Campy as heck
This is not the type of movie you watch for the clever plot and well-defined characters. This is a cheap, bawdy comic romp to be enjoyed with the fellas at a weekend get-together or at a bachelor party. Where else can you see a nubile young Fran Drescher wearing next to nothing and James Brown urging a crowd of scantily clad dancers to “get up offa that thang” in the same movie?

Nothing wrong with a little mindless entertainment, especially since Dr. Detroit doesn’t pretend to be anything else.

“Mom, I’m gonna rip off your head and sh*t down your neck!”
I don’t know if that saying originated with this film, but it was certainly the first time I’d ever heard it. And it still makes you laugh 25 years later. Doctor Detroit is truly an odd-ball vehicle for Dan Aykroyd. He plays an up-tight literature professor at a conservative college in Chicago. One day a cash-strapped pimp played by Howard Hesseman is riding through town with a limo filled with his four beautiful ladies. They notice Aykroyd out “power walking” to a Devo song and make fun of him. Later on, they notice him at a restaurant and decide to bring him into their business. But this will not be all fun and games. Leaning on this group is a nasty limo service owner known as “mom”. Mom is a mean and ugly old woman played by Kate Murtagh. Hesseman owes her a fortune and he decides to skip town and put Aykroyd in his place to pass the debts (and likely beatings) on to him. In order to scare mom off, Aykroyd and his new business partners devise an alter ego for him known as “Doctor Detroit”. And he is supposedly the baddest pimp in history. He and mom have a battle to the end for control of the prostitution industry of Chicago. Oh, and the college Aykroyd teaches at is going broke, and they need a bunch of money to keep it going. Don’t forget about that subplot! It sounds pretty dumb, and maybe it is. But it is really quite funny. Aykroyd’s Doctor Detroit is quite a site. Bright flashy pimp clothing, gold medallions to hang amongst his chest hair, dark glasses, a wig that resembled the hairstyle of Ozzy Osbourne at that time, and a metallic hand out of an old suit of armor. His voice is that of Beldar Conehead. He dances, he cackles insults, and he outwits mom at every turn. Soon enough, his reputation on the street soars. He will even be crowned as the king of pimps at a players ball held in the same hotel where his college will be given a large endowment during a formal dinner. All on the same night! But will mom show up to spoil the party for everyone??? The cast is full of recognizable faces. Aykroyd is hilarious as the Doctor. And he basically plays an even more uptight version of himself as Clifford Skridlow the professor. The four working girls he has are very hot to say the least. One of them (Donna Dixon) would later become his wife. Fran Drescher looks as good as ever. T.K. Carter needs to work more these days. He is an 80s actor that is sorely missed in this day and age. James Brown makes an appearance and does a number at the players ball with the Doctor. These players balls for pimps are a very real thing in true life, too! A sequel was hoped for, but this film didn’t make much money. Too bad! 7 of 10 stars.
