BHC 3 was seriously the worst film I have ever seen that wasn't a low-budget flick.

PC LOAD LETTER: BHC 3 was seriously the worst film I have ever seen that wasn't a low-budget flick.


I would argue that even the first one isn't all that great.  An entertaining movie worth watching, sure, but definitely not a classic.

This is GREAT news!

That 30-year lag time between movie and proposed series probably took some of the wind out of their sails.

PC LOAD LETTER: BHC 1,2 and 3 was wereseriously the worst films ever. I have ever seen that wasn't a low-budget flick.

So is subby saying it's asinine it wasn't picked up, or asinine that it was even considered a good idea?

It worked for Hawaii Five-0.  And Parenthood.  And you could argue the lag time for Grimm and Once Upon a Time is well above 100.

1 was great when it first came out, but it hasn't aged well.
2 wasn't great when it first came out.
3 I have managed to erase all memories of that. (and don't try reminding me, thanks).

Shawn Ryan + Barry Sonnenfeld + Eddie Murphy = too expensive in this market/economy

If CBS (nothing but cops & comedy shows) balks, then no one will take it

BHC 3 > BHC 2


They couldn't even match the sound, color temp, and lighting between conversation shots happening IN THE SAME SCENE. You could practically hear the director yell cut. You could feel that it was the 30th take and that EM was bored and tired. It was so. Fracking. Bad. 2 was bad, but 3 was some sort of twisted blasphemous monstrosity of cinema making.

I guess if you're using an American sense of history sure.  When I think timeless myth, I think Homer and the Bible, not someone who was alive the baby boomer's great grandparents.

Actually, for some reason, I've got the Fletch theme stuck in there right now.

I'll listen to some Al DiMeola later to get it out.

He wasn't referring to nationality, he was referring to time, as in "older than the US", i.e., timeless.

I think we're using a definition of timeless that is overly narrow. Yes, I believe that something that is only a couple centuries old can be considered timeless.

This. Timeless can, and usually means eternal or everlasting. "American sense of history" makes me laugh. XD

I don't think you can make a Beverly Hills Cop TV show worth watching that can still be shown on broadcast.  Better to move that thing to FX, HBO, or Netflix.

Then it would interest you to know that the first one was originally intended as a vehicle for Sylvester Stallone.

Before Stallone was attached to it, Mickey Rourke was signed up for it, but due to delays his contract expired and he dropped out.  The rewrites Stallone pushed for, wanting it to be "harder-edged", ended up becoming the film Cobra.

So he was right, it would have been a lame movie without Eddie.Cobra was a giant stinking turd.

But seriously, I couldn't imagine BHC without a comedian like Eddie Murphy in the lead. BHC would not have worked in the way they made it with Rourke or Stallone in the lead.

They should get Murphy for it but have him play the hard nosed police chief.
