Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Beverly Hills Cop III continues Axel Foley's exploits in California and aims for a broader audience with its theme-park setting, lack of nudity, and toned-down profanity. Although the language is less varied and frequent than in the first two movies, it still includes "f--k" and "s--t." Violence shows realistic hand-fighting and gunshot wounds with blood. One disturbing scene shows a man being run over. Sexual content includes brief, mild flirtation and a scene with scantily clad models.

Is It Any Good?
BEVERLY HILLS COP III sports a slicker look, a veteran director of edgy comedy blockbusters (John Landis), and big-budget special effects; unfortunately, it also sports a duller Eddie Murphy. Without his rapid-fire, razor-sharp edge, the upgrades to the franchise aren't enough to overcome the weak story, predictable action, and weak supporting cast (Bronson Pinchot and Hector Elizondo provide a couple of bright spots).
Murphy's still good for some laughs, though they're mostly pretty corny. Kids will be drawn to the family-friendly, amusement-park setting, but the strong language and moderate violence make it most appropriate for older teens and up.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
