Who'd win in a fight, Lemmy or God?Coming in 1994, long after heavy metal's salad days were over, Airheads was oddly out of place, even as a showcase for a bunch of folks from Saturday Night Live.
A band takes over a radio station in hopes that hearing their song on the radio will make record executives take notice and sign them to a recording contract.
OK, sure. Because that's much easier than getting an agent.
Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler are the band in question (The Lone Rangers...get it? There's three of them, yet they're The Lone Rangers? See? And they're stupid, and they're at a radio station, thus the title Airheads? Get it?) and while there's an occasional joke or two (although two does seem rather high) that's actually funny, for the most part it's an exercise in lameness. Michael Richards continues to coast on his Seinfeld work, although Chris Farley doesn't seem to embarrass himself too much. Granted, he hadn't made Beverly Hills Ninja, yet.
You can actually see the embarrassment on Joe Mantegna's face whenever he's on screen.
There's cameos from Rob Zombie and Lemmy (from Motorhead, for all you non-headbangers out there) but the novelty wears off instantly.Trick question. Lemmy is God. Too bad Lemmy didn't have the common sense to not be associated with this movie in any way.
