Beverly Hills Cop 1984

From Amazon: While its sequels were formulaic and safe, the first Beverly Hills Cop set out to explore some uncharted territory, and succeeded. A blend of violent action picture and sharp comedy, the film has an excellent director, Martin Brest (Scent of a Woman), who finds some original perspectives on stock scenes (highway chases, police rousts) and hits a gleeful note with Murphy while skewering L.A. culture.

Beverly Hills Cop Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/21/2007)

I don't really get why this is such a classic. I mean, sure it introduced Eddie Murphy as a movie star, but it just ain't all that funny.
