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 »

Good sequel
29 September 2008 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Eddie Murphy stars in Beverly Hills Cop II.I think the first one was a tad bit better than this, but not by much.I think this is a great sequel.Eddie Murphy is funny as usual and so is Judge Reinhold.It also stars Brigitte Nielson and there is even a small cameo from Chris Rock.The film has Axel Foley returning to solve another murder with the help of his two friends from the first film.I think Beverly Hills Cop II is a good sequel to a good action/comedy film and I recommend it if you enjoyed the first one.
