Film #19: Airheads (1994)

Plot - Some guys in a band inadvertently take a radio station hostage while trying to get their demo on the air. Carnage ensues. Except not really in any fun sort of way.

Form -  None.

F/X - No.

Acting - An all star cast, featuring Brendan Fraser, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Steve Buscemi, the black Ghostbuster, and a bunch of other famous people I can't remember the name of. It's at least fun to see all these '90s guys together, although it's the only real reason they played it on Comedy Central every ten minutes back in the early 2000s. Beavis and Butthead make a guest appearance.

Mise en scene - David Arquette's office has a KMFDM sticker in it. So '90s.

Quotables - Nope.

Cool stuff - Some cool stuff probably happens, but it's largely unmemorable. All the characters are goofy stereotypes, predictable in every way. Also, it's lame that the band's song is just a Reagan Youth cover.
