Everyone in the film has simply been better and funnier, before. Even Fraser.
Airheads commits the cardinal sin of satire: it's not sure what it's making fun of.
| Original Score: 1/4
The anarchic saga could have used more bite or the hint of a threat just to keep things interesting.
Violence passes for comedy, and poor music passes for nothing.
About airheads, and for them, too.
A bit of a mess, but one of Steve Buscemi's best performances before hitting the big time.
| Original Score: 3/5
There should have been enough material here for six sitcoms. Instead, there's not even enough for one movie.
Years later, it's much easier to appreciate this cast of then-unknowns which would develop into superstars.
| Original Score: 4/5
"keeps threatening to be funny, but rarely scores"
| Original Score: 1/5
It's pretty annoying when you cast a bunch of funny people in a movie that turns out this devoid of chuckles.
| Original Score: 2/5
I wouldn't advise you to rush out to see it, but if you like rock and roll, independent musicians, or Sandler, you might want to check it out.
| Original Score: 60/100
Fraser and Buscemi are deadpan delights. And Sandler, Opera Man on SNL, is a red-hot screen find.
A spoof of heavy-metal culture that at the same time respects the vitality and pent-up passion behind it.
Observing how fertile the field of heavy metal music is for satire, it's disappointing to watch Airheads bumble around, desperately trying to find something funny to say.
| Original Score: 2/4
Even Beavis and Butt-head get to call in their critique. Naturally, they think the Lone Rangers suck.
It does have its moments, but I felt very ripped off that they were all shown in the trailer.
| Original Score: 2/5
Consider yourself warned: this is another case where every funny line is in the trailer.
| Original Score: 4/10
Lehmann can't seem to make up his mind if this is an outright comedy or a social satire along the line of This is Spinal Tap, which, naturally, results in virtually nothing.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
This film will...be quickly forgotten by anyone unfortunate enough to sit through it.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
On the whole, Airheads is heavily entertaining.
