    Doctor Detroit - Bluray Review
    [​IMG]


    Clueless professor Clifford Skridlow (Dan Aykroyd) is caught in two jams. His parents are relying on him to impress potential donor just as he becomes the patsy for Chicago pimp Smooth Walker (Howard Hesseman). Smooth is being shaken down by mob boss Mom (Kate Murtagh) and leaves Clifford holding the bag. Clifford falls under the spell of Smooth's harem, 4 high class call girls (Donna Dixon, Fran Dresher, Lydia Lei, Lynn Whitfield) and must somehow protect them and their handler, Diavolo (TK Carter). With help from the school's drama department and Clifford's love of chivalry, the badass persona of Dr. Detroit is born! Dr. Detroit must shut Mom down while Clifford figures out how to keep the school going.

    Godawful movie but it's where Dan Aykroyd met his future wife Donna Dixon. :P

    I saw this countless times on cable in the mid eighties. I loved it as a kid (I loved the goofiness, and the pretty girls) but I watched the DVD years ago, and while it doesn't hold up the way I remember it, I will still buy this solely for nostalgia....one of the most powerful factors in impulse purchases for me.

    For me it was on cable (never saw it in the theater) during my early college days which I caught once or twice. Already on pre-order for the memories of my days of youth where seeing uncut movies on my home TV was still a new thing.
