Beverly Hills Cop Quote: “I don’t know what you teach these fellows but they’re not just regular cops. They’re super cops. And the only thing missing on these guys are capes.” – Axel Foley

“Beverly Hills Cop” launched Eddie Murphy’s international movie career and was the biggest box office hit of 1984, but is it overrated? No, dummy.

This is the police comedy that brought us the banana in the tailpipe, the synth sounds of “Axel F,” the lovable Judge Reinhold at Det. Rosewood and Bronson Pinchot’s bizarre accent.

Does Eddie Murphy’s laugh get annoying? God yes. Do the action sequences make sense? Hell no. But “Beverly Hills Cop” gets our Shat Stamp of Approval. Find out why, and let us know what you think!

Plot Summary: “Beverly Hills Cop After his childhood buddy is murdered while visiting Detroit, rebellious cop Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) follows the leads to Beverly Hills, Calif., under the auspices of a vacation. He checks in with old friend Jenny Summers (Lisa Eilbacher) and starts to believe her boss, art dealer Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff), might somehow be involved in the murder. However, Lt. Bogomil (Ronny Cox) of the Beverly Hills Police Department does not trust Foley, and hinders his search for evidence.

    Friends and I saw Beverly Hills Cop at a 10 pm showing 84’….it was at the end of its theatrical run so the theator was pretty empty… we snuck in booze from our parents liquor cabinet…we laughed our asses off that night… that was one of those events you relive at reunions for years to come.

      Your story is the exact reason we started the podcast. It’s not only to remember the movies, but how they were part of our collective life experiences. Sounds like a great memory… Thanks for sharing.
