Just the facts: Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd star as unlikely partners in this hysterically funny action-comedy that pays homage to the famed original police drama of the '50s and '60s.

In this 80's classic, a pair of Detectives is assigned the case of stopping the P.A.G.A.N. (People Against Goodness and Normalcy) organization which is involved in some mysterious Satanic-styled rituals that are taking place on the outskirts of Los Angeles. They immediately clash as one officer (Dan Aykroyd) is a by-the-book officer all the way and the other, Tom Hanks is a goof-off slacker. Christopher Plummer is the slimy Reverend and Alexandra Paul is the virginal young beauty Connie Swail who is to about to be sacrificed by the cultists. With plenty of funny gags, this one is entertaining and worth a rental if you can just switch off your brains for about 106 mins.
