“My truck. Here’s $50. Put it next to a limo.” – Axel Foley
Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (In Theater in 1987, cable, video, DVD, 30 Sep 2013)
Brief Synopsis – Axel Foley once again travels to Beverly Hills to help catch rich criminals in the act.
My Take on it – I saw this movie in the theater in the summer of ’87 and have fond memories of the experience since I hadn’t seen the original in the theater.
This movie isn’t as good as the first one, but it still was fun to once again visit with the characters and see how street smart cop Axel deals with being in uber-wealthy Beverly Hills.
Judge Reinhold and John Ashton are both fun again as the Laurel and Hardy team of Taggert and Rosewood and their ramblings helps make the movie more fun.
Nice seeing Chris Rock, and Gilbert Gottfried in small but funny roles.
Bottom Line – Not as much fun as the original, but still has enough laughs and action to work. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
