Quotes

[first lines]
Rock Slyde: My name is Rock Slyde, and I blame my mother. With a name like that I was destined for one of two careers. That's detective work, or porn. After starring in two art films, I decided the glamor life of a porn star wasn't for me. Besides, I was hung like a hamster.

Review
10 April 2009 | by jason-1775See all my reviews

"Patrick Warburton and Andy Dick ham up the detective genre. Warburton is Rock Slyde, a Smart Car-driving private dick so droll, so disaffected that he can't be bothered with come-ons from Rena Sofer's beautiful dame when he takes on her case to find out who's tailing her. Dick plays the wacky leader of The Cult of Bartology, whose main objective is to take over Slyde's office space to gain control of the building.

Director Chris Dowling takes full advantage of the genre's wide-open spaces for gags and comic allusions to film noir's past. And as the screenwriter, he chooses his shots and doesn't let the script fall into a punny mess.

Cameos from Jason Alexander, Jerry Cantrell, Brian Bosworth and others add to the fun. And Andy's real life followers will enjoy seeing him as a brunette."

-Marc Lee
