- First line of business is to thank Dr. O. for creating this thread for me. As all his threads are, this one is both informational & entertaining.
-Second line of business is to talk about Eddie Murphy. VH1 was playing Beverly Hills Cop I & II back to back today. He was in his prime when he made both films and it was fun entertainment. He carried the films, but it was the supporting actors that brought some of the best comedic moments.
Judge Reinhold as Det. William 'Billy' Rosewood, Ronny Cox as Lt. Andrew Bogomil
Just good entertainment!!!
- Eddie Murphy Raw is a 1987 American stand-up comedy film starring Eddie Murphy and directed by Robert Townsend. It was Murphy's second feature stand-up comedy film, following Eddie Murphy Delirious.
If you are not offended with warnings of very adult language and content, it is hilarious. Again, he was
in his prime, both physically & artistically. Grab a beer, sit back and be entertained...
