PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime
The equally-straight-laced and "by the book" nephew of Joe Friday must work with his more laid-back partner to solve a mystery.
Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks have Donna Dixon in common. She is married to Dan Aykroyd. She was Tom Hanks love interest on the TV show Bosom Buddies (1980).
You know, Muzz, you have the right to remain silent. If you give up the right to remain silent any thing you s-, you know these words, Muzz! C'mon, sing along!
Pep Streebeck: Anything-you-say can-and WILL be USED against-you IN a-court of LAW!
Obvious stunt doubles at the P.A.G.A.N. festival when Joe and Pep move away from the pool to make a running jump into it.
Towards the end of the film, when Streebeck arrests Muzz, he raps him his rights. In the closing credits there is an extended version of this, with Friday and Streebeck rapping about rights, as well as about the PAGAN ritual they witnessed.
In the network TV version two scenes that involve a character reaching for a package of cigarettes have been edited; these include Friday reaching for a pack on his desk, which has been edited with a freeze-frame of the photo of his uncle (original Joe Friday played by Jack Webb) next it, and Emil Muzz reaching for a pack in his interrogation process, which is completely cut.
