The heat is on in this fast paced action-comedy starring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a street smart Detroit cop tracking down his best friend's killer in Beverly Hills. Axel quickly learns that his wild style doesn't fit in with the Beverly Hills Police Department, which assigns two officers (Judge Reinhold & John Ashton) to make sure things don't get out of hand. Dragging the stuffy detectives along for the ride, Axel smashes through a huge culture clash in his hilarious, high-speed pursuit of justice. Axel Foley (Murphy) is back-back where he doesn't belong! He's going "deep, deep, deep undercover" into the chic wilds of Southern California, unleashing his arsenal of blazing gunfire and rapid-fire gags against a gang of international munitions smugglers. Back, too, are Judge Reinhold and John Ashton as Murphy's crime-busting sidekicks. And Top Gun's director Tony Scott keeps the pace fast, furious and funny. This time, superstar Murphy comes up with the best showcase yet for Axel's comedic, rapid fire bravado. His determined pursuit of ruthless killers, with a little help from old pals Serge (Bronson Pinchot) and Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold), leads him to LA's popular theme park, WonderWorld. Suddenly, Axel is the park's hottest new attraction, whether it's dangling from the giant Spider ride to rescue a child or going deep, deep, deep undercover as Okey Dokey, a seven-foot blue elephant.
