    When I saw Airheads in 1994, I wrote it off as a stoner comedy and a complete turkey. I was wrong on both counts. The characters are dumb, but aren't on drugs. And it's not a turkey, merely... fine. And entertaining on its own terms. There IS something a little retro though about this hair band making a big fuss about rock'n'roll post-grunge, like its writers were not quite "with it". It's not so much that I can't believe The Lone Rangers wouldn't exist (plenty of would-be guitar heroes are stuck in the past, and they DO reference that "Seattle shit", but the whole environment seems to be stuck in Bill & Ted land, with even the "cool" radio jockey not quite understanding these "young people". But otherwise? Brendan Fraser is sympathetic as the front man who almost accidentally takes over a radio station to get his tape played on air. Buscemi is Buscemi. And Sandler and Farley are early enough in their careers that they don't mug the movie out of shape. And you have Michael Richards in there doing a hapless Die Hard riff. And ultimately, even if it feels a little out of time (which is fine, watching this 20 years later, I'm out of time too), it does understand the anarchic spirit of rock'n'roll and has fun with it. 10 months 1 week ago
