“Beverly Hills Cop 3” Eddie Murphy

“Beverly Hills Cop 3” Eddie Murphy

beverly-hills-cop-3Eddie Murphy takes the check and phones it in in this unnecessary follow up to an unnecessary follow up of “Beverly Hills Cop”! I chose this movie because my brother Mike Spiegelman is obsessed with it. He talks about it all the time. So he’s here to talk about why he loves it so much.

This is the third part of a three part #podcrawl! It started with “Hey, Do You Remember…?” reviewing “Beverly Hills Cop.” Then “Does it Have Legs?” took on “Beverly Hills Cop 2.” Now hear the conclusion – until there’s a BHC 4!

Check out other podcrawls with “Read it and Weep,” “The Flop House” and others.

“Theodore Rex” Extincts! (It stinks)

“Theodore Rex”  Extincts! (It stinks)

My big bro Mike Spiegelman insist we watch the biggest mistake in Whoopi Goldberg’s career and she named herself “Whoopi Goldberg.” “Theodore Rex” is  a kid’s film with bad dinosaur costumes and shoot outs.

Buy Mike’s joke book here. For 99 cents

It’s the future – and Whoopi is a cop with a dinosaur partner. What else do you need? Plot, jokes, production value? Naw.

From Wikipedia –

 

Though Whoopi Goldberg had made a verbal agreement to star in the film in October 1992 she attempted to back out. Abramson filed a $20 million lawsuit against Goldberg, which they settled very quickly. Goldberg agreed to star in the film for $7 million, ]$2 million more than the originally agreed-upon amount.

One of the attorneys on the case described this as being similar to the legal battle of Kim Basinger when she backed out of the film Boxing Helena.
