Storyline

Before he was The Diceman, he was a poor, pathetic, put-upon Jew from New York who was disrespected by everyone he came across. Everyone. Then - he got the studded vanity leather jacket--and the Diceman was just - well, he just appeared. And his coolness and general attitude about everything just blew everyone away. Cut to Madison Square Garden where the Diceman himself not only became cool, suave, arrogant - and strangely Italian. He filled the arena two nights in a row. He comes onto the stage and croons in a Gold-Record worthy Clay original - then he starts the stand-up. And leaves no taboo - taboo. The attack on everything. The need to just blow the lid off of everything the fascism of political correctness has been taking over worse than - well, any Holocaust ever did. And the crowd is always giving him a standing ovation loud and powerful enough to level the house. Written by Dane Youssef

Trivia

20th Century Fox was originally set to release the film in December 1990. Due to the failure of The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990) and a string of media controversies for Andrew Dice Clay surrounding its release, they dropped the project. Clay called the decision "a load of crap... [it] could have been a cool Christmas present for my fans... to see the Diceman up there on the screen, 40 feet tall. I completely trusted the people at Fox, put my entire career in their hands, which turned out to be my mistake." See more »

Unbelievable!
8 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

I can't say I expected much of "Dice Rules" at the beginning. It starts out with a series of lame sketches, giving us a pseudo-autobiographical look into Dice's life and how he inhabited this persona. He pretty much does this ludicrous Jerry Lewis impression, and I only laughed seldom. But I was glad to see Eddie Griffin, an underrated comedian, in one of his early roles. He appears as a gas station attendant.

Once we hit the 30-minute mark and arrive at the concert portion, all is made up for. Nonstop laughs! Dice delivers his trademark ultra-crude, ultra-explicit, ultra-nasty and ultra-funny humor. Those who don't get his humor, those who are easily offended--You shouldn't be watching this movie in the first place! For fans of Dice...you shall not be disappointed.

Sure, he's very frank with the cuss words, but I'm able to tolerate it because I know it's all an act. I mean, he's not even Italian! He's a Jew doing a very exaggerated impersonation of one. So you know all the rudeness is strictly in jest.

If you want big-time laughs...roll the Dice and take your chances! Just make sure you fast-forward through the first portion. Just stay for the stand-up.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
