A good cast and some great funny moments
2 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

The music made them do it.

Chazz(Brendan Fraser), Rex (Steve Buscemi), and Pip (Adam Sandler) are a band known as The Lone Rangers, and all they're looking for is some attention. But when they take over a radio station with fake guns in order to get their song played over the airwaves, they get a little more than they bargained for.

A great cast and some really funny moments make this a nice way to spend 90 some odd minutes. Chris Farley and David Arquette also star in this. It was released the same year as "Dumb and Dumber" and has some very similar comedy. Overall this is allot different though. There is a little bit of violence but nothing too bad. There is also a few good "Die Hard" spoofs.
