Years later, it's much easier to appreciate this cast of then-unknowns which would develop into superstars.

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.

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.

The anarchic saga could have used more bite or the hint of a threat just to keep things interesting.

There should have been enough material here for six sitcoms. Instead, there's not even enough for one movie.
