Entertaining comedy.
15 May 2006 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

When a rookie punk rock group ( Adam Sandler, Brendon Fraser and Steve Buscemi) are in need of a career as they take over a radio station with fake guns in demand to have their song on the air, unfortunately the police are outside armed but the group are taking the people inside hostage so they can get their demands especially their record career.

Entertaining and quite funny satire has some good laughs and co-stars Ernie Hudson, Chris Farely, Joe Mantegna, and Michel Richards. The Soundtrack is good with songs by Motorhead, White Zombie, Primus, Anthrax and The Ramones, the movie is a cross between "Die Hard" and "This is Spinal Tap", Sandler and the rest have good performances here in this movie.

Recommended if you want a good natured and funny comedy satire!
