Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dice features the crude, foul-mouthed humor the show's star is known for; he plays a version of himself in this uninspired comedy. There's lots of strong innuendo, some drinking, lots of cigarette smoking, and occasional pushing, shoving, and arguing. Gambling is also a major theme. Only the biggest fans of the Dice-man (are there any left?) will enjoy his latest return to the screen.

What's the Story?
DICE is a semiautobiographical comedy series featuring Andrew Dice Clay as he tries to revive his career. Twenty-five years after his meteoric rise to fame, the controversial comedian is older, almost broke, and looking to revamp in Las Vegas. When he's not performing on the strip, he spends a lot of time with best friend Milkshake (Kevin Corrigan) gambling away the little money he has. Meanwhile, he's trying to keep his girlfriend, Carmen (Natasha Leggero), happy. No matter what Clay's up to, he always finds a way to insert his trademark four-letter-word-filled humor into everything.
Is It Any Good?
This unoriginal comedy series features Andrew Dice Clay as a faded, insecure, and older man whose often-kind intentions are often misunderstood because of his unrefined persona. But the writing is flat, often leaving Clay's brazenly crude and offbeat comedy style feeling dated.
There are a few humorous moments, and guest appearances by Adrien Brody, Lorraine Bracco, and even Wayne Newton help it along. Hard-core Dice fans may want to tune in, but the lack of fresh material makes you wonder how it will appeal to a younger generation of viewers who are less familiar with his work.
