“That Vanilla Ice movie” turns 20 years old

Cool as Ice
(Via sts999999)

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.

Check out the ground breaking trailer.

  1. I have to admit that I’m not sure that I can beat out my curiosity…

    Had NO idea that there was a movie.

  2. This is a prime example of “fun bad” that even stood out when I was watching a lot of bad movies. After my friends and I watched Cool as Ice on VHS in the mid-90s, our D&D campaign ended up featuring a recurring villain based on Vanilla Ice and the phrase “Banana Cycle” entered our lexicon after my cousin Peeg coined it for Ice’s motorcycle in this flick.

  3. Um, I was eleven when this cinematic gem appeared…I can’t believe I missed out on it, as I sure as hell owned his single cassette tape with the sweet ass instrumental version of “Ice Ice Baby” on the B side…believe I am renting this movie this weekend…how can I not with an endorsement like yours: “This movie is terrible. But awesomely so.”
