M: Hummie Mann. CABLE
