Another 48 Hours
I watched this follow up to the first movie (48 Hours) a few weeks ago and found myself really enjoying this movie more than I did back in the day. While it isn’t as good as the first movie, this one has some charm and violence that you don’t see in these PG-13 movies today.
Plus, there are some memorable lines. My favorites are these:
Other things worth noting in the film
~Bernie Casey looks totally different in this movie. He’s the one that punches through the window telling Eddie must keep his word.
~Kevin Tighe (John Locke’s dad) plays the asshole IAD officer. This guy is good at playing assholes and crooks. Just don’t lock him in a room with Sawyer.
~Look for a very young Tisha Campbell (Damn Gina) in the later haft of the movie. BTW, she looks great again. She’s lost all the weight.
~Page Leong is the girl who gets topless in this movie, sort of like when Denise Crosby got topless in the first movie. You have to wonder if she puts that in her Bio, “Played topless hooker in Another 48 hrs.”
~Eddie Murphy is a little overweight in this movie, something he admits to now. He wasn’t happy about it either. Look at his suit, it’s a little too small for him in the neckline.
~What exactly kind of club was Eddie and Nick Nolte in? There were rednecks mixed with white guys in yuppie suits mixed with strange girls with big hair.
~I thought it was neat that they brought back Brion James from the first movie, where he played a small part in the first movie, and made him out to be the main villain. They could have easily brought in a new character and made him out to be the bad guy.
~Great scene with the prison bus being attacked.
Eddie taking care of business in that strange cowboy/yuppie bar:
The Evil bike gang shot a female officer, (who is very butch, and didn’t know she was a she until she spoke)
