Cry Uncle is a 1971 comedic mystery directed by John G. Avildsen. Sleazy, foul-mouthed detective Jake Masters (Allen Garfield) leads a slow-paced life and never really expects to reach the same level of intrigue and danger as he sees in detective movies. Everything changes when he accepts a strange case from a wealthy man, Jason Dominic (David Kirk). Jumping at the chance to earn $5,000 for his questionable detective skills, Masters agrees to clear Dominic's good name after Dominic has been accused of murdering a young starlet. It becomes clear that the millionaire was involved in a pornographic film and has tried to hide the film from public consumption. Along with his new assistant, Cora Merrill (Madeleine Le Roux), Masters wades into a world of sleazy crime that does not seem to faze Masters. Suddenly involved in blackmail and hobnobbing with prostitutes, Masters seems right at home, but it remains to be seen whether he can help his client.
