Constructed purely to allow Murphy full rein, the movie leads with its strongest card: Murphy as a cop, black, dirty, fast, on a case of stolen Marlboros in Detroit. When he begins unofficially to investigate the death of a friend, the trail leads him to Beverly Hills. The only black comic who doesn't make white audiences feel guilty expertly steps into the gaping holes left specifically for him in the film, but the connecting stuff is just bagatelle. CPea.
