Rating: 2.5/5

Elizabeth pays for her ticket and says she’s going to get some popcorn. Her sister, Moana tells her don’t bother. Behind her, her brothers quote Beverly Hills Cop lines from the first movie. Kathy tells for them to hurry. The seats are going to fill up.

They could hardly agree on what movie to watch. However, they were in agreement for Beverly Hills Cop II. Their brothers had played it so often at home, Elizabeth and her sisters started to watch it. They started own their games and shouted back responses to the their favorite quotes. They ended up wearing out the VHS tape.

They find seats in the center of the theater. Moana opens her purse and hands Elizabeth some candy. Moana tells her to pass some down to their brothers. Elizabeth bites into her candy and watches the trailers. Kathy unwraps her candy bar and says she’s hope it’s as good as the first one. Elizabeth says the reviews have been positive. Moana puts her fingers to her lips and tells them to “shush” as the opening credits roll.
