THE ORIGINAL STORIES - e-BOOK NOW ON SALE !!!






THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE, the 1990 movie starring Andrew Dice, directed by Renny Harlin for 20th Century Fox, has become a worldwide cult classic with a dedicated fanbase around the world. The movie was based on original stories by journalist Rex Weiner, now collected in a new e-Book published by Cultmachine for Kindle and available on Amazon, celebrating the movie's 23rd anniversary.

Unavailable since first publication in 1980 as serialized weekly episodes in the New York Rocker and the LA Weekly, the two gritty tales follow private eye Ford Fairlane, the music industry’s “rock n roll detective,” as he solves cases involving the punk rock and new wave scenes in New York City and Los Angeles in the late-1970’s. 

The stories include real musicians of the period such as Jame Chance of the Contortions, and real places such as the Starwood, a Los Angeles rock palace long since demolished, where punk stars such as Darby Crash regularly performed.

“In response to many requests," said Rex Weiner, "I’m pleased that Cultmachine is offering these stories through Kindle Publishing in which I created the character played on the big screen by the Diceman—and there will a new story sequel if enough fans demand it.”

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING 21 YEARS LATER: "Renny Harlin's best film..."

5 Days of War Coming Soon

Let’s blow some stuff up!

I’m not a fan of Renny Harlin. He may be an “acclaimed director” in some people’s eyes, but to me he’ll always be the guy who gave us The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.


HESO MAGAZINE

Hands down Renny Harlin's best film is The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990). No argument. Otherwise known for his sequels, he has a knack of bringing out the worst in otherwise decent actors (Bruce Willis, Samuel Jackson), while coaxing fun performances out of unexpected places (Andrew Dice Clay, LL Cool J). Despite what some would say has been a disappointing career, the Finnish-born director is persistent in working to bring his ideas to the big screen. One of the best (to drink to) is Deep Blue Sea, a story based on using DNA from “enhanced” sharks to cure Alzheimer’s Disease, a completely plausible storyline given credence by Caucasian-sounding Jackson’s command performance. Too bad the Diceman was unavailable to be the sharks’ straight man.

POP DOSE "A pompadoured turd of an action/comedy..."

Box Office Flashback: July 20-26, 1990 | Popdose

9. The Adventures of Ford Fairlane
In 1988, Andrew Dice Clay was one of the hottest comedians around; by 1990, he was Gallagher with a cigarette poking out of his mouth. Let us consider ourselves fortunate, then, that it took so long to deliver The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, a pompadoured turd of an action/comedy that surely would have been a hit if Hollywood had been a little quicker on the draw. Twenty years later, there are only two interesting things about this stupid movie — the fact that director Renny Harlin was in such high demand at the time that it shared the Top 10 with another of his films, Die Hard 2, and this video:

20 YEARS LATER - WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE:" Forgive me, father, for I have sinned..."

TV critic's picks: Tuesday, July 20, 2010
Gene Simmons, Piper Perabo and "Ford Fairlane."

By Neal Justin, Minneapolis Star Tribune July 19, 2010

Tossing the Dice

Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. It has been 20 years since I chuckled a couple of times during "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane" (9 p.m., FMC) and helped make Andrew Dice Clay a temporary star. I'm not the only sinner. Please add to the list director Renny Harlin and co-stars Wayne Newton, Priscilla Presley, Lauren Holly and Morris Day. They knew not what they were doing.
