"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.

Katsotut 2016 (214 movies items)

"Katsottu: 20.4.2016, rewatch, DVD Hyvä toimintakomedia. Nick Nolte ja Eddie Murphy ovat yllättävän hyvä parivaljakko. Huomasin myös että tässä ja Commandossa on lähes sama tunnusmusiikki. "
