The lifeless music and dance sequences in which the rapper performs with his crew have the feel of low-budget video clips that have been inserted almost by mistake.
Having established that he can't rap or dance, Vanilla Ice now adds acting to his resume -- call it the tri-imperfecta of pop.
...a best-forgotten relic of the 1990s...
So bad that it's borderline fascinating.
Favorite lines: "Drop that zero and get with the hero ... You live your life for someone else -- you ain't livin' ..."
This one is absolutely pricless in its awfulness.
The most brilliantly insane pop-star movie ever, lensed by Spielberg regular Janusz Kaminski and loaded with stylistic strangeness. Ice Rules!
No comment needed.
Melt this baby!
At least supermodel Naomi Campbell had sense enough to merely sing under the opening credits rather than try something out of her league.
Frigging awful, but I loved it. Vanilla can't act (at all) and his lines are cringe-able, but like a car crash, you can't quite turn away, and his character does have a bratty charm to him. He sings 3 songs in this, so it is padded out with music. Depending on how you feel about Vanilla Ice and his music, that's either a good or bad thing. For me, good, I kind of liked it back in the day. So you have that 90's music video feel to it, atrocious 90's fashions and a rebel gets the good girl storyline all in what is widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made.
I don't think it's a worst movie by a long shot. Yes, Kristen Minter is the only one who can act, and I'm not entirely sure if Vanilla is in on that joke, or he really *does* think he is that cool, but it's engaging, amusing and pretty well filmed. I downloaded this in hd on iTunes and it looks pretty great for its age.
The scenes of Vanilla and Kat getting to know each other are quite sweet. Initially I didn't buy the attraction, but as it went on, I warmed to Kat and I could see how they actually were a good match.
Things get a little messy in the kidnapping sub plot. That kid can't act who plays the brother. Wow. Still, it's that kind of movie, so I can't hate on him either.
Overall, highly recommended to bad movie or 90's fans. It won't be for everyone, but if you fall into one of those categories, you will probably find something in this movie to enjoy.
This was High School Musical before High School Musical, and for those who know me, that;s definatley NOT a good thing. The plot was stupid, the acting was horrible and the script could have been made by a monkey (Or an HSM fan, but I honestly believe you could get better results from a monkey)
Let's start out with the acting. It is a whole new dimension of bad. There wasn;t a single actor who did a good job, but out of everyone, I think Vanilla Ice was the worst actor. You know, when you think about it, Vanilla Ice is a pretty pathetic human being. He can;t sing, he can;t dance and he cannot CAN NOT act. I don;t think I've ever seen such horrible overracting by a main character since Spy Kids 3. He looks like 2Pac's Italian gangstah homeboy.
The plot was REALLY stupid and cliche. Basically, it's 1 hr. 32 minutes. So here's the plot. Basically, Vanilla Ice goes to the suburbs and runs into this preppy girl named Kathy, but the parents don;t want them to be together because they're from different worlds. WOAH, I WONDER WHERE I HEARD THAT PLOT IDEA. OUT OF ALL THE MOVIES I'VE SEEN, I CAN;T THINK OF A SINGLE ONE!!
As for the script, I'll make it brief. You know your in big trouble when your most memorable line is "Don't be a zero, get with the hero" My God, sounds like something I would hear from Suite Life.
However, the worst part of the movie might be the rapping. This rapping, as well as the dancing, is so lame, it makes Drake and Lil Wayne look good. Oh yeah, I went there. Napolean Dynamite might as well be writing the lyrics.
Bottom line, one of the worst movies of the 90's. If you value your brain cells, and your reputation, stay away from this movie like cancer.
Oh man was this bad, but it was bad in that 90's way. The acting is the worst I've seen in a long time. Just awful. I'm not going to lie, it brought back my long standing 1st grade crush on Vanilla Ice.
"Cool As Ice" was a cheaply made, train-wreck of a movie created for the sole purpose of capitalizing on rapper Vanilla Ice's fleeting fame. Very few careers survived in Hollywood after being involved with this movie, which was directed by a man (David Kellogg) whose previous films included "Playboy: Wet & Wild" and "Playboy Playmates of the year: the 80s" and "Playboy: Playmates at Play" (actually, he seemed to have worked exclusively for Playboy before making "Cool as Ice "). I was never a fan of the career that belonged to Rob Van Winkle, I hated him when he first came out and I still hate him to this day, I watched this film only in the hopes that it would be the worst film I'd ever seen and I could claim it as such, but much to my disappointment, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen. It's only mildly horrible. It's an almost literal re-working of an old Elvis Presley film. You know the kind, Elvis comes into town on his motorcycle, townsfolk don't like his rebel attitude, (except for the nice girl who's strangely attracted to him), and eventually, Elvis/Vanilla is going to have to bust out some fake karate moves on the town's bigoted ruffians. This seems to have the same production values as those "3 Ninjas" movies from the 90s, and everything is painted that ugly "newjack swing" color that was so awful back in the day (remember how the fly girls dressed on "In Living Color"?). The biggest star in it seems to be Michael Gross, the dad from the tv show "Family Ties". He's the biggest star and probably one of the worst actors. Vanilla actually doesn't do too bad an Elvis imitation: he manages to look at the camera smolderingly and pout his lips out just right (in the male model tradition). So in a sense, he seems to act the part he's playing, which i assume is some version of himself. The plot is all a mess though, I still don't understand how they can mess up the "rebel comes to town and wins the girl" routine, but they somehow throw gangster/kidnappers into the mix and it just gets silly. But as I've said before, this isn't the worst movie I've seen (up til this point in my life). That honor still belongs to "Quigley", starring Gary Busey as a business man who gets re-incarnated as an adorable little dog out to save a family.
