I wish I was that cool.
22 August 1999 | by SZMSee all my reviews

(from the man who brought us the term "wigger") The genius behind "Ice Ice Baby" and "Ninja Rap" brought us a true classic for us to marvel at. How does a film of this calibre ever make it into the theaters? Not even the bottom of the sewer-tank "comedy" antics of Pauly Shore can even compare to this mecca of stupidity. This is the worst film of all time... (though Double Team does hold a close second in my books). So, without hesitation, go to your nearest video store and RENT IT!! You'll double over laughing at Ice's inane and ridiculous attire, dialogue and mannerisms. If only we could all be that cool.
