Before long, Axel and his unorthodox methods unearth the lucrative drug operation of the powerful local crime kingpin, Victor Maitland; however, Foley, too, will find himself in deep trouble, as Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil wants him out of town. Now, Axel will have to team up with Detectives, John Taggart, and Billy Rosewood, to shed light on the thick conspiracy, and finish what he has started. Will Foley’s total disregard for proper procedure bear fruit?
Plot: The heat is on in this fast paced action-comedy starring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a street smart Detroit cop tracking down his best friend’s killer in Beverly Hills. Axel quickly learns that his wild style doesn’t fit in with the Beverly Hills Police Department, which assigns two officers (Judge Reinhold & John Ashton) to make sure things don’t get out of hand. Dragging the stuffy detectives along for the ride, Axel smashes through a huge culture clash in his hilarious, high-speed pursuit of justice. Featuring cameos by Paul Reiser, Bronson Pinchot and Damon Wayans, Beverly Hills Cop is an exhilarating, sidesplitting adventure.

Has come down as one of the Eddie Murphy classics.
Eddie Murphy was only 23 during filming. This movie was released in late 1984 and I first watched it in the theater in 1985.
The story starts in Detroit where Murphy is police detective Axel Foley, always a bit nonconforming and seemingly always on the verge of losing his job. When an old friend shows up from California and is promptly murdered in what looked like a professional hit job, Foley takes it personally and vows to solve the crime.
Since he can’t do anything officially he takes his vacation and drives to California in his beat up car. Using his own unique methods, often not sanctioned by the police departments, he digs in to find the crooked smuggling operation.
I just rewatched it on DVD from my public library, part of a six DVD “binge box” of Murphy movies. Most of the movie was pretty fresh after all these years but the one scene I remembered well, and I suspect most do, is where he used bananas up the tailpipe to stall out the car of the cops who had been assigned to tail him.
A very good movie for Eddie Murphy fans, but be prepared for lots of F-bomb language. For 1984 it is a lot.
