laugh too much

on 4/12/2013

A little corny, but I liked it, especially with the choice of stars. Brendan Fraser can always inspire a laugh, but his portrayal of a desperate rock star is great. He only wants to get his song played on the radio, but things quickly starts get out of hand. Read More

Editors Note
Note Chazz (Brendan Fraser), Pip (Adam Sandler), and Rex (Steve Buscemi) are the Lone Rangers, a heavy metal rock group that's going nowhere fast. Tired of playing lame gigs and trying to win over record executives, the band heads to its local radio station in a desperate attempt to have its demo played. Unfortunately, things go awry when toy guns are pulled out and mistaken for real ones in the heat of the moment, forcing the band to hold the station's employees hostage. Surrounded by the police and thousands of rock & roll fans who have flocked to the station, the boys become unlikely heroes, a voice for those who choose not to conform to corporate America. A little lighter than Michael Lehmann's dark comedy directorial debut HEATHERS, this film offers plenty of physical comedy from Michael Richards and Chris Farley as well as humorous performances from the boys in the band, Michael McKean as the station manager, and Joe Mantegna as DJ Ian the Shark. Live performances by White Zombie and the Galactic Cowboys set the tone for the film, which also boasts an impressive soundtrack.
Plot Summary
Summary The Lone Rangers (Brendan Fraser, Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi), a group of toy-pistol-toting heavy metal musicians, are typical generation Xers: They've got tons of ambition but even more professional malaise. Tired of being rejected by record labels and talent scouts, the Lone Rangers decide to stage a career coup: take over rock radio station KPPX and play their demo for the masses. Who knows--this might be the best way to break into the business.
Rolling Stone "...Laugh licks and spirited performances..." 08/25/1994
Sight and Sound "...An enjoyable, sweet-natured farce....The characters are funny and likeable..." 11/01/1994 p.39
USA Today "...AIRHEADS is spiked with in-jokes and appealing performances....There's a perfect out-there moment that will strike a feedback-warped chord with diehard heavy-metal fans..." 08/05/1994 p.4D
