"Plus, Judge Reinhold is kinda cute."
4 stars

Hells yeah Axel Foley.

Eddie plays the now legendary Axel Foley. He's a good cop, but he causes a lot of trouble. His best friend gets knocked off, and he goes to California to investigate. As formulaic action flicks go, this is worth it.

Because, Eddie Murphy is funny. He really is. Well, he was back then. Not only is he funny, bt he can actually pull off the action stuff.

He was a hero before he picked upo transvestites and talked to the animals. And they say people don't change. pft. 4 sporks.
