Beverly Hills Cop II

Beverly Hills Cop II

While its sequels were formulaic and safe, the first Beverly Hills Cop set out to explore some uncharted territory, and succeeded. A blend of violent action picture and sharp comedy, the film has an excellent director, Martin Brest (Scent of a Woman), who finds some original perspectives on stock scenes (highway chases, police rousts) and hits a gleeful note with Murphy while skewering L.A. culture. Good support from Judge Reinhold and John Ashton as local cops not used to doing things the Detroit way (Murphy's character hails from the Motor City). Paul Reiser has a funny, brief moment at the beginning, and Bronson Pinchot makes a hilarious impression in a great, never-to-be-duplicated scene with the star. --Tom Keogh

Chief Lutz:
What the hell have you done here? Looks like a goddamn war zone. What in the hell have you done, Taggart? Tell me.

Billy Rosewood:
We solved the Alphabet crimes.

Chief Lutz:
You shut up! Who the hell is talking to you? I personally solved the Alphabet case up in a body bag over an hour ago. [to Axel] And you, I don't give a goddamn what agency you say you're working for, you're in jail, buddy.

Billy Rosewood:
Chief, wait a...

Chief Lutz:
SHUT UP! What the hell do you think you're doing, bringing a fire fight in the middle of my city? You're out of the cop business for good, forever!

Billy Rosewood:
Will you just listen a minute?

Chief Lutz:
Shut up! You shut your mouth once and for all!

Billy Rosewood:
NO GODDAMN IT, YOU SHUT UP! This is what the Alphabet crimes are all about... guns!

Chief Lutz:
Guns?

Billy Rosewood:
[points to Nikos Thomopolis, who is being arrested] That guy sold them, and Dent bought 'em with stolen money from Adriano's at his own racetrack. He was on his way to Central America. And if you'd bothered to take your head out of your ass, YOU'D SEE WE SOLVED THE WHOLE GODDAMN THING! [Another officer Simultaneously hands Mayor Egan Thomopolis' note book and the Mayor looks at them]

Chief Lutz:
You watch yourself.

Mayor Egan:
Just a minute. Lutz. [Looks at the notes again] Why didn't I know about this?

John Taggart:
Because Chief Lutz doesn't have the guts to hear the truth from real cops. That's why we had to go undercover with Detective Foley to solve this case.

Chief Lutz:
That cuts it Taggart, You're fired!

John Taggart:
Yeah? Kiss my ass!

Chief Lutz:
KISS MINE! You're fired, too!

Mayor Egan:
Lutz...

Chief Lutz:
Isn't that right?

Mayor Egan:
I think I've just about had it with your abusive attitude.

Chief Lutz:
I'm sorry, I get carried away, I'm sorry.

Mayor Egan:
You're fired. Do you understand that?

Chief Lutz:
Don't overreact Ted, Please.

Mayor Egan:
You're fired. I want you out of here now. Get out of here! Fired!

Chief Lutz:
You'll regret this, Ted!

Mayor Egan:
I regret it. Now I've regretted it for the last two months. [Turns to Lutz's Assitant]

Harold Lutz:
You'll regret this! [Simultaneously]

Mayor Ted Egan:
You're fired too, You're out of here, get out of here. [Simultaneously]

Henry Biddle:
Aw I didn't do anything. I didn't... I didn't do anything. [Simultaneously]

Mayor Ted Egan:
Will you get out? Get out! [Simultaneously]

Axel Foley:
Are they civilians now?

Mayor Ted Egan:
You bet.

Axel Foley:
I'm gonna kick your ass later!

Mayor Ted Egan:
Axel, thank you so much, really. I've gotta go to a charity meeting, food for the homeless for Beverly Hills. But Tomorrow...

Axel Foley:
Oh. Food for the Homeless Wait a second, I'd like to make a donation sir. Here's $200 in the name of Sidney Bernstein. That's my alias. I don't like a lot of publicity.

Mayor Ted Egan:
Thank you, Axel... I mean, Sidney Bernstein. Thank you, gentlemen very much.

Detective Billy Rosewood:
Thank you, sir.

Mayor Ted Egan:
Thank you.

Axel Foley:
"If you get your head out of your ass long enough"? "Kiss my ass"? You're getting more and more like me every day. Next thing you know, you're gonna have afros... Big dicks and all.
