I remember seeing this film on VHS while I worked at a video rental shop in the 80's. I thought it was a funny campy film but Hey! I like these type of films actually and then. I everytime like Dan Akroyd films so it didn't matter if this was not up to snuff with the likes of Ghostbusters or Blues Brothers. It was difficult to trust he made that movie then. I recently acquired this film on laserdisc just about a week ago. I had not seen the film since the 80's. I since taped over my VHS dub many years ago. It was nice to sit down and have a several laughs and once again see the 'Doctor' in action. The picture is clean with only a several spots and scratches. The sound is only analog and not digital but delivers very surprising and strong for an older movie. It's a fun movie never the less. Yeah! it was no box office smash or a nice comedy or action film, but there's just something about these lesser films that brings you back to a better time. Dan does a nice job even with the film's downfalls. Hey he got a nice wife out of the deal marrying Donna Dixon from the film! It falls in the genre with the likes of 'Howard the Duck'. Both were box office failures but there are still those devoted fanatics out there still searching for these 'gems' everyday. So for me the 'Doctor' is everytime 'in' my film collection.
This is not the kind of film you watch for the intelligent 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 tiny mindless entertainment, especially since Dr. Detroit doesn't pretend to be anything else.
In this move, Aykroyd presents a new look at what makes a boy tick, his desires, feeling, emotions and passions. Aykroyd plays Clifford Skridlow, a somewhat nerdish college professor who is timid and mildly neruotic. This hero speaks to a lot of us as we walk our method through life, often unnoticed and unsatisfied with our interactions with others. Longing for nothing but happiness, we weave our method through the obstacles of life much as Clifford rushes through the quad on the method to class, taunted and laughed at by the students surrounding him. But this isn't just other film designed to identify with unsatisfied loners.While enjoying dinner at an Indian Restauraunt (symbolizing the social and cultural diversity of humanity), Clifford is picked out by a local pimp to act as a scapegoat to avoid debt to Mom, of the infamous Mom's Limo Company. How many times have you been picked by those more successful than you to take the blame? It's getting a tiny to true at this point, as the action picks up it's pace. Clifford gotta invent an inner personality to cope with the feelings of rejection and hatred, and the hero Doctor Detroit is born. He embodies all that Clifford wishes he should be, suave, feared, respected, wealthy, and adored by women. The metal hand on his left arm is a not so subtle attempt to portray the desire of the low to be strong. The powerful reference to Nietzsche's concept of boys rising up from the ashes and becoming a powerful race of supermen cannot be ignored at this point, and it's clear that this is more than just a silly comedy. With his newfound alter-ego and inner strength, the doctor conquers evil and saves the day. In a triumphant final speed, the Doctor retires his inner personality encouraging the gathered crowd to be powerful and search their own inner selves, while returning to a life of a normal, unknown man.But what will happen to him? Why did he select to allow his inner self die? Was this a sacrifice, or a lack of courage? What would Nietzsche think about this complex analysis? This film will leave you asking these any many questions. Highly recommended, especially as an introduction to another nice works such as Nietzsche's Beyond Nice and Evil.
