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...

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

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.

"Katsottu: 1. & 2.12.2015, 2nd Watch, DVD Ihan katseltava komedia. Toimintaa olisi voinut olla vähäsen enemmän. Tässä oli näköjään Robert Englund pienessä roolissa. "

" 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. "

""Booty time, Booty Time...Across the U.S.A.!" Classic "bad" movie with plenty of weird scenes and stupid dialogue. "

"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. "

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 impersonator with tackiness and bad vibes to spare, his over-exaggerated mock "Itallian" accent, his trademark leather jacket jeweled all-over with rhinestones and studs, chain-smoking and spreading misogyny and prejudice. (sniff, weep, sob. I really miss the '80's).

The whole movie looks like a film that clearly embodies the whole spirit and soul of the '80's.
