When Chaz infiltrates Palatine records and has his conversation with Jimmy, Wing never introduces himself, nor does anyone else use his name. How does Chaz know the name of the man he met when ranting about the music industry on the air? See more »

Oh yeah! That was for all you pinheads out there too hip to take off your leather jackets in this 95 degree heat. Now I know when the weather gets like this it brings all you nut bags out of the wood pile. And since I am a trouble magnet, I have one thing to say to you bozos, and that is, back off. Here's the Sons of Thunder from the debut album Scrabbled Eggs and Wobbly Legs. You're listening to Ian Shock, on the station with more hair, more flair, yet so debonair, ...

Aside from editing some language, the TV version changes one of the last scenes: when Rex is pelvic-thrusting and Chazz gestures "no no no", instead of a shot of a pair of prisoners grinning laciviously, the TV edit uses a shot of two prisoners staring confused at Rex. See more »

This is a great movie that simply doesn't get alot of credit. An amatuer band known as the Lone Rangers (Fraser, Buscemi, Sandler) sneak into a recording studio to have their demo tape played on the air. When refused, things get out of hand and they hold the place hostage.
This movie has an original plot line with good humour and good acting. Keep in mind that this movie comes very early on in the careers of all three title characters. Personally I find the calibre of acting that Fraser and Sandler have in this movie better than some that came afterwards.
When you start watching this movie, you'll want to finish it. Perfect example, my room mate who came in the room looking for something ended up staying for the whole movie.
Give this baby a chance. If you don't like it, you've lost the price of a rental.
