Movie of the Week! The Adventures of Ford Fairlane!
For this weekend’s viewing pleasure, I give you, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Now now, don’t be so quick to judge, yes, it has chauvinist pig Andrew Dice Clay, but as long as you’re in on the joke, it’s damn funny. Also starring Wayne Newton as the bad @$$ heavy, Priscilla Presley, and just about anyone that was big in the 90s. (now that I’m older, Dice reminds me of my friend Sean when he’s on a roll. In a good way of course)
This movie came out in 1990 when I was, uh, young and Dice was the ish. Right after he was banned from MTV. (he did his little miss muffet on the MTV video awards when they were already running late… not a good idea. google it)
The best thing to come out of this movie? Billy Idol’s Rock the Cradle of Love. I cannot tell you how many times this video was played in my school. All the girls wanted to be her, or cool like Billy Idol and Dice. And we all had the entire video memorized.
Gawd I miss 1990. ;-)
