Doctor Detroit (1983)

Dan Aykroyd featured in his first leading role (not long after the death of his partner John Belushi) as mild-mannered midwestern WASP college teacher, Clifford Skridlow, getting mixed up with some hookers.

The premise gave him full rein to showcase all of his comic talents, and he is particularly good as a ludicrously OTT pimp.

He is let down, however, by a loose script and crude direction by Michael Pressman.
