On the preview, Taggart tells Axel "You've stolen this house." Axel, sitting on a chair in the pool replies, "How do you steal a house? This is my uncle's house." In the movie, Axel's reply was, "How the f*** do you steal a house. This is...uh...my uncle's house." The framing was also different on this shot. The TV version used the preview edit rather than censoring the film version. See more »
excellent sequel, with plenty of action, and funny jokes/improves by murphy and his cast, to make this a fun sequel!
this was an excellent sequel to the classic 1984 film. eddie is back, but, he is back where he was in the first movie, this time is not out for revenge for his criminal friend, but for her captain bogomil (ronny cox) of the beverly hills ploice department, who is suspended from ploice work, while working on a case known as the alphabet crimes. by a gang of international jewelry, money and weapon smugglers. led by german actor Jurgen prochnow, and bridgitte nielsen, who is ruthless as the leader of the smuggling gang. axel travels back to beverly hills, to hunt down his friends hitman, who shot him. also returning is john ashton as sgt. taggert, and judge reinhold as billy rosewood. teaming up to look for the criminals. but, what makes there mission impossible, is the abusive, new beverly hills chief played by veteran character actor allen garfield. who thinks, the whole mission is uneccessary for the heroes to go after. for this sequel, i like it how the director tony scott, brother of director ridley scott, switched scene to scenes, between the hilarious detroit scenes with inspector todd (gil hill) and jeffrey (paul reiser) who had a scene in the first movie, to be showing off their hilarious talent in this movie. you also get to see more of those guys, cause you only got to see them for a short time in the first. they have bigger funnier parts. jeffrey is asked by axel to watch overe his ferrari while he is gone. then, todd is funny. this film also features more very funny new jokes by murphy, and ashton and reinhold's characters seem to have a much better sense of humor in this movie, then the first. this movie was violent, furious like the first.little more explosions, and gun fight scenes then the first too. it was very funny to see so many improvisations by murphy. much more than the original. the cameos in the film, by chris rock, gilbert gottfried were hilarious. this marked as rocks first major movie. serge from the first was not in this sequel though. the scene in rosewood's house was hilarious. then, how they get his name wrong, rosemound, roseweed. harold faltermeyer comes back to do the musical score. and jerry bruckheimer for the producing. this film was wonderful! great sequel!! this was the last beverly hills cop film of the 80's following 1994's beverly hills cop 3. last movie for john ashton, ronny cox, paul reiser to be in this movie. cause they were not in the third. and for producer jerry bruckheimer, and composer harold faltermeyer. and, last one to have most explosions, big bad mild language, sexual material and most of the supporting cast in the first, and this one who do not return in the 3 movie for over 7 years later. few 80's celebrities, in this film, and laughs to be enjoyed for quite while.
