This is the city...and only Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks can save it in this hilarious box office
blockbuster that pays homage to the famed original police drama from the 50s and 60s. Aykroyd is at his
comedic best as the namesake nephew of Detective Sgt. Joe Friday. Like his uncle, he's a blue-suited,
by-the-rules cop who reluctantly joins forces with his footloose partner Pep Streeback (Hanks) to rescue the
City of Angels from the machinations of a power-mad Reverend (Christopher Plummer) and corrupt Police
Commissioner (Elizabeth Ashley).
