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.

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.

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.

"keeps threatening to be funny, but rarely scores"

It's pretty annoying when you cast a bunch of funny people in a movie that turns out this devoid of chuckles.

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.

Fraser and Buscemi are deadpan delights. And Sandler, Opera Man on SNL, is a red-hot screen find.

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.

Even Beavis and Butt-head get to call in their critique. Naturally, they think the Lone Rangers suck.

On the whole, Airheads is heavily entertaining.

It does have its moments, but I felt very ripped off that they were all shown in the trailer.

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.

This film quickly forgotten by anyone unfortunate enough to sit through it.

A spoof of heavy-metal culture that at the same time respects the vitality and pent-up passion behind it.

Consider yourself warned: this is another case where every funny line is in the trailer.
