Beverly Hills Cop III (1994)

It grieves me to no end that of the three movies, the third one is only entry I’ve seen on the big screen. I generally enjoy John Landis as a director (Animal House, The Blues Brothers, and American Werewolf in London are great, and Spies Like Us is agreeably entertaining), but the man is really, really not the guy who should have been at the helm here. To a certain extent, it’s more a John Landis comedy that happens to be a Beverly Hills Cop film than a Beverly Hills Cop film directed by John Landis.

Given Landis’ track record, this is not even close to being a good thing.
