A kick in the face to all the Mad Mikes out there
13 October 1999 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

Ah, paramedics. Is there anything they can't do?

Quite possibly the best film ever made featuring rapping white ambulance attendants - in fact, I think rap and hip-hop music in general received a monumental boost in its quest for legitimacy after Uptown and Mad Mike belted their street-savvy showstopper at the conclusion of Paramedics. Magnifique! And to the agent out there representing the Fat Boys? Shame on you! What a perfect vehicle for those crazy corpulants this would've been. One can only sit and think about it.

Please, PLEASE regard all of this as sarcasm and steer clear of this trash. Peace out.
