Andrew Dice Clay's best performance
22 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film is not all that bad as critics made it out to be. Some situations are fairly funny, the story takes wild turns and more importantly, it is Andrew Dice Clay's best performance to date in a non-Dice character. The movie came out on DVD in May 2001 and I had to buy it. I watched it before on VHS and only because Dice was in it and I've gotta tell you, not only I wasn't disappointed, moreover, very much impressed.

The story focuses on Stacy (Lea Thompson) and Melissa (Victoria Jackson), two best friends. So girls just wanna have fun but at the same time are searching for something more than just a one-night stand. They go to a health resort to try their luck among health nuts and just plain weirdos. That's where Stacy meets Vinny, aka the Vin Man (Andrew Dice Clay). "I'm the best from the east, I'm a wild and crazy beast, I'm the Vin Man!"

Of course, Stacey dismisses him as just another brainless dick. Not so fast, fruitcake. Turns out that the lewd, crude, tough macho exterior was hiding an insecure little puppy. Vinny reveals his sensitive, vulnerable side and before you know it, he's the most likable and memorable character in the movie. Andrew's performance is amazing, you can really see his character development; he's an arc. There's a scene where he almost makes you cry.

So when the story begins to switch back and forth between Melissa's whirlwind romance and Stacy's attempts to rid herself -- and her apartment -- of a wannabe rock star, you'll find yourself missing Vinny and a little disappointed... but not for long. Just wait until Stacy gets that letter... :-) You'll now see a very different, extremely endearing Vincent Falconi.

Behind the X-rated nursery rhymes and sexist jokes Mr. Clay sure can act if/when given the right role (like most talented actors!). Remember that you heard this from me first. The Diceman is destined to make a Travolta-style comeback...
