Video Vengeance #16 - COOL AS ICE - Free Screening feat. WORDBURGLAR!
"When a girl has a heart of stone, there's just one way to melt it.: JUST ADD ICE."
Vanilla Ice that is, in his first starring role!
COOL AS ICE features Robert Van Winkle aka VANILLA ICE as Johnny Van Owen, a rapper with a crew who wander around the country on motorcycles, rapping wherever and whenever they can. When one of their 90s-as-hell motorcycles breaks down, they become stranded in a small town - and don't you know it, ICE falls for Kathy Winslow (Kristin Minter) much to the chagrin of her father Gordon (Michael Gross).
It's a modern Rebel Without a Cause - only with more Nintendo Entertainment System POV shots, giant salt shakers, and leather jackets that say YEP YEP on 'em.
It's also got the Oscar winning Janusz Kaminski (Schindler's List) as Director of Cinematography!
AND: We've got rapper WORDBURGLAR on deck to perform some kick-ass freestyles before the show!
See the film that had people saying:
"[COOL AS ICE is] so unapologetic in its naive cheesiness that it transcends mere awfulness and enters into the realm of true camp entertainment." - Allmovies
"COOL AS ICE is another case of so-bad-it's-good, it has to be seen to be believed." - Letterboxd Review
"Vanilla Ice should have won best actor for this role" - IMDB User Review
