Adventures of Ford Fairlane, The (1990)

Controversial sexist standup comic Andrew Dice Clay crashed and burned in an awkward misstep from action director Renny (Die Hard 2: Die Harder) Harlin.


The over-hyped Clay plays rock ‘n’ roll detective Ford Fairlane (pictured at right) who is investigating the death of a heavy metal singer on stage in this crude adventure, big on empty spectacle but very low on honest laughs.

Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street opus) turns up as a killer with a bad English accent while Priscilla Presley and Wayne Newton (as a nasty band manager) send themselves up as usual.

A little Clay goes a long, long way. The music is by Yello.
