LatinoReview has gotten a look at Michael Brandt and Derek Haas‘ screenplay for Brett Ratner‘s “Beverly Hills Cop 2009“. Yes, even the title has a Ratner-level of annoyance. So what’s it about?
Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) is killed from a fall out of the 20th story of the Los Angeles Police Headquarters, but Axel (Eddie Murphy) refuses to believe it was a suicide. He is teamed up with a fat rookie cop with low self-esteem named Goodwin to solve the “murder”. And when he’s not on the case, Axel is trying to hook Goodwin up with a lady cop in the facial recognition department whom he has a crush on, and teach him the ropes. And the whole thing degenerates into a “pretty standard police corruption story”. How bad does this sound already? Well here are the top four reasons (quoted directly from Latino Review) on why this will probably suck:
- “A lot of the shit in the middle is way boring.”
- “Axel Foley has no funny lines”
- “It’s like Brandt and Haas saw the first BHC and just didn’t have the energy to write anything that matched up to it.”
- “It’s almost like the writers took an Arnold Schwarzenneger script they had lying around and changed the details to make it a Beverly Hills Cop movie. There’s no fun in it.”
