When John Ashton was unable to reprise his role of Taggart, his part was re-written as John Flint (Hector Elizondo) and dialog was inserted to explain that Taggart had retired and moved to Phoenix. Ronny Cox was also unable to reprise his role of Bogomil due to commitments to other projects, however his absence is never addressed in this movie, nor is he mentioned at any point. Both Ashton and Cox due have subtle cameos in this movie, in the form of a picture on Rosewood's desk of Foley, Taggart, Rosewood, and Bogomil on a fishing trip. This is the very same picture which also appeared in Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) on Bogomil's and Foley's desks. See more »

Why does everyone consider this movie to be so bad?
I would just like to say that this is a VERY VERY good movie along with the other 2 Beverley hills cop movies. The 1st 2 are definately far superior to Beverley Hills Cop 3, but never the less this movie is still very good.
The return of Serge is a god move as it brings back plenty of laughs and the use of a theme park is also a very good move as not many films use a hideout which is family orientated.
This film is hilarious and if anyone disagrees then please e-mail me.
