Vanilla Ice gifted us his movie, Cool as Ice, 20 years ago. It debuted in October 1991. And the world would never be the same. I was going to mention this last month but I was kinda busy.
The movie is a rap-oriented remake of Rebel Without a Cause. The female lead was originally going to be Gwyneth Paltrow until her father, Bruce Dern, advised her against it (good call). Other pop culture celebrities in this movie include Bobbie Brown, the mega hottie in Warrant’s Cherry Pie video and Mr Keaton himself, Michael Gross.
If you are super curious and want to watch this awesome 80s train wreck, you can stream it on Netflix. Trust me, watch it. It’s so quotable and it’s amazing to watch Vanilla Ice beat up like 4 bullies in one fight. You will not be disappointed. This movie is terrible. But awesomely so.
