Storyline

Three years after the events in Beverly Hills Cop (1984), the street-wise Detroit detective, Axel Foley, invades the posh city once more, after the assassination attempt on Captain Andrew Bogomil. Against the backdrop of a seemingly endless string of violent and well-orchestrated smash-and-grab robberies known as the "Alphabet Crimes", Detectives Billy Rosewood and John Taggart struggle to solve the case; nevertheless, in vain. Now, a lethally beautiful hitwoman linked to an international arms trafficking ring is the mysterious and elusive prime suspect. Can the brazen and sassy Axel and his partners solve this thorny case, too? Written by Nick Riganas

Alternate Versions

In Ontario, the film was rated Restricted, which meant that no one under 18 could attend. In hopes of reaching a wider audience in the province, Paramount appealed the rating and asked that it be reduced to Adult Accompaniment (under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian). The Ontario Censor Board agreed to their request as long as the line "She can suck a golf ball through twenty feet of garden hose" was removed. The studio made the cut and the rating was changed from R to AA. The line remained in the subsequent video release. See more »

Pretty Good
15 March 2003 | by shakey_jake53See all my reviews

I finally saw this sequel and it was better than what many people say. Murphy has some very hilarious moments and Reinhold and Ashton were just as good. Also, the action scene's were decent too, though the chase with the cement truck was'nt as good as the chase in the first with the transport truck. I did notice that the film lacked the freshness of the first one but still it was fun to watch.
