Airheads - 3 stars out of 10

Airheads - 3 stars out of 10

“Airheads” is exactly what you expect.  Just picture Brendan Fraser, Adam Sandler, and Steve Buscemi as a group of unintelligent-nineties-surfer-loser musicians who are trying to get their demo played on the radio.  Yep, that’s “Airheads.”  I guess that the movie is okay for what it is, but when you compare the almost high-brow stupid humor in “Billy Madison” to this script, it’s just another bad Adam Sandler movie.  The film definitely gets bonus points for including Chris Farley and the studio hijacking plot works fairly well, but there comes a point where it’s clear that the writers were just trying to find a way to resolve the conflict.  Maybe people were really digging this movie during the prime of Sandler’s Saturday Night Live Career, but after movies like “Happy Gilmore” and “The Wedding Singer,” this one just feels like a weak stepping stone on his way to comic gold.

[Pictures: Yes, this movie is exactly what you think it is]
