If you get a chance please make sure to review, rate and share. You are awesome!

Mark and Norbert discuss the Beverly Hills Cop franchise and examine what made it such a blockbuster success. Directed by Martin Brest, and starring Eddie Murphy, Beverly Hills Cop (1984) was the highest grossing film of 1984 (it beat Ghostbusters, Temple of Doom, Gremlins), and it deservedly propelled Murphy into A-list superstardom because his performance as Axel Foley is perfection. The two sequels never achieved the same success, but they both cleared $100 million worldwide, and many consider Tony Scott’s Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) to be better than the original. In this episode, they talk about bananas, unnecessary car chases, and amusement parks. Enjoy!
