A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"The heat is definitely back on."


"A good-natured romp that makes gallant, sometimes hilariously misguided, efforts to fit an eighties aesthetic around contemporary California."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"The very definition of passable, comfort-viewing, nostalgia-tinged entertainment."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"The simple reminder of a situation, a character... from Beverly Hills Cop is supposed to leave us clapping our hands like seals."

Houston ChronicleHouston Chronicle

"The Detroit disrupter’s troublemaking shtick hasn’t changed 30 years on — and the material’s age is showing."
