Rating: 3/4 -- In the midst of all of this, Dan Aykroyd enjoys himself and brings along a certain mad detachment that suggests he knows it's just a humble little screenplay, but he's amused by its pretension. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- Night Shift and Risky Business were both polished comic gems -- hilarious and clever in equal measure -- yet sandwiched between their releases was this like-minded effort that did NOT yield similar dividends. Full Review
Rating: C- -- I'll be honest: it plays a lot better when you're twelve. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 3/5 -- A sassy comic tale about transformation. Full Review
Spirituality and Practice
Rating: 2/5 -- There's no sense of momentum, structure, or escalating comedic craziness; it's is like a feature-length SNL skit, and it's the sort they'd air right before the end credits. Full Review
An insipid college professor becomes involved with four prostitutes after a smooth talking pimp leaves them at his apartment. The poor girls are trying to hide from the mob.
Dan Aykroyd stars in this comedy about a nerdy professor masquerading as a mobster. Professor Clifford Skridlow teaches a course called "Chivalry in Literature" at a Midwestern college. When he is asked to come to the rescue of four call girls who are being threatened by Chicago's most ruthless mob boss, Skridlow decides to practice what he teaches. Disguised as high-rolling gangster "Dr. Detroit," the shy academic is introduced to a world of wicked pleasures.
- A Black Rhino/Brillstein Company Production.
- Color by Technicolor.
- Featuring songs by Devo, James Brown and Pattie Brooks.
- Dan Aykroyd's first solo-starring role. He met his wife-to-be Donna Dixon on the set of this film.
