Movie Trash – Cool as Ice

“When a girl has a heart of stone, there’s only one way to melt it. Just add Ice.”
Cool as Ice is as good as that tagline on its poster. Vanilla Ice plays Johnny. He is a Suzuki-riding badass rapper who gets stuck in a small town. But you aren’t going to believe what happens next… he falls in love with a local girl! I know, crazy. But that isn’t all… she and her family are in the witness protection program! What a pickle ol’ Vanilla found himself in. But with a little rapping and a whole lot of cultural appropriation maybe he can find the answer.
This garbage fire of a movie is amazing. Directed by David Kellogh, who brought us the Inspector Gadget live-action feature no one remembers as well as Playboy: The Best of Wet & Wild. The real hilarious crew note is that the cinematography was by longtime Spielberg cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. I guess no one can just start with Schindler’s List, although Cool as Ice may be a more unpleasant viewing experience.
