Dragnet (1987 film)

Dragnet is a 1987 American buddy cop comedy film written and directed by Tom Mankiewicz in his directorial debut, and starring Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks. The film is based on the television crime drama of the same name starring Jack Webb. The screenplay, both a parody of and homage to the longrunning television series, was written by Dan Aykroyd and Alan Zweibel. The original music score is by Ira Newborn.

LAPD Sgt. Joe Fridays nephew and namesake Aykroyd, whose anachronistic views reflect those of his late uncle, is involuntarily assigned a smartalecky, streetwise new partner, Pep Streebek Hanks. Their contrasting styles clash at first, Friday disapproving of his young partners attitude, hair, and wardrobe, but they gradually bond over their first case as a team, an investigation of a series of bizarre thefts involving items as disparate as a tanker full of chemicals, police, fire and paramedic vehicles, a wedding dress, a wood tree bat, an anaconda, a lions mane, and the entire monthly print run of Bait, the pornographic magazine owned by Jerry Caesar Dabney Coleman.They follow the trail to an Orange Countybased cult calling itself P.A.G.A.N. People Against Goodness And Normalcy. After further investigation, Friday and Streebek focus on one of the cults henchmen, a brutish limousine driver for Jerry Caesar named Emil Muzz Jack OHalloran, who then reveals to Friday and Streebek the location of the next P.A.G.A.N. gathering during a gruesome interrogation by Streebek and a table drawer. ........
