Beverly Hills Cop
We've all been on a pub crawl, right? Well get ready for a Podcrawl! Instead of hopping from one bar to the next, the idea is to move from podcast to podcast in order to cover all three Beverly Hills Cop movies. It kicks off right here with the HDYR gang tackling the original. From there, Does It Have Legs? picks up the baton to talk about Beverly Hills Cop II. And then Proudly Resents brings it home with a discussion about Beverly Hills Cop III.
Topics include: the long and complicated history of this project and the different iterations that almost wound up on screen, Eddie Murphy's surprisingly understated performance, the way the sequels betray certain characters in some ways, how pitch-perfect the Detroit scenes are and why everything gets a little murkier once it moves to Beverly Hills, action scenes that are slightly lackluster even for 1984 and the key ingredient we think might be missing, some thoughts on the potential future of this franchise, and much much more!
Huge thanks to Adam from Proudly Resents for reaching out and putting this Podcrawl together!
