Is It Any Good?

Kids say (5):

When BEVERLY HILLS COP II was made, Eddie Murphy was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and it's easy to see why. Although most of the humor comes from the almost nonstop foul language, Murphy's fast-talking charm is dazzling. The plot is weaker than the first movie -- expect your eyes to glaze over when insurance fraud comes up -- with more holes to overlook. The soundtrack's a little flatter too. Fans who enjoyed the first movie will find more of the same to enjoy. Still not for kids.
