Overview
In this hilarious, high-octane whodunit, rock 'n' roll detective Ford Fairlane (Andrew Dice Clay) is stunned when the king of shock-jocks, Johnny Crunch (Gilbert Gottfried), is electrocuted on the air. After all, the victim was his only paying client! Crunch had hired Ford to track down a mysterious groupie named Zuzu Petals—a search which quickly finds Ford tangled up, and trading insults, with a ruthless record executive (Wayne Newton) and a merciless hit man (Robert Englund).
