Did You Know?

Production was temporarily shut down to allow the Paramount top brass the chance to get to grips with the film's spiraling budget. Originally estimated at $55 million, it was soon in excess of $70 million. Of that budget, $15 million was Eddie Murphy's paycheck.See more »
Continuity: When Foley first sees the room where the counterfeit money is being printed, De Wald sees his full body reflection in the mirror. But clearly the mirror is not at such an angle to see Foley's full body, maybe just his feet.See more »
Jon Flint:Look, isn't it just possible that you're mistaken, Foley? That Ellis Dewald just resembles Todd's killer?
Axel:I made the guy in Detroit. It was Dewald.
Jon Flint:I mean, Dewald is the head of the largest private police department in Southern California. I mean, he works with us! With the L.A.P.D. Hell, with the governor's office! Everybody loves him.
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood:He's even getting an award tonight from the National Association of Security Agencies.
Jon Flint:Axel, it's understandable that you're distraught and-and looking for justice, and not to mention revenge. But, isn't it just possible that you - that you want it so much, that you saw your killer in a man who bore a slight resemblance?
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood:Hell, we run into this all the time in police work, Axel.
Axel:Where's Dewald getting that award tonight?
Jon Flint:Axel, don't.
Axel:Hey Flint, your friend Dewald it foul, okay? I know he's foul and I'm goin' down to this award show tonight and I'm gonna put some pressure on him and maybe I'll panic him into doing something stupid.
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood:Axel, if you go to that dinner tonight... I'm going with you.

more comedy, but still good, 14 March 2002
Author: MichaelM24 from California

The thing I like about the BEVERLY HILLS COP movies is that each one is a little different. The first has a nice balance between comedy and seriousness, the second is a little more darker, and the third is a bit more on the lighter side. I've always wanted to see an action movie make good use of an amusement park. Not just a one-scene visit or something, but a film that actually shows us the "inside story" of one, exploring the control rooms and the underground workings. BEVERLY HILLS COP 3 did just that. The opening sequence in Detroit gets the film off to a good start with a shocking and unexpected moment, which prompts Axel to return once again to the land of Beverly Hills. Once things get going, it's clear to see that this is a different film from the others in terms of how much comedy there is.

Bronson Pinchot's Serge returns in a funny scene, but John Ashton (and Ronny Cox) are absent this time around, Det. Taggart having retired. Judge Reinhold is back, and Hector Elizondo is on board. Not quite as good as Ashton, but he does the job. Timothy Carhart makes the perfect slimeball criminal, and Alan Young (Scrooge McDuck himself) is a pleasure as Uncle Dave, the owner of the Wonderworld amusement park. My favorite sequence involves Axel rescuing two kids from a malfunctioning ride. Man, where did they find that crazy stuntman? Just watch the scene and you'll see what I mean when I say that was one crazy guy. It would have been nice had Disney allowed them to use Disneyland as the park, but (since they didn't want their park to be associated with an R-rated movie) Paramount had to find another place, and what better to use than a park you already own? Paramount's Great America, located in Santa Clara, California, was a terrific stand-in for Wonderworld. Local residents who have been there countless times (like myself) will have fun pointing at things and saying, "That's not there."

And don't forget to keep an eye out for all those cameos. That's special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen at the bar, director Joe Dante as a jail cop, and George Lucas himself as the angry park visitor Axel cuts in front of. Still not as good as the first one, a little more enjoyable than the second, but still a fun movie.
