A huge pile of crap. Amazing that they went so wrong with this one. Landis has killed the franchise.

Bad writing. A lot of plot tangents, including a lot of theme park fluff that doesn’t need to be in there. From catching drug dealers to smugglers to saving kids from a broken theme park ride. We’re going the wrong way.

Bad comedy. Poor Eddie Murphy does his best but can’t save it. Fat people dancing? Eddie Murphy in an elephant costume? Really? The even ruined Serge.

A victim of the central casting epidemic of the 90’s. Everyone looks like a stock character. They did even worse for De Wald, who is a complete dweeb and definitely not villain material.

The horrible remixes of Faltermeyer’s legendary Axel F were the last straw.
