This movie was a surprisingly good 80s detective movie, especially considering the brash, foulmouthed Andrew Dice Clay was the star. Got to admit though, he was pretty good, and I am surprised we got no sequels in the series...

"THE BEAUTIFUL SWAN SONG OF THE 1980'S"

More dated than a Vanilla Ice album, "Ford Fairlane" was clearly a vehicle for Dice.

Unfortunately, this big loud, rock 'n' roll, sex-starved Ford crashed and burned. Figures. It was made in America.

During that fabulous, fucked-up era known as the '80's, the Diceman was on top of the world. Known for his persona as an Elvis imp... read more

Description: 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. Wh ... (more)

" "Hit paydirt, with KDIRT." While Andrew "Dice" Clay, may have not been one of my favorite comedians, it's still a pretty decent film, with some moments here and there. "

"July 19 "Hey, look. Write down my number: 555-6321 Got it?" "Yeah. Wait a minute. 555 is not a real number. They only use that in the movies." "No shit, honey. What do you think this is? Real life?" This was surprisingly a funny and clever movie. Although this movie came out in the 90's, it still has that feel that 80's movies have. This won't appeal to everyone, but I had a lot of fun with it."

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

""The Adventures of Ford Fairlane" is a movie about a hero I didn't like, chasing villains I didn't hate, in a plot I didn't understand. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times Over the long haul, it becomes as oppressively one-note as Clay himself. - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly The person most likely to be entertained by ''The Adventures of Ford Fairlane'' need not be made aware of the film's existence. He's already on the screen. - Janet Maslin, New York Times"

" There´s so much craziness in this film that it might actually be the worst and the best movie both at the same time. You wanna laugh because it is so full of cliches and bad acting by mr. Dice Clay. But when you see Robert Englund in his best role yet you just can´t stop watching this. "ITS BOOTY TIME!""

"13.4. Äärimmäisen ylilyövällä tavalla törkeä leffa, jossa Andrew Dice Clay kiroilee noin 70 prosenttia repliikeistään. Alkaa vahvasti, heikkenee keskellä, ja parantaa loppua kohden huomattavasti. "

"Rennyn alkupään tuotannosta näkee selkeästi miehen innokkuuden. Ford Fairlane on ammattimaisesti ohjattu kokonaisuus, joka on paikoitellen jopa todella hauska. Kiistelty koomikko Andrew Dice Clay sytyttää ainakin minut. Clayn huumori on todella sovinistista, mutta juuri siksi tämä elokuva toimiikin äijäporukan keskuudessa hyvin. Myös musiikkialan läpät uppoavat hyvin. Eikä sovi unohtaa Englundin mielipuolista roolisuoritusta pahiksena. "

"15.12. Rewatched on Digibox. *** Muistelin, että tämä oli neljän tähden tasoa, mutta paskat. Huonohan tämä oli, jossa vitsit ei oikein hauskuuttanut ja Dice Clayn olemus vitutti. Ihan kohtuu menoa kummiskin. "
