Cool As Ice


This is from the long-forgotten Vanilla Ice movie Cool As Ice. Because I'm not retarded, I avoided this movie like the plague when it was released in 1991 but this clip was just sent to me and I'll be damned if this isn't one of the best things I've ever seen.   Vanilla Ice's career was so brief, he was already an afterthought by the time this got to theatres, but if the rest of the film is even half as good as this clip, I suspect this might be a cult classic that I've been missing out on.   The director, David Kellogg, had ten Playboy videos to his credit when he made this opus and the screenwriter had one episode of 'Beverly Hills, 90210' to his credit. (The episode where Brandon meets Dylan and hangs out with his cool surfer friends and one of them is a cute little blonde with a drinking problem!)   I need to find and watch this movie.  It looks amazing, and the pedigree of the talent behind it is undeniably awesome.

  1. I actually saw most of this about 10 years ago on TV. I think it's all pretty much what that clip is.
