"Ice Ice Booby!"
5 May 1999 | by dvoxSee all my reviews

Ridiculous, rhinestone, detectives vs. diamond thieves made-for- tv mayhem that rips off the viewer. Even the usually palpable directing of the innovative Dan Curtis ("Dark Shadows") cannot rescue this dry-ice, frozen tv-dinner turkey! An early scene wherein a crook kayos a cop, steals his uniform, leaves him tied to a toilet, then releases a tear-gas/smoke bomb for diversion, should be sufficient warning that this deep-freeze dud itself is a COMPLETE BOMB! Maybe if they'd waited twenty years they could have hired Ice Cube and Ice Tea for the lead roles! (and Vanilla Ice could have sung the theme song "Ice Ice Booby!")
