Can't keep God waiting.
I don't want to hear that kind of talk, Sergeant.
Oh come on, Andy! He's fired every cop who used to work for the old chief! The three of us is all that's left!

Sequel to the hugely successful 1984 movies, this film was most unfairly slated by critics. I believe in some ways it is better than the original and certainly far, far better than the third installment. The story is, despite what everyone says, very engaging and keeps you watching the whole time. Eddie Murphy starred in Coming to America shortly after this, and then his career took a nosedive, although he seems to be making a comeback. If he is given more roles like this, he'll do better.
