An enjoyable classic action comedy!

"This sucks! A maniac gets ahold of my gun and runs all over the streets killin' people with it. So, instead of bein' where I oughta be, home in bed with my gal givin' her the high hard one, I'm out here doin' THIS shit: roamin' around the streets with an overdressed, charcoal-colored loser like you."

A good movie

By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (I think I miss only 4 movies). The weird thing is that I'm not even a huge fan of this guy but his movies very often come up on the various Dutch channels so I always end up checking them, out of sheer curiosity of boredom. Nowadays, he shows up in the most inane features and his career doesn't have much credibility. Still, the guy ... read more

25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"This film is often credited as the one that started the trend for the modern "buddy cop" movie that took over theaters thru-out the 80's & early 90's. And as the one that set the standard for the story of how two completely different cops from different backgrounds must learn to work together to solve a crime. And even though Eddie Murphy's character isn't a cop in this movie, it's still okay, since this film's director, Walter Hill, isn't really a hill. "

Movies the giraffe watched: November 2013 (18 movies items)

"Re-watch - Nov. 3rd Actually I should probably count this one as a first viewing instead of a re-watch. I vaguely recall this movie being on at a friend's house when I was younger, but the only thing that stuck with me was the scene in the subway; and even then that scene & the rest of the film was completely unfamiliar to me as I watched it this time. So "re-watch" is misleading I guess. Anyway, I really enjoyed this one. Murphy & Nolte have great chemistry on screen and there are some very f"

Old Franchises That Can Still Be Revived (7 movies items)

" 48 Hrs. only spawned one sequel, and it wasn't good at all. It felt perfunctory, to be honest, as if everyone was just doing it for the sake of a payday. Imagine what could happen if Eddie Murphy, Nick Nolte and Walter Hill actually put their heart into another sequel... They could all use another hit, for sure. Chances It'll Happen? 3/10"

"13.06.2013 "Class isn't something you buy. Look at you, you've got on a 500-dollar suit and you're still a low-life." "Yeah, but I look good." Classic Eddie Murphy right here. I miss the days when he was the funniest man in Hollywood. He has not made a really funny movie since Bowfinger and that really makes me sad. "

A good movie

“By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (I think I miss only 4 movies).

Nowadays, he shows up in the most inane features and his career doesn't have much credibility. Still, the guy has made a few good movies, especially in the 80's, and this flick is definitely one of them. Basically, it is one of your typical buddy action flick with a tough cop (played by Nick Nolte) and a clueless civilian (played by Eddie Murphy). To be honest, the whole thing was not really original but they used very well the rules of the formula and the whole thing was just really entertaining and pret” read more

"Neither jokes nor fast, flashy action can completely distract audiences from the failure to establish an authentic, rather than a purely conventional connection between Nolte and Murphy. - Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine"
