Storyline

When not solving murders in Tinseltown, Detective Joe Gavilan and his rookie partner Kasey Calden both moonlight in other fields: Gavilan sells real estate (poorly), and Calden aspires to become an actor (Brando, namely). Assigned to the vicious in-club slaying of a promising young rap act, the two detective delve into the recording industry where they hope to find answers - ideally ones that also come with property buyers or auditions.

Trivia

The film seems to trace a parallel between the classical Motown phenomenon and the recent vigor of rap and hip-hop, contributing to the differences between the main characters. Examples of this may be that the cast includes celebrities from both worlds, such as Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Andre 3000 and Kurupt; the ring tone for Ford's character is "My Girl" while the one for Josh Hartnett's is "Funkytown"; and Gladys Knight words to Ford when telling about her character's son.

Dead On Arrival
28 September 2005 | by StanleyStrangeloveSee all my reviews

I'll have to admit that I found a tape of this film in the cabinet and since I'd never seen it I thought I'd give it a try. I knew it was going to be a loser when the credits took forever. It has something to do about rap music and murders. Harrison Ford is a detective and, get this, he sells real estate. His partner is Josh Hartnett who does, get this, yoga and is a health nut. I guess the film is supposed to be funny but it isn't. Harrison Ford looks truly bored and sometimes has the far away look actors get when they're looking at some babe on the set and not paying attention to their character. I watched only 35 minutes and it was so lame I quit on it.
