Airheads

5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
Rightly despairing of ever landing a record deal, Los Angeles rockers The Lone Rangers infiltrate their favourite radio station with a demo tape and water pistols. Matters get out of control, and before they know it, Chazz (Fraser), Rex (Buscemi) and Pip (Sandler) are holding the entire station hostage, live on KPPX. The exposition is such a drag, it seems impossible that the movie won't improve once the hostage situation develops. But despite the presence of such worthies as Mantegna as a disillusioned DJ and McKean as the unctuous station manager, it never does. About airheads, and for them, too.

Made in 1994, this film was one of the first big hits for Brendan FraserSteve Buscemi and Adam Sandler. Starring as the three band mates in 'The Lone Rangers' the hapless trio take over a radio station at gun (well water pistol) point in order to get their demo tape played. 


Expect a lot of laughs, lots of silly moments and a great song at the end. Degeneration!
