It’s hard to define the best scene in Cool as Ice, the film that turned credible rapper Vanilla Ice into a credible actor. That this movie wasn’t worth a single Oscar or didn’t win the Palme d’Or can only be seen as a crime against humanity. In the film tough guy Vanilla Ice manages to win the heart of a posh rich girl and… erm, no, that’s about the entire plot.
In the scene you’re about to see the director manages to interweave in a most subtle manner Ice’s coolness on the bike with the sexiness of a girl riding a horse. The slow motion, combined with wonderful music (read: scratching – we know this coz we is hip), gives us the best proof of why cinema needed to be invented. It also taught me that the best way to win a girl’s heart is to give her a concussion. Actually, the only reason why this film isn’t shown more often in trash nights is because it’s downright unbearable to sit through the entire film without contemplating genocide.
