THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE
1990, 20th Century Fox, 104 min, USA, Dir: Renny Harlin

Andrew Dice Clay found a movie character perfect for his larger-than-life persona in Ford Fairlane, a “rock ‘n’ roll detective” catering to the music industry from behind the wheel of a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. With an arsenal of off-color one-liners, Ford confronts a motley crew of musicians, shock-jocks, groupies and label executives to solve the on-stage murder of a heavy metal singer; among the many cameos in this cult favorite are memorable turns by Vince Neil, Gilbert Gottfried, Wayne Newton, Priscilla Presley and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET baddie Robert Englund.
