Mr Van Winkle explores new depths in movie making
6 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

While it is hardly necessary to comment on Vanilla Ice's acting abilities, other than to say that he makes Steven Segal look like Robert De Niro, I feel I should warn other unsuspecting innocents about this movie. To be brief, this is the worst movie I have ever seen, bar none, and I have seen some turkeys in my time. I know Ice's appalling music career should have warned me as to how bad this is, I had no idea as to the actual level of it's stupidity. Basically it's just a movie length music video(and a terrible one at that). It's only purpose is to further inflate Vanilla's already huge ego. You have to question the sanity of the director responsible for this piece of tripe. Surely he knew what he was getting himself into before he agreed to take the job?
