Airheads

Airheads

Director: Michael Lehmann Cast: Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi, Adam Sandler

DVD (Wide Screen)

Overview

Steve Buscemi, Brendan Fraser, and Adam Sandler are true Airheads, rockers destined to get airplay of their new single -- even if it means taking a hostage or two at a local radio station. Fox has done nice work on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, making sure that all aspects of the picture are even and clear. The colors, black levels, and flesh tones all look natural and well-preserved with only the slightest amount of edge enhancement present. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 4.0 in both English and French. While this track is certainly not as expansive as a Dolby 5.1 mix might be, overall it has a nice range of directional sound with no distortion present in any of the dialogue, music, or effects. Also included on this disc are Spanish and English subtitles. Airheads features a few well-done special features, including a 15-minute featurette that is sort of a "news report" on the radio station takeover, as well as two music videos: Motörhead's "Born to Raise Hell" and White Zombie's "Feed the Gods." Finally, there are two TV spots, a trailer for Airheads, and a few other Fox theatrical trailers. Fans of this film or heavy metal should get a kick out of this above-average edition of Airheads.

Okay but has a charm to it. The three leads were fun in this though.

This is what Dog Day Afternoon would be if it was comedy and if the instead of robbing a bank the guys with the guns were a band and held a radio station hostage to get their demo tape heard on the air. Lots of name talent in this extremely funny film.

This movie was so awesome! It had 3 of the best actors on earth in it, and best of all, its about rock'n'roll. I recommend this to all the rockers out there, whoa re tiered of the chick flicks! :-P
