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

Let’s educate on why the likable jerk works in the media and why The Adventures of Ford Fairlane fails on that regard. But first the story, Ford Fairlane (Andrew Dice Clay) is the womanizing “Rock n’ Roll Detective” who’s hired to investigate the murders of Bobby Black (Vince Neil), the lead singer of The Black Plague and his radio DJ best friend Johnny Crunch (Gilbert Gottfried).

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.

“Let’s educate on why the likable jerk works in the media and why The Adventures of Ford Fairlane fails on that regard.

Most of the clues to the crime include a trio of CD’s, answers from a groupie Zuzu Petals (Maddie Corman) and wealthy socialite Colleen Sutton (Priscilla Presley), and the name ‘Art Mooney’. The important thing about despicable comedic jerks is they have connections to something relatable, in a way that reveals their attitude toward humanity. Ford’s only character traits are he loves 1950’s me” read more
