Our Score
A dumb heavy metal band finds fame by hijacking a local radio station in director Michael Lehmann's broad Wayne's World-style comedy that lacks the goofy cleverness of the blockbuster hit. The Mummy's Brendan Fraser ably heads the head-banging brigade, with amusing support from dim-witted Adam Sandler and long-haired Steve Buscemi, exchanging Bill and Ted-like ripostes over the airwaves. Never quite as funny as it thinks it is - it needs the lighter touch Lehmann showed in Heathers - the amiable anarchy does sometimes hit the screwball spot thanks to a handful of great one-liners and a deft turn from Michael Richards (Kramer in TV's Seinfeld).

Summary

Frustrated heavy metal band the Lone Rangers are determined to get air time for their new record and take a radio station hostage to ensure it happens. Comedy, starring Steve Buscemi, Brendan Fraser, Adam Sandler and Michael McKean.
