Film Brain: There's a crowd of people who saw your guards dicking with your machine that would like to disagree.

Film Brain: Flint has also arrived on the scene after Billy rung his pager earlier. That's right, he didn't hear the explosions or the UZI fire. This is a dumb movie.

[Billy faints; Axel and Flint laugh]

Film Brain: Ha ha ha, he's gonna die.

Film Brain: Eventually, Paramount brought the movie to the screen... in 1994. That's the movie's first real stumbling block. The Beverly Hills Cop movies were... old. I mean, the last one was seven years ago. Who did they expect would give a shit?

Film Brain: They're going in to arrest some car jacking mechanics who are... dancing to the Supremes?

["Come See About Me" plays and the mechanics dance]

Film Brain: Oh, good God. Already we see Landis' influence here, and it's woefully out of place. How about we have a fat mechanic do a hand-stand and stretch the joke to breaking point? It's just so wacky!

Todd: Axel, you on a coffee break? Go get that son of a bitch.

Film Brain: Then we cut to Todd's funeral. Are we supposed to take this seriously? The guy whose death we played for laughs five minutes ago? Look, you can't have it both ways, movie. Pick one and stick with it.

Film Brain: And a fight ensues as Billy arrives, and because the writer couldn't figure out what to do with Janice and Billy, locks them in the chamber for a bit. Now that's crappy writing.

Film Brain: Back on the ride, we get Axel and DeWald facing off. DeWald shoots Axel in the arm before they engage in some far-too-brutal fighting.

[DeWald slams Axel's head against the ride repeatedly]

Film Brain: Jesus, this is meant to be a comedy, right? I've seen less blood in real fights.
