Andrew Dice Clay,
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.

While reviewing dailies, Fox was so impressed they offered director Renny HarlinDie Hard 2 (1990) immediately. He began shooting that film while this one was in post-production. See more »
At the beginning of the film, when Ford is telling the backstory of rock star Bobby Black when he dies on stage, the song Bobby sings includes the line "No she don't give a... No she don't give a SHIT!" Later, when Ford is watching MTV and sees Zuzu Petals in Bobby's music video, we hear the same lyric, including the word "SHIT". It is a violation of FCC rules to air an obscenity on a broadcast without censoring the word. MTV would be fined and/or reprimanded for airing an uncut version of the lyric. (Ironically, Andrew Dice Clay was banned from MTV for life after using obscene language on the MTV Music Video Awards, thus getting MTV in trouble with the FCC.) See more »

Sure there is crude humor, but it's *Dice Clay*. He is who he is. This actually seemed cleaned up a bit for him. Mr Rock and roll detective gets to investigate the death of Vince Neil. You throw in Precilla Presley, Gilbert Godfried, Ed O'Neill. That is a recipe for just funny. *Very funny*, lots of good one liners, very quotable. Then again, I evidently have the mental capacity of a dead hamster. ;) If for nothing else, it is a definite watcher for fashion don'ts. Yes we *really* did dress that way in the late 80's early 90's, it was very "Rock and Roll", we thought we were cool. Though now I can't imagine why... Excellent time-period comedy. It's a re-watcher.
