Beverly Hills Cop | 1984 | Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold,

Eddie Murphy stars as streetwise Detroit cop Axel Foley in this 80s mainstream classic. Foley tracks his friend’s killer to Beverly Hills where, despite his lack of status, he teams up with grumpy Sergeant Taggart (John Ashton) and eager Detective Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) to pin the rap on bigwig Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff). Martin Brest’s mix of action and comedy, driven by Murphy’s motormouth, deservedly broke box-office records at the time.
