Cool As Ice

Ever wonder what would happen if a movie studio decided to build a film around a middling pop-star, tab a director whose previous work consisted of Playboy Calender videos, and set the budget at 6 million to remake “The Wild One” with rap music.  Well if you are curious feel free to watch “Cool As Ice” starring the timeless Vanilla Ice.

Here are some more fun facts provided by myself and IMDB.

The actor who plays Timmy Timmons from the Sandlot is the little brother of the love interest (Kathy) in Cool As Ice.

Johnny Van Owen’s (Vanilla Ice) jacket has the following phrases/words/symbols embroidered on it: DANGER, DEEP, Down by law, FREEZE, HYPE, ICE, Lust, ah yeah!, ROLLIN, sex me up, yep yep, ? (question mark), DOPE and the letters “JK” surrounded by a star.

The movie grossed $ 1,193,062 in the US

Don’t let anyone try to tell you this is a cult classic.

Lisa Marie was offered the role of Kathy Winslow, but declined.

Also Gwyneth Paltrow nearly took the role of Kathy until her father advised her against it.

The dad from Family Ties plays Kathy Winslow’s dad

In case you were not aware “Vanilla Ice is going take an uncool world and chill it to the bone.”

Naomi Campbell is inexplicably in the opening scene lip syncing.

This is everything you need to know about 1991.
