I haven't seen a BHC movie in years, does the 1980s comedy still hold up?

What a great way to ruin the legacy of a great movie. Although BHC 3 has already played a hand in that.

Hold on guys. I feel it will be brilliant. That charachter never gets old. It is one of those that if it is on, all three, I stop and look. plus Murphy is too sharp to do it and let it fail.

As long as they remember that Foley is a cop who thinks outside the box and not an asterik with a badge, I have no problem.

This won't go well.

It's odd to think that the last time Eddie Murphy had a good movie, most of America had no idea what grunge was.

'Beverly Hills Cop' Series Still Happening, Now with 'The Shield' Creator

Eddie Murphy's mention of a Beverly Hills Cop television series was not just talk (in the familiar voice of a CGI donkey). It's apparently really happening, and now Sony Pictures and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan are involved.

According to Vulture, Sony, Murphy and Ryan already began pitching the show to the broadcast networks yesterday afternoon, with the idea still, as previously described by Murphy, focusing on Axel Foley's son serving the Detroit PD under the supervision of his now-police chief father. The format is said to be a police procedural, buddy cop show "with strong comedic elements," and Murphy has agreed to appear in the pilot and "possibly a few special episodes throughout the first season" as a recurring reminder of that halcyon time before anyone ever thought, "Hey, now Axel's SON should be a cop who ALSO goes to Beverly Hills!" Which, speaking of that: Axel's son will go to Beverly Hills, right? Because otherwise this is just Detroit Cop.

C'mon Axel as the yelling black chief?
Hilarious hell, Serge could be written into scripts.
