Isn't for every taste, but those tuned into Clay's goofy personality are rewarded with a hilarious performance that finds the comedian at his most confidant and playfully mischievous.

It's harmless fun with a breezy '80s ambiance -- a neon playground with a cross-eyed soundtrack, smoky widescreen cinematography, and a cool snapshot of Dice when he was king of the world.

Surprisingly funny and expectedly rude, this first starring vehicle by vilified standup comic Andrew Dice Clay has a decidedly lowbrow humor that is a sort of modern equivalent of that of the Three Stooges.

It's bad, it's been forgotten, and we can all move on with nary a second thought.

This expensively empty action comedy is as much fun as a car crash.

As vulgar and obnoxious as its star. One of the very worst films of 1990.

The person most likely to be entertained by ''The Adventures of Ford Fairlane'' need not be made aware of the film's existence. He's already on the screen.

Look at the star. Look at the director. See something else.

Funny in a south side of Chicago neighborhood kind of way, but not much more than his stand-up act.
| Original Score: 2/5

As a stand-up comedian, Clay's repertoire was minimal. On a movie screen, it's insufferable.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

[A] slick glorification of hate and loathing that portrays women as sexually promiscuous and men as infantile, violent and feeble-minded.
