Storyline

One night in Detroit, during a shoot-out at a chop shop, Detroit cop Axel Foley sees his boss, Inspector Douglas Todd, getting killed by a well dressed man. Using his last breath, Inspector Todd tells Axel to get the man who shot him, and Axel says that he will do that. Axel does some looking around, and finds the killer's vehicle at Wonder World, a theme park in Beverly Hills, California. In Beverly Hills, Axel is reunited with his friend Billy Rosewood, who tells Axel that John Taggart is now retired and living in Arizona. Billy is now the deputy director of operations for joint systems interdepartmental operational command (JSIOC). Billy also has a new partner named Jon Flint. Axel checks out Wonder World, which is owned by Dave "Uncle Dave" Thornton. At Wonder World, Axel rescues two kids who are stuck on a ride that broke down, and after this, Axel is taken to see the park's head of security, Ellis DeWald, and Axel recognizes DeWald as Inspector Todd's killer.

Trivia

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?
13 August 2000 | by (Mold,Wales) – See all my reviews

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.
