Have you ever noticed the television stations play old movies on the weekends?
One network seems to own the rights to Jaws and plays it over and over and over....
This weekend seems to be the Beverly Hills Cop series retrospective. Every time B turns on the tv there's the heh-heh-heh-heh of Eddie Murphy's character.
I don't remember these movies. The theme song and a couple of the characters, yes, but the movies, no.
And I frankly don't understand the pull. B has been perched on the sofa for most of the afternoon, exclaiming over the good parts and laughing. A lot.
While I ponder the ridiculousness of a Detroit cop going after bad guys in Beverly Hills (jurisdiction? Has no one heard of jurisdiction?) and wondering why all the really bad guys
have English accents.
So not like real life. And funnier than some of the hairstyles in the films.
Although not, by a long shot, more fun than the shoulder pads!
