Description by OLDIES.com:
The shocking tale about an eccentric millionaire, sex, the murdered mistress, sex, a part time country music man, more sex...and Jake, the suave debonair lover, poet, athlete and 262 lb. private detective from New Jersey who's been hired to sort it all out and find the real killer...and even more sex!
Academy Award winner John G. Avildsen (Rocky, The Karate Kid) directs from a screenplay by David Odell (The Dark Crystal) in this outrageous comedy, with an even more outrageous cast including Allen Garfield, Paul Sorvino and Lloyd Kaufman.
Director John G. Avildsen's wild and raunchy comedy stars Allen Garfield as Jake Masters, a sex-obsessed, wise-cracking, 300 lb. private eye who is hired by millionaire Jacob Dominic (David Kirk) to solve a black-mail inspired murder. Lucile Reynolds, a hooker and porn actress has been murdered, and Dominic has been framed for the ghastly deed. Although, Lucile had been blackmailing Dominic with footage of a porn video that they had taken part in, the powerful millionaire swears his innocence. With the help of Cora Merril (Madeleine Le Roux), Dominic's paid mistress, and his horny nephew Keith (Devin Goldenberg), Jake is on the elusive case. Soon Masters and Merril are looking for clues in this hysterical sexcapade, complete with pot-smoking, whacked-out cops, raunchy hookers, and a hysterically irreverent necrophelia scene. Masters is a raunchy combination of Hercule Poirot, James Bond, and the Blues Brothers, sporting a way with women, poetry, and a keen eye for mysterious details in this oddball caper. An amusing blend of irreverent porn and mysterious satire that highlights a clever and raunchy script by David Odell, loosely based on LIVE A LITTLE, DIE A LITTLE by crimewriter Michael Brett.
CRY UNCLE is a wild and occasionally raunchy comedy about a private eye who gets involved in a blackmail-inspired murder.
