Andrew Dice Clay,
Dice Rules (1991) was a concert film that captured Andrew "Dice" Clay during his mainstream popularity era. For a few years, the "Dice Man" was all the rage. Misogynists loved him, everyone else loathed or hated the man. But how many people can say that they sold out Madison Square Garden? Knowing that his mainstream acceptance wouldn't last very long, he wisely milked it for whatever he could get out of it. Two theatrical releases (a movie and a concert film). The mainstream and bandwagon fans who wanted to be "hip" abandoned him. Today, the "Dice Man" is back entertaining his fans and performing nightly in Las Vegas. Not bad for a man who people thought would just fade away into obscurity.
One note about this picture. In order for it to be a theatrical release, the film makers had to pad out the running time. They added a prologue about how Andrew Clay used to be before he got his "jacket". A funny short that's well worth the rental of this movie. Love him or hate him. He's an American original.
Recommended for Andrew "Dice" Clay fans.
