Editorial Reviews

David Johansen ("Oz") and John C. McGinley ("Scrubs") are joined by Fran Drescher, Rosie O'Donnell,Daniel Baldwin, Jeremy Piven and original TV series regulars Nipsey Russell and Al Lewis in this laugh-a-minute Coney Island ride that doesn't let up! Bumbling Brooklyn beat cop Gunther Toody (Johansen) and his inept, by-the-book partner Francis Muldoon (McGinley) must keep a Mafia kingpin's (Baldwin) mitts off a stoolie (Piven) scheduled to testify against him. To do this, they break him from jail and stow him in the trunk of Toody's car. But when the car goes missing, the clues lead Toody and Muldoon to Coney Island for the showdown of their lives!

1.0 out of 5 stars One star is too many July 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I've no doubt I'm one of many products of the baby boom who endured this dreadful flick because of fond memories of the original Car 54 series. The series, of course, was no intellectual banquet, but it had charm and fun.
This film version's one-joke premise is that Gunther Toody, whose facial expression and manner would make one wonder if those with lower intelligence than Neanderthal man are candidates for the NYPD, cannot keep his hands off his wife. Dreadful bore.

1.0 out of 5 stars PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE was better. January 8, 2005
The movie considered to be the worst movie ever is Ed Wood's PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. That movie was more entertaining than this. This takes a funny TV show and makes it look awful. I agree with what the person said about feeding the hungry children in one of the other reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars A gotta have...stinker. March 29, 2008
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I had to have this strictly because of former New York Doll, David Johansen. Weak plot, crappy acting, crummy effects...but a must if you like obscure stuff by a original NYD. Hey, buy it, it's cheap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse use of a disk than putting AOL signup on it. January 14, 2006
That is really saying something about how bad this movie is.

So bad, it's even beneath the legions of AOL users to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved It. Go Figure. January 9, 2010
Judging by the preponderous of one star reviews I must be a majority of one in my adulation for this flick. For whatever reason it struck a chord with me. I bought this at a store that was liquidating it's stock and it intrigued me. Maybe it has something to do with my affinity for star David Johansen. I was fortunate to see him live four times in both his Buster Poindexter persona and the latest incarnation of the New York Dolls. Johansen brings the same manic energy to "Car 54" that he brought to his music performances. Johansen also impressed me in his other prominent screen efforts, "Scrooged" and "Let it Ride". Also, how can you go wrong with a deliciously eclectic cast that includes John C. McGinley, Jeremy Piven, Fran Drescher, Nipsey Russell, and "Grampa" Al Lewis. Even the odious Rosie O'Donnell couldn't ruin the flick for me. The movie is not so much funny but goofy in a surreal kind of way. It owes itself more to the "Police Academy" or "Naked Gun" movies than the original TV series. I loved this movie so shoot me.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it......go figure. July 29, 2006
I liked the made me laugh out loud several times.But then again I have all of Woody Allen's movies on DVD. Fran, from the "Nanny" played a happy go lucky prostitute...did a good job. It won't be confused with "Gone with the wind" or even "Who's the man?" but it made me laugh.....Sometimes people take movies too seriously.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain hideously bad May 12, 2005
I only wish the ratings went below 1 star because this crap fest doesn't even deserve that. I probably shouldn't even be acknowledging the existence of this film by giving it a rating.

This movie surely deserves less than one star. Many less. Too Bad Amazon doesn't allow for that. I loved the original series and especially Fred Guinn. Read more
