More Trivia from Beverly Hills Cop II


In BEVERLY HILLS COP II, Eddie Murphy is back as Axel Foley, the resourceful Detroit detective who doesn't exactly play by the rules.

When his friend from the first "Beverly Hills Cop" picture, Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil (Ronny Cox), is wounded in an event related to mysterious "alphabet crimes," Foley hightails it to California and hooks up again with officers Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton) in an effort to stop the robberies.

But they have to deal with an abusive new Lieutenant Harry Lutz (Allen Garfield). Along the way, their investigation into the crimes leads them to a strip club, the Playboy mansion, and even a racetrack.

Director Tony Scott's ("CRIMSON TIDE", "TOP GUN") film offers a wild ride as Foley talks his way into and out of various scenarios.

Watch for comedian Chris Rock's feature-film debut in his brief appearance as the parking valet and for Paul Reiser as Jeffrey Freidman, Axel's partner in Detroit.

Not as good as the first "Beverly Hills Cop"Beverly Hills Cop", but it is a good sequel and way better than the third installment.

Basically this movie is almost a rehash of the first one but it was brilliantly shot and the action scenes are my favourite action scenes of all time.

An amazing movie. Well made. Great action, great performances by Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold
Not quite as good as the first one
