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.Written by

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 »
When Ford blows out the flame on the milkshake and then takes a drink, it is very obvious that he doesn't even touch the shake and it is also obvious that the 'slurp' is dubbed in. See more »
Excuse me, did I hear the f-word out of you? You say "fuck" again and I'll bang you right to fuck. Now get the fuck out of here.

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.
