Why isn't this movie good? First of all, where's John Taggart ? He was always a great straight man to Murphy's Foley. Instead, they have him replaced with the concierge from pretty woman. Secondly, this is a John Landis movie? This is the worst... okay, the second worst thing he's ever done. Thirdly, where is all of Foley's fast talking? That was the whole crux of the first two movies. Finally, why didn't this movie come out on time in 1990 instead of 1994. That would have only been a short 3 year hop from Beverly Hills Cop 2 and Eddie Murphy would have still been trying at that point instead of making "Another 48 Hours."
The sad thing is that this could of been a good movie given a better script that was closer to the source material that would have retained John Taggart in its core cast. What happened?
