3:17 Loving the burly mechanics doing their version of The Supremes.
9:35 Aw, the angry boss man.
12:03 This car chase is incredibly fun but not so believable.
17:40 Aww, yay, Rosewood is a Sgt!
24:17 Woohoo, corporate offices in a bunker.
28:23 What was his plan going up in the ride though? They’d just be waiting for him at the bottom.
37:00 No way are they called the National Association of Security Agencies.
39:01 “I have no doubts, nor do I have any ideas.”
40:39 Oh phew, it’s NASPA.
54:12 I knew rollerblading was popular but they have their own skate lane!
57:00 No way has he snuck in as an elephant. So cute!
1:05:40 Mr C just absolutely jumped out of his skin at that gunshot. More than he did in FIVE Scream movies.
1:13:08 “So you were carrying around the evidence in your pocket the whole time, huh Sherlock?”
1:21:33 Serge to the rescue!
1:31:19 Weird that he could break the glass with the chair… why didn’t he just do that in the first place?


This is such a weird film, it feels like it was so long since the previous two that they’ve completely forgotten what those movies were. This was a good enough movie in it’s own right, quite funny in places and some enjoyable action sequences, but it was completely different to the earlier Beverly Hills Cop movies and didn’t have whatever it was that made them special.

It was super frustrating that the bad guys seemed suddenly to forget how to shoot - and not just that, they couldn’t hit a target from a pace away with machine guns, whilst the good guys could swing wildly and get a dead on kill shot. Madness.

Rating: 3 / 5
