The Adventures of Ford Fairlane Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Controversial and often offensive stand-up comedian [[Performer~P13535~Andrew Dice Clay~andrewdiceclay]] made his debut as a feature film star in this crude comedy. Fairlane is a "rock and roll detective" who works in the music business, has an office on Sunset Boulevard, and drives a 1957 Ford, with clothing to match. He floats through the rock clubs of Hollywood, picking up women and clients, and soon stumbles into a case involving the death of a heavy metal singer, a corrupt music executive ([[Performer~P52474~Wayne Newton~waynenewton]]), the murder of a radio shock-jock ([[Performer~P27947~Gilbert Gottfried~gilbertgottfried]]), and the kidnapping of the jock's daughter ([[Performer~P15046~Maddie Corman~maddiecorman]]). Music stars like [[Performer~P20933~Sheila E.~sheilae]] and [[Performer~P51036~Motley Crue~mötleycrüe]] singer [[Performer~P52115~Vince Neil~vinceneil]] also have cameos in the film, which attempts to transplant Clay's aggressively obnoxious stage persona into a movie environment. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi
