Third installment loses edge; less sex but lots of swearing.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

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.
