Recently, when I logged onto Netflix, on my recommendation list next to Trancers, The Big Lebowski, Louis CK, and The Dunwich Horror, was: Vanilla Ice: Cool As Ice.

No shit, Vanilla Ice. I don't know what the fuck I watched to make Netflix think I needed to see this film, but if their AI thinks I needs to watch it, who am I to argue? So I put it on. This trailer should give you an idea of what I was in for:

So I watched it. The whole thing. After the cavorting-in-a-construction-site scene, I almost gave up, but ended up making it through the whole thing.

And this is how I felt about it:

Oh my god those pants.

This film made it all the way through shooting, editing, and being released. By Universal Studios.

P.S. I swear I do not have a lazy eye, just the angle of the camera was weird or something.

Does she have sex with Ice, or his bike?

As far as I can tell, they lay in the field and trade clothes. Not sure if that's supposed to imply sex or not.

Also giving myself a high five for using the present tense to describe that to avoid having to figure out the correct past tense of "lay" in this situation. It wasn't even conscious.

"Vanilla Ice is going to take an uncool world...and chill it...TO THE BONE."

Welp, 5 minutes in I can appreciate it as the cinematic masterpiece it truly is. I can't possibly see how this failed at the box office.

Hiding under a blanket while you watch it--very appropriate.

I think this would be a hilarious thing to watch to fulfill that part of me that absolutely revels in terrible movies (I should get Liam to give it a whirl with me -- we haven't had a Bad Movie Night in a while, though maybe that's because nothing's ever going to rival The Room for us. Ohhh my god, The Room). For now, I just want to say that I like your face(s). These pictures = the making of my night.

Eric watched the entirety of The Room while we were still living separately and I have been afraid to give it a shot. But based on the reports, it is probably better-paced at least than The Room, and possibly better acted.

You have seen Troll 2, yes? Oh, also Pumaman. I recommend getting that one in the MST3K version, unless you're watching with particularly clever friends who can fill the same role.

I was going to click that....but then, I thought, "no. I choose life. And sanity." :P

Have you watched The Room yet? Heheh.

If you're up for something that's also bad but still engaging, there's also Troll 2. Unless you've already seen it. But really it's worth several viewings IMO.

I've never heard of this guy. This is pretty good. Probably better than watching the film.

Though he did completely miss the totally fucked up stalker/rapey relationship between Vanilla Ice and his love interest. But then a dude might. And there is so much to make fun of in the movie that that could easily take a backseat to OMG THOSE PANTS.

Vanilla Ice gives everyone the lazy eye. Or is it just the ladies? Can't remember . . .
