1987 Certificate: pg


Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks play ill-matched LA cops in this comedy thriller that affectionately spoofs the 1950s TV series. Aykroyd is Sergeant Joe Friday, an ultra-straight lawman whose by-the-book approach ("Just the facts, ma'am") goes out of the window when he's paired with hotshot detective Pep Streebek (Hanks) to investigate a series of pagan murders. Christopher Plummer is the cult leader who may be behind it - but we won't know until we have the facts.
