Remember when Eddie Murphy was funny and didn't make family fare shlock? I don't think I've seen this since the mid to late 90s, but the idea holds up pretty well even if the direct references to the time period don't. (lulz at the idea of a Wall Street Trader making "only" $80k today)
I dunno... the other half and I watched all three Beverly Hills Cops not too long ago. The first one actually still holds up as quite an enjoyable movie. The others... well, they're sequels. At least they're still funny Eddie Murphy, as compared to what he's become.
