Cool as Ice (1991; David Kellogg) – Best of Dare Daniel Rerun 11

“I’m gonna go across the street and, uh, schling a schlong.”

Daniel and Corky put on their formal parachute pants to revisit their wildly popular review of Vanilla Ice in the wildly unpopular Cool as Ice.


U.S. theatrical release date: October 18, 1991

Domestic box office: $1.2 million (production budget: $6 million)

Critic scores: 7 on Rotten Tomatoes

This week’s Darer: Heather Smith

Why did Heather S. dare Daniel and Corky to watch Cool as Ice“Because you need to drop that zero and get with a hero.  But this one might be too awful for any human consumption.  The whole movie is a cringe-fest, it’s like trying to watch The Office‘s Michael Scott attempt to lead a diversity workshop.  If you choose this movie, I cannot be legally held responsible if you roll your eyes so hard in your head that they get stuck.  You have been warned.”

IMDB synopsis: “A rap-oriented remake of The Wild One (1953), with heavy emphasis on the fact that Vanilla Ice has assumed the Marlon Brando role.”
