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.

John McClane returns to battle terrorists who have taken control of Dulles Airport on the holiday evening that his wife is flying into town.

John Amos, Dennis Franz and Fred Dalton Thompson add support.
