Not the original "White/Black Buddy Cop" film, but probably the one that everything since then has modeled itself after. This is the clear inspiration for Rush Hour (1998). Eddie Murphy steals every scene that he's in, this is clearly his film where he made the leap from really good stand-up comedian/SNL actor, to "Movie Star." I rate this film as 2.5 stars because it's not that great of a film, but I also say, if you're a fan of any "buddy cop movie" since 1982, then you have to see this.

I am a big fan of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, so I was expecting a lot when I heard of this movie. This is far different from what I was expecting. Murphy is a little more dialed back in this movie than he is in the Beverly Hills Cop series. Nick Nolte is the main star of the flick and is okay. I did like this movie and the villain was done very well, to keep the movie going. I wish they had a better soundtrack t go with this. I love a good 80's music movie. Little re-watchability, but it is worth the watch for buddy-cop movie fans.

A great buddy action comedy. Eddie Murphy is really at his best in this kind of movie. The movie is very 80s but still very fun to watch.

For the 80s, this was a funny action flick. Keeping in mind the era, it still delivers some good laughs. True, the action is a little lame. Nolte and Murphy are worth seeing.

Eddie Murphy's first film

Before Eddie Murphy's career took a nose dive in the late 80's and he decided to clean up his image in the early 90's he put together a number of cop films. 48 Hours was probably the first "buddy cop film" that can be attributed to inspiring a genre with more cliche's than you can count.
"48 Hrs" lays down the template for those to follow thusly: Nick Nolte plays a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, heavy swearing cop who's as popular with his superiors as he is with those he busts. After seeing two cops gunned down, he is forced to spring wise-cracking petty criminal Eddie Murphy from jail in order to catch the punk. Problem is, he has only forty-eight hours in which to crack the case before Murphy must go back inside.
Over all it was a pretty entertaining movie, it was also Eddie Murphys ...
