A great movie with a great cast especially Stephen Dunn and Gail Edwards
7 July 2003 | by fightclubjSee all my reviews

"Get Crazy" is one of the best movies around. When watching the movie the viewer should take notice of the actor with the big hair and beard. His name is Stephen Dunn and he actually is one of the hero's of the movie. Without giving too much away, let's just say he helps to get rid of the bomb. He doesn't have a single line in the movie but his presence is unforgettable. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes wild movies. The very beautiful Gail Edwards is also one of the stars of the movie.
