Best movie that any of the stars were ever in... and Steve Buscemi has been in a LOT of excellent movies. Note that the audience score is a lot higher than the critics' rating... go figure.

This movie is kind of silly, but it has a few moments that make me laugh. The cast wasn't very well known when this first came out, so it is fun to watch them at that stage of their career. It sometimes falls a bit flat though.

This movie is a veritable who's who of 90's talent that would shortly blow up into collective superstardom. The narrative is coherent while at the same time providing a subversive snapshot of 90's counter culture.

I don't hate this move, it's just not that good. The acting is fine, but the story and humor are so cringey it makes the viewing not that pleasant.

Absolutely ridiculous, but it appeals to the youthful rocker within me.

Also Adam Sandler is place mercifully far into the background.

Airheads, present a funny cast and an very good performace by Steve Buscemi. The film, make laughs with your Dog Day Afternoon satire, but the script could be more intelligent.

This is a very underrated comedy. Fraser, Buscemi, and Sandler play 3 metal band members looking for their big break but are denied by every record label so as a last ditch effort, they go to a radio station to get their demo played and when the DJ refuses to play it, they take everyone hostage. Buscemi is hilarious in this film and Sandler plays off his "cute dumb guy" character. The story has other little dramatics with it that make the story not only focused on the 3 main characters which is good. Like I said, very underrated and worth a watch especially if you grew up in the 80s and 90s.

This is a great comedy. Can't believe the low rating. I must have watched this 20 times when I was younger."We can rock out after breakfast".

Definitely a fun flick full of great '90s treasures... if you can get past the ridiculous liberties it takes with how authorities handle hostage situations.

Could have been a good movie, poor execution and writing. Cheesy in nature.

This movie well hilarious is also so improbable it has barely any plot other then rock and roll and fake guns filled with hot sauce the cops in it are absolute idiots and them playing in the prison is dumb as hell

I thought the cast in the movie was good. It was funny and at times entertaining. I did not think the plot was that great in this movie.

Must have been an inspiration of the writer's brain capacity.

Even if you like these actors then that's still not a good enough reason to see this movie.

A stellar cast and a rocking soundtrack can make the movie right? Wrong. "Airheads" screenplay is a sloppy mess. The main plot is a desperate band wants to be heard on the local radio station to hopefully give them their big break and they inadvertently turn it into a hostage situation. The plot could work but we're rushed into the hostage situation so fast that we really don't get a feel for many of our "heroes". Then when we are in the hostage situation the same morals and setups are done so many times it feels longer than it should be. You're best off staying away from this one and just rocking to the soundtrack instead.

"Airheads" is exactly what you expect. Just picture Brendan Fraser, Adam Sandler, and Steve Buscemi as a group of unintelligent-nineties-surfer-loser musicians who are trying to get their demo played on the radio. Yep, that's "Airheads." I guess that the movie is okay for what it is, but when you compare the almost high-brow stupid humor in "Billy Madison" to this script, it's just another bad Adam Sandler movie. The film definitely gets bonus points for including Chris Farley and the studio hijacking plot works fairly well, but there comes a point where it's clear that the writers were just trying to find a way to resolve the conflict. Maybe people were really digging this movie during the prime of Sandler's Saturday Night Live Career, but after movies like "Happy Gilmore" and "The Wedding Singer," this one just feels like a weak stepping stone on his way to comic gold.
