Continuity: When Foley fires his gun in the park he says, "I'll put my gun down. I put it down on the ground and I'm unarmed." But later in the footage of him on the TV he says, "I'm putting my gun down, I'm putting it down on the ground and I'm not armed."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.

Eddie Murphy's unsatisfying turning point, 13 September 2001
Author: Mika Pykäläaho ( from Järvenpää, Finland

I think "Beverly Hills cop III" was an extremely regrettable turning point in the nice career of one of the most talented and funniest black comedians Hollywood has ever seen - Mr. Eddie Murphy. Before it he used to be funny or at least much funnier. He appeared in the rather enjoyable flicks like "48 Hrs.", "Coming to America", "Another 48 Hrs.", "The Distinguished gentleman", "Boomerang" and of course "Beverly Hills cop I & II" - two beloved movies that'll always be his very best works.

Then someone decided to add part three in the so far terrific "Beverly Hills cop" saga. This time Axel Foley was on the mission of revenge and the comedy was unfortunately replaced by action. Who forgot that most of the glamour behind these movies came directly from the humor? Even though John Landis - the man behind hit comedies like "The Blues Brothers" and "Three Amigos!" - sat in the director's chair the end result just wasn't that funny anymore or at least it was funny very rarely and that's a bad thing if we compare part three to its absolutely hilarious precursors. ...and as it happened, after "Beverly Hills cop III" Eddie Murphy got roles from the movies like "Vampire in Brooklyn" (with only couple of excellent scenes), "Metro" (that apparently wasn't supposed to be funny in the first place), "Doctor Dolittle" (cute little film for kiddies who love furry animals that talk), "Holy man" (interesting but more confusing than amusing) and "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps" (definitely one of his worst movies, waste of his undisputed talents and a model example of a comedy that doesn't make you laugh).

Lately I saw "Life" and surprisingly it was pretty brilliant and alongside with fairly good "Bowfinger" it's the only completely clear exception in this course. What I'm saying is, "Beverly Hills cop III" started it all. Was it all just a coincidence or was it meant to be that Eddie Murphy's best years were in the 80's and early 90's? I can't tell. This is just the way I see things.
