Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #63: Beverly Hills Cop III

Hey, everyone! Welcome to my 63rd edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series! I’m really sorry for the lateness of this edition. I was hoping to have it online at the end of August as planned but after the Melbourne International Film Festival was over, I went on an impromptu holiday and then went straight back to work once I got back. So I didn’t have time to do it until now. As you already know last month here on, I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. For this 63rd instalment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… BEVERLY HILLS COP III! Did this film really ruin the once promising BEVERLY HILLS COP franchise? Whose idea was it to set it at amusement park? Read on and find out! Enjoy!

I know I’ve said this many, many, MANY times before but I’m going to say it again, is it too late for me to *not* watch this film?

Just like the train that we’re seeing at the beginning of this film, this film for a lot of people is a bit of a train wreck.

Oh, Eddie Murphy. It’s clear with the look of your face that you so don’t want to be here.

Ahhh… Why are these mechanics doing a literal musical number right now?

Man, that one mechanic’s hairdo is just simply bizarre. The ‘90s were a very weird time.

I like how that one guy gets shot by a pistol and the blast from it sends him literally flying across the room.

Is it just me or does one of the bad guy’s henchman look like David Cronenberg?

“Axel, are you on a coffee break? Go get that son of a bitch” Okay, say what you about this film, but those were some pretty cool final words for someone to say before they die.

You want to know how you can tell that you’re watching a John Landis film? That’s lots and lots of car crashes in it.

Oh, hi Stephen McHattie!

Geez, Jon Tenny has very big eyebrows. They look like caterpillars. I shouldn’t judge ‘cause I have eyebrows almost like that too lol.

Yep, it’s official. No matter how many times I hear it, the BEVERLY HILLS COP theme will always be awesome.

Judge Reinhold! The unsung hero of this series.

“Where’s Taggert? “He’s retitled” Shhh… That’s code for, “he didn’t want to come back for this sequel”.

Oh, Wonder World. You’re such a knock off of Disney Land.

I like how Axel is outraged by having to pay $35 to get inside Wonder World when it seems pretty reasonable to me since it covers everything.

Geez, security at Wonder World is a bit lacklustre if anyone can just walk into the security area like Axel did without any problems.

Oh, please. This Alien Attack ride is just the Earthquake ride at Universal Studios with robots added to it. In fact that’s what it actually is too.

You want to know another you can tell you’re watching John Landis film? Lots of celebrity cameos ‘cause George Lucas just showed up.

Ahhh… Did that you train just let out a scream when it got trampled on?!

Oh, geez. This scene with the ferris wheel spinning out of control is one of my worst nightmares come to life 😬

Say what you will about this film again, but the stunt work in this scene is pretty impressive.

I swear that ferris wheel carriage is made out of cardboard when it hit the ground.

John Saxon: absolute legend.

Yeah… Billy & Flint are totally gas lighting Axel right now.

Oh, man. Every time that BHC themes plays, I gotta dance.

I like how Axel is totally geeking out when he is meeting Uncle Dave. It’s pretty charming.

Oh, hi Serge! We haven’t seen you since the first film.

I don’t know how Serge went from running an art gallery to selling guns but whatever.

Geez… I don’t know if this Annihilatior 2000 gun is amazing or a NRA member’s wet dream of a gun.

“Sylvester Stallone ordered 20 of these” That’s a stone cold lie, Serge! Everyone knows that Stallone is anti-gun guy and is for gun control! He would never buy them.

So… All the underprivileged kids that are featured at this event are all boys. Not a single girl in sight. I’ll let you draw your conclusions there.

Ahhh… Why is Billy hiding behind a bush?

Oh, hi Joe Dante! Nice to see that you have a cameo in this film as well.

This scene at the beach would be 10 times better if David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson showed up as their characters from BAYWATCH in a cameo.

“You have a $50 bill?” “I have a wife and kids, I haven’t seen a $50 bill in years” Okay, you have to admit, that’s a pretty funny line.

Omg! It’s the Grandma from DON’T BE A MENACE TO SOUTH CENTRAL…!

You know Axel, maybe it would have been a good idea if you brought a spy camera to take pictures of all these criminal activities are going on so everyone will believe you when you say that they are happening.

Oh, geez. These henchman must be pretty daring if they’re willing shoot Axel While there are tonnes of witnesses around at Wonder World.

Sorry for the lack of tweets, nothing really interesting is happening at the moment. Why am I not surprised?

OMG they shot Uncle Dave! You bastards!

I like how there are many different variations of the BHC theme throughout the film.

You know this whole crime would have been solved very quickly if Axel had a banana to shove into a exhaust pipe.

Geez, there’s a lot of sparks in this shoot out between Axel and the bad guys.

I find it amazing that Axel can carry that Annihilator 2000 gun pretty easily. You would think from the looks of it, it would be a lot heavier.

Well… After all that set up, the Annihilator 2000 gun was barely even used. Figures.

Oh, hi John Singleton!

Hmmm… I wonder what this sequel would have been like if Sylvester Stallone ended up playing Axel Foley instead Eddie Murphy at the beginning of this series.

Ahhh… When did Axel find the time to create that fake money and put his face on it?

Yeah, the henchman must’ve went to the same gun training school as the Stromtroopers from STAR WARS ‘cause they can barely hit anything.

I wonder if this Dinosaur section of the ride was included in the climax of the film due to JURASSIC PARK coming out the year before?

So… Stephen McHattie’s FBI agent was working for the bad guys all along? Why am I not surprised?

Yeah! Uncle Dave is alive!

Man, I hope I save someone who runs an amusement park’s life someday so I can get a cartoon character created after me.

Wait, a minute! Hold the phone! This film was written by the guy who wrote DIE HARD and COMMANDO and directed STREET FIGHTER: THE MOVIE? My God…

Well, that’s the end of the film. While I don’t think this sequel is as bad everyone says it is, I can still definitely see why it’s considered the weakest one in the serious and why we still haven’t seen a BEVERLY HILLS COP IV yet.

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 63rd edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out later in September for my 64th edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad films: THE CAT IN THE HAT, CROSSROADS or GAMER. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
