Friday and Streebek are assigned to some very strange robberies, like i.e. the stealing of one bat, a 30 foot long snake and the mane of a lion from a zoo. All the latest BAIT magazines were also recently stolen, and some chemicals that when are mixed correctly develops a very deadly gas. All these thefts have one thing in common; visit cards with the word "PAGAN" left at the crime scenes. Solving these crimes, including why plenty of police vehicles have been stolen lately, involves the usual; to drink coffee at strip tease bars, rescue kidnapped virgins from drowning and lose their jobs.

Kathleen Freeman played the Nun in "The Blues Brothers" that beat John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd with a ruler for using foul language. In Dragnet, the name of Freeman's character is "Enid Borden". Therefore, her initials are E.B. Those are also the initials of Dan Aykroyd's character in The Blues Brothers: Elwood Blues. See more »

Hey partner. I tried to call you up till midnight. I didn't know the Christian Science reading rooms stayed open so late.
Not that it's any of your business, but I spend the evening in the company of Connie Swail.
Don't you mean "the Virgin Connie Swail"?

Towards the end of the film, when Streebeck arrests Muzz, he raps him his rights. In the closing credits there is an extended version of this, with Friday and Streebeck rapping about rights, as well as about the PAGAN ritual they witnessed. See more »
Tom Hanks reminds us of just how good a comic actor he is, and Dan Ackroyd just "becomes" his character! I found the movie to be part dead-on parody, part slapstick, part cop movie (with a twist). Christopher Plummer and Dabney Coleman have a ball with their supporting roles, and Alexandra Paul adds just a dash of sex appeal. I was smiling from start to finish, and could watch it over and over.
