Two bumbling private detectives get themselves hired to find a missing person. They quickly find themselves in the middle of a mob war that takes place between New York City and Rome, when it turns out that the missing person is somebody the mob wants to stay missing.
The film was not successful at the box office, but it has gained cult film status in recent years, with out-of-print, used VHS tape copies selling on Ebay and Amazon.com for as much as $50.00 USD. It is noted for its low-budget production values, cheesy '80's synth soundtrack, and being the only film released from the Cannon Group to have lost money at the box office. However, it is also representative of '80 culture at the time when slapstick briefly resurfaced in popularity with American audiences.
"Detective School Drop Outs" was released on DVD (via Manufacture on Demand) from MGM in October 2011.
