There are movies you like to watch and you want to remember. Then there are movies you don’t like to watch, but you must, and you can’t forget them. Also, there are movies, you don’t want to watch, but you have and you … and so on, haven’t got the time to complete this thought to the end, if there is any.
-Ford Fairlane was one of those movies that was so much fun to make that it was bound not to be a big hit.
Yes, the film was no big hit and it is considered to be a lousy movie. At least the film critics hate the movie. Well, I’m no critic and I just love Ford Fairlane.
There must be something wrong with me.
I love the humour of the film, I find it very funny. I adore the stereotypes of the role characters, the somewhat poor and rigid acting.
I won’t analyze this further, because I’m not the critic.
Just love it without thinking.
Here’s my favourite quote from the film, said by Ford Fairlane, the rock’n roll detective himself played by Andrew Dice Clay:
“Conversation with Zuzu Petals was like masturbating with a cheese grater: slightly amusing, but mostly painful.”
