Beverly Hills Cop ★★★★

The original and the best.

Beverly Hills Cop broke out of development hell having been passed by Sly Stallone and finding its way into Eddie Murphy's lap, and thank God it did as when compared to Sly (with his Rocky and Rambo series) and others, Murphy made for THE most likeable film series character of the 80s. Just a shame the two sequels decreased the quality - though, that said, Beverly Hills Cop 2 is, in my opinion, unfairly maligned.
