When Axel returns to his apartment to find Mikey waiting for him, he parks on a grade steep enough to cause his car to roll backwards. No hill in Detroit is that steep. In 1984, Detroit police were required to live within city limits. See more »

Why are you telling me this? What makes you think I have any interest in that at all?
Well, you eat a lot of red meat.

Eddie Murphy became a true bankable superstar with "Beverly Hills Cop". The film is an unconventional detective story that has Murphy, a Detroit police officer, go to Beverly Hills after his close friend is killed. Murphy wants to find out who killed his friend and why. What he discovers is one of the largest illegal drug fronts around in an art museum. Now it is up to Murphy to bring down the bad guys and save the day. "Beverly Hills Cop" is a film that showed the greatness of the 1980s. A pop-culture, box office hit that was funny and full of action and sported a smashing soundtrack. A nice film that is one of the most memorable money-makers of the decade that was the 80s. 4 stars out of 5.
