Story

A struggling metal trio decide to take drastic actions to insure that the masses and record labels hear their music in Airheads.  They take a radio station hostage, and in so doing they discover that the hugely popular metal station will be changed to an easy listening format.  Oh, the horrors.  This one is slightly more realistic than Madison.  Metal guys are friggin nutz, and have done some strange things criminal acts or otherwise.

Story = 14

Cast

Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Michael McKean, Judd Nelson, David Arquette, Michael Richards, and Joe Mantegna.  Not too shabby.  Steve Buscemi is awesome.

Cast = 20

Soundtrack/Score

I am not a big metal fan, but Primus is on this album.  Primus sucks so much that this soundtrack rocks.  According to IMDB, there is a crapload of Irving Berlin thrown in here too.  Bonus.

Soundtrack/Score = 20

Quote/Catch Phrase

“This thing smells like piss man!”

Rewatchability

Ok, this isn’t a Sandler film in that he is not the lead, but he does play a substantial role, and the movie is definitely better than Billy Madison.  That said, it’s only an ok comedy.

Rewatchability = 14

Total Score = 82

That works.
