Considered good in the 80's?? This was really entertaining-- far more entertaining then some of the shit that is blowing up at the box offices this week..

Judge Reinhold- staple to the 80's was quite the marks man. Murphy's laugh, gets me every time. And a killer soundtrack to boot.

Sure it can be predictable if you've seen as many movies as people who compulsively must icheck a movie after each viewing, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

One of greatest soundtracks to any movie ever, accompanied by some typical 80's action scenes. Great movie.

Even after seeing it countless times over the past 30years, watched it on tv while flipping channels and still holds up. Funny and exciting. One o the best 80ies movies

The only thing in this movies that has aged well is Eddie Murphy! The rest is mediocre at best.

Classic comedy thriller; funny, sweary, well paced, great characters, and driven by plot rather than action. 9/10.

An Eddy Murphy classic. The axel f soundtrack played during the numerous chase scenes helped to create a comedic effect which contributed to a 'good-feeling' movie.

With an Eddie Murphy career revival brewing, does Beverly Hills Cop still stand up? Surprisingly well, actually, give or take a couple of actors putting on gay voices for (ha!) comic effect. Murphy's Axel Foley is the Bugs Bunny of cops, a wiseass who can talk himself into and out of anything, a less macho and more humorous version of the "cop on the edge" trope, and while the crime plot he's in is pretty formulaic (right down to the really tedious gun fight climax), they don't overplay the fish out of water element of the Detroit cop in Beverly Hills. The posh, polite policemen who patrol the streets of the super-rich are naive compared to Axel, and there's a bit of a send-up there (and how weird is it to have Ronnie Cox in a movie NOT turn out to be a bad guy?), but it's mostly harmless fun. In fact, the movie smartly starts documentary style, with the real people of Detroit, to create a contrast with the movie and comedy shenanigans of the Californian material - Axel essentially pranking other cops and getting comedy types like Balky and Damon Wayans to do what he wants. The reality vs. fantasy aspect is subtle, maybe even under-exploited, but it's there. And what a fun soundtrack, almost every song a hit. The joke here is that the bad news is, they're all '80s hits, but I don't want to make it. While '80s music has been many a movie's downfall, Beverly Hills Cop's soundtrack and score actually works in its favor, a rare thing.

Wouldn't say that the third one is a must-see...the first two are though!
