COOL AS ICE (1991)
Based on the film's 2.8/10 IMDb score and all of the snide comments you see online about this film you would think that it's an incompetent turd of a movie, but it's actually fairly entertaining. The story is straight forward, the photography by longtime Spielberg collaborator Janusz Kamiński is quite impressive, the music numbers are seamless into the story and not forced, the supporting characters are all memorable, interesting set designs and the acting by the whole cast (yes, even Mr. Ice) are all perfectly fine. Honestly, I enjoyed Ice's playful manner and goofy lines like "...I'm just cooling." and "Then let's g-o."
Recommended for people who don't take life too seriously and/or fans of cheesy 90's cinema. If I was mega-rich I would without a doubt finance COOL AS ICE 2 with no regard to if it made money or not. I am curious as to why the song "Ice Ice Baby" was not used?
