Lame farce is poorly acted, badly written, and not all that funny.  and his pals  and have their own band but can’t get anywhere with their two-bit gigs and an industry that is not very welcoming. While visiting a radio station to get their demo played on the air, a fight erupts and the band members end up taking the radio station and its employees hostage. What follows is a mish-mash of a comedy that is difficult to sit through and not in the least bit likeable.  The characters are mostly too stupid to be sympathetic, but not stupid enough to be funny; Fraser is never believable as a metalhead for a second, while Buscemi gets all the good lines and gives the best delivery of them.
