Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Controversial sexist 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 a rock 'n' roll detective 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 Streetopus) 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.
