With a name like Rock Slyde, he was destined to become either one of two things: porn star or private eye. The porn thing didn't quite pan out, so he became a detective. Now, he's fallen on hard times. Not only does he lack the clients required to pay the bills, his building's being taken over by a cult leader, Bart, who intends to buy out Rock's office for his [[ChurchOfHappyology Church of Bartology]]. Rock takes on a case with a new client who shares his love of coupons and receiving positive eBay feedback, and his refusal to sell his office to the cult leads Bart to brainwash Rock's secretary (a major setback for Rock, since she's the only one who knows how to use the coffee machine) and threaten to expose Rock's past as the star of gay, pirate-themed musical pornos ''The Jolly Roger'' and ''Butt Pirates of the Caribbean''. Not that it was much of a secret, anyway, since Rock used his real name when he acted in the movies.

Stars Creator/PatrickWarburton as Rock Slyde, Rena Sofer, Elaine Hendrix and Andy Dick as Bart, and features cameos by [[{{Seinfeld}} Jason]] [[{{Duckman}} Alexander]], Eric Roberts, [[Film/BackToTheFuture Lea]] [[Film/HowardTheDuck Thompson]], Guillermo Rodriguez, [[Music/AliceInChains Jerry Cantrell]] and Brian Bosworth.

!!This film provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: of FilmNoir, the first scene is shadowy monochrome before Rock's secretary [[ToneShift turns on the lights]].
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Rock's inner monologue immediately goes from talking about saving his secretary to squealing ''Coffee''!
* BaitAndSwitch: Rock gets mad when [[spoiler:Bartology converts his secretary... because he misses freshly brewed coffee]].
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Rock, on why his career in porn didn't work out: "I was hung like a hamster."
* TheCameo: Including Jason Alexander as a mailman, Lea Thompson as a recruiter for the Church of Bartology, and Music/AliceInChains guitarist Jerry Cantrell.
* CampGay: ''I'm the Jolly Roger and I ride the seas, swashbuckle me, swashbuckle me, get on your knees!''
* ChurchOfHappyology: Bartolgy.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Bart's henchmen glare at him while he's describing Rock's gay pornos. Bart snaps that he didn't ''watch'' the movies, and what are you looking at me for? Rock Slyde is the one ''in'' them! [[spoiler:Bart was "Gay Pirate #7" in ''The Jolly Roger'', which was how he knew some of the embarrassing details.]]
* EveryoneIsBi: "I didn't know what 'bi-curious' meant."
* FemmeFatale: Sara Lee. She was sent into Rock's office with a fake case by the Bartologists, but ends up falling for him. [[spoiler:It doesn't work out after he defeats the cult, however.]]
* LoserProtagonist: Rock Slyde
-->''"Maybe he was right, maybe something was missin'. For example, why do I rely on positive ebay feedback to boost my self-image?"''
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Giving the leader of a cult new plans for world domination. ''"Oops".''
* MistakenForGay: Rock was in two gay porno movies, but only because [[ExperimentedInCollege he was young and needed the money]].
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Rock is a private eye who's better known as the star of gay, pirate-themed musical pornos.
* PrivateDetective: Rock Slyde
* RaceFetish: Rock likes black women. He wonders, does he like black women because he used to watch ''Soul Train'' as a kid, or did he watch ''Soul Train'' because he likes black women?
* ShoutOut:
** Rock claims that, like [[Literature/WizardOfOz Dorothy's Tinman]], he has no heart.
* StraightGay: Rock's ''Jolly Roger'' character is this, largely because Rock himself is straight. ''He needed the money''.
* StylisticSuck: ''The Jolly Roger'' was very obviously shot in front of a green screen.
