User Reviews

Cool As Ice succeeds where Easy Riders failed to create a compelling, gritty perspective on motorcycles and the gritty dreamboats who ride them.
10 February 2003 | by EggsOvaryZSee all my reviews

I can say little about this movie that hasn't been summed up in previous reviews save for this: Buy this movie, it is imperative that you own it. It the the funniest movie I have ever seen in my entire life and will instantly enthrall anyone old enough to remember this crazy idiot. Furthermore, it has been my experience that this gem and an ample supply of alcohol can instantly revive any stagnating party. NOTE: Make sure that you have surround systems in place to capture all of the ridiculous rap numbers as they are essential to the hypnotic effect of this film. As a final note, you may want to have the remote handy as there are scenes that are so hilarious you will want, nay, NEED to rewind them and watch them over and over again. You will no doubt, as I did, come away desperately trying to understand how/why this movie was made. It is an enigma for the ages and unraveling its stupefying mystery is futile. Get some friends together, put on your best pair of mismatched shoes and behold the majesty that is Cool As Ice.
