Axel introduces himself at the gun club as "Richard James". This is a nod to Rick James, Eddie Murphy's musician friend who produced his 1986 album. See more »

[Axel sees Rosewood with a huge pistol]
Yo, man! What's that for?
After the shootout at the club, I figured I needed more firepower.
Yo man, we gotta talk, seriously. Who do you think you are, Clint Eastwood? Dirty Rosewood?

"Beverly Hills Cop II" is the entertaining sequel to the 1984 smash hit. Of course, this sequel can't top the original, but it's still pretty good. Eddie Murphy returns as Axel Foley and returns to Beverly Hills to help avenge the attack of a friend. This movie isn't as fresh as the original movie, but I found myself laughing alot throughout. Plus, the action scenes are well done. Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Ronny Cox, and Paul Reiser all reprise their roles from the first film along with Murphy. "Beverly Hills Cop II" is a movie that's loud and noisy at times, but it's funny and entertaining. And it's much better than the disappointing third movie in the series, "Beverly Hills Cop III".
