Chester "Chazz" Darvey (Fraser), Rex (Buscemi), and Pip (Sandler) are three friends in a band who live and work in Los Angeles. Rex and Pip are brothers. At the beginning of the movie, we see how far Chazz, Rex, and Pip are going in life. Chazz lives with his girlfriend Kayla in a small apartment and gets kicked out at the beginning of the movie. Rex works at a toy store. Pip has his own pool service. Their band is The Lone Rangers. Recently, they just recorded their first demo, which they have on both a tape and on a cassette, and they are trying to get their demo played on the radio. So one day, Chazz, Rex, and Pip go to a radio station in downtown L.A., and after breaking into the station, they meet a radio disc jockey named Ian. After an argument with both the DJ and the program director, Chazz, Rex, and Pip take the radio station hostage. And once Chazz, Rex, and Pip have the station held hostage, funny, surprising, shocking, and hilarious events occur.
"Airheads" is definitely one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Every single second of this movie is funny, and all of the actors give great performances. My favorite character would have to be Pip, becuase he is the stupid one out of the gang, and while he is nice to the hostages (at one part of this movie, Rex has to take him in private and train him a little bit so he will appear as tough) out of all the dumb decisions made by characters during this movie, he makes the dumbest decision (wait till you see what that is). So check out "Airheads". You'll die of laughter.
I will admit that some critics do need to lighten up though. Airheads according to Rotten Tomatoes only received approval from 23% of the critics who reviewed it. Now, while the film didn't do quite well at the box office, it has become a bit of a cult hit in the years since. Public opinion shouldn't sway a critic's analysis of a film, but a critic should analyze film based on whether the film accomplishes what it intends to. Of the critics who did approve of the film, I think Peter Travers would agree with me that this film does.
The Lone Rangers, a hard rock/ metal band comprised of Chazz (Brendan Frasier), Rex (Steve Buscemi), and Pip (Adam Sandler), just want a record deal. Chazz tries to solicit a record exec (Judd Nelson) to listen to their demo tape, but to no avail. Finding out that another local band got signed by having their tracks played on the local radio station they try to get local DJ Ian (Joe Mantegna) to play their demo on the air. But when Rex is insulted by station manager Milo Jackson (Michael McKean), they take the station hostage with water guns filled with hot sauce to get their track played.
Is Airheads a perfect movie? Of course not; not by any stretch of the imagination, but that doesn't mean it's not fun.Read more ›
In this epic, 3 bandmates have no career motivation whatsoever except to make it big in the record industry. Their half baked plans to get the record people to listen to their demo tape backfire. What's a band to do now? Why, take a popular station hostage, of course!
Armed with toy guns loaded with pepper sauce, the 3 guys bust into (well sorta) the station and demand that the guy plays the tape. Only one problem. The quarter inch tape player(think old time projectors) just destroyed their copy! The lead singer's ex girlfriend has the other copy, and they have to get her to bring it to the station.
Starring Brendan Frasier and Adam Sandler, this movie will not dissapoint. For anyone who likes movies about garage bands, and people that are in bands, then this movie is for you! This also stars the guy who does Fat Tony's voice on the Simpsons as the radio DJ.
