Mama We’re All Crazy Now

Crazy Mama has pretty much the same plot as Big Bad Mama (impoverished family “sticks it to The Man”) but its setting is quickly shifted from the Great Depression to the 50’s…which means alot of cool cars and rockin’ tunes. The tone is even more comedic than Big Bad Mama…you need only to look at the cast (Cloris Leachman, Ann Sothern, Jim Backus, Donny “Ralph Malph” Most) to know that it’s gonna be funny as hell. And I don’t need to tell you that Johnathan Demme is a great director, that’s obvious…but I love the fact that he’s never ashamed to let his drive-in roots show, no matter how many Oscars he has on his mantel…
