10 Best Cop Buddy Films
02. BEVERLY HILLS COP SERIES (1984, 1987, 1994)
Eddie Murphy masters the fish out of water portrayal in this classic trilogy as Det. Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who initially heads out to Beverly Hills “on vacation” to solve the murder of his old friend. Along the way the smart aleck cop annoys and eventually befriends local officers Det. Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and Sgt. John Taggart (John Ashton). The high stakes hijinks continue throughout the series as the cross-state cases and jokes become more intense.
