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.

In the original theatrical release, (and can be heard on the soundtrack; Track #9 "Unbelievable" (which is sound clips from the movie set to music by Yello,)) Ford's toll free number was originally "1-800-PERFECT," not "1-800-UNBELIEVABLE". 1-800-UNBELIEVABLE was dubbed over for the video release, probably due to 1-800-PERFECT containing 7 letters, which would translate to an actual phone number. If you listen to the video release, you can even hear an obvious difference between "1-800" and "UNBELIEVABLE" where it was dubbed over. See more
