Vice Squad is a 1982 action/crime drama film, starring Wings Hauser, Season Hubley, and Gary Swanson, directed by Gary Sherman. The original music score was composed by Joe Renzetti and Keith Rubinstein. Wings Hauser sang the vocal track on the film's opening and closing theme song "Neon Slime".
When Los Angeles' police force down-on-her-luck businesswoman-turned-prostitute "Princess" to help capture a murderous pimp named Ramrod it's Princess's life that is put on the line. Soon, the escaped killer is after her, and vice squad detective Tom Walsh and his team are hard pressed to keep the woman safe.
Original use of the phrase "make my day"
In a scene early on in the movie, Detective Walsh, while arresting Ramrod, puts his gun up to the side of Ramrod's mouth and utters the phrase "Come on scumbag, make your move...and make my day!". The phrase would be similarly uttered a year later by Detective Harry Callahan in the Clint Eastwood movie Sudden Impact, becoming a catchphrase as a result.
