Plot Summary
Dan Aykroyd stars in this comedy about a nerdy professor masquerading as a mobster. Professor Clifford Skridlow teaches a course called "Chivalry in Literature" at a Midwestern college. When he is asked to come to the rescue of four call girls who are being threatened by Chicago's most ruthless mob boss, Skridlow decides to practice what he teaches. Disguised as high-rolling gangster "Dr. Detroit," the shy academic is introduced to a world of wicked pleasures.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...Entertainingly slapdash..." 05/06/1983 p.C10

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
There is a sense in which "Doctor Detroit" could be a Jerry Lewis movie. It begins with the portrait of an eccentric, mild-mannered mope who leads a life of quiet desperation. Enter a mob of colorful Chicago criminals, who change the mope's life forever, furnishing him with an alternate identity and a whole new outlook on life. Mix this up with some pretty girls, some chases and lots of chances to embarrass fuddy-duddies and play with fire extinguishers, and you'd have a Jerry Lewis movie that the French would write a book about. - Roger Ebert
