I’ve been getting in trouble my whole life and I really don’t care what anybody thinks of what I do on stage as a comic. – Andrew Dice Clay

The rock-and-roll comedian takes a small step into the role of a rock-and-roll private dick in this crass LA noir-comedy. Dice plays Ford Fairlane, a detective who specializes in sleazy music biz cases. When an apparent accident at a heavy metal concert leaves a rock star dead, a shock jock hires Fairlane to track down a missing groupie who might have a lead on the singer’s death. A parade of LA bimbos, sleazeball record execs and a koala bear follow leading Fairlane on the ride of his life with barely enough bullets for all of the people he’d like to kill.
