Doctor Detroit (1983)

Dan Aykroyd featured in his first leading role (not long after the death of his partner John Belushi) as a mild-mannered midwestern WASP college teacher 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.
