Ford "Mr. Rock n' Roll Detective" Fairlane is experiencing problems, and it's not with the opposite sex. One of them is that all the rock stars pay him with drum sticks, koala bears, food processors and bicycle shorts. Another one of them is that all his employers that want him to find a girl named Zuzu Petals get killed. Why didn't he become a fisherman's detective instead? A must-see for Andrew Dice Clay fans.

When Ford and Zuzu go up the stairs of the Capitol Records Building and end up on the roof, Ford does an impression of James Cagney in White Heat (1949) saying his iconic line "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" In that film, Cagney's character is named Cody Jarrett. Ironically, the actor playing aspiring pop star Kyle Troy is named Cody Jarrett. See more »
Jazz is thrown sideways through a window, but on the next shot, she is going head first. See more »
Hey, look. Write down my number: 555-6321 Got it?
Twin Club Girl:
Yeah. Wait a minute. 555 is not a real number. They only use that in the movies.
No shit, honey. What do you think this is? Real life?

The title of my post says it all for the ratings this movie received. I mean less than a 5?? This movie is in the cult classic section in every video store I go to! Sure this movie was harsh and witty while poking fun at the music industry of the late 80s/early 90s. And for those of you familiar with the late 80s/early 90s music scene, you'll remember how chaotic it was back then! This movie is a testament to all the decadent happenings during that time. Although filled with campy one-liners, an all-star cast, and extremely vulgar material, it's a Dice movie after all! That's how it's supposed to be! Granted this movie is not for everyone, it's still fun to just sit there and laugh along with the movie's gags. Offensive maybe, cheesy maybe. Get over it ya wimp!
