Adam Sandler, Brendan Fraiser and Steve Buscemi are The Lone Rangers, a luckless Southern California heavy metal trio who, armed with water pistols, invade a radio station and demand that their music is played.
Their fake weapons are mistaken for the real things, however, and the band is forced to hold station employees hostage. An LA stand-off ensues. Zippy, goofy and lighthearted, with fine performances by the three leads.
When station DJ Joe Montegna says, "The Lone Rangers? There‘s three of you. You‘re not exactly ‘lone…"
The Lone Rangers are more power rock than true heavy metal, and Steve Buscemi looks a little long in the tooth to be playing in a struggling band. But it‘s full of Spinal Tap-ish spirit, and that counts.
