About the Movie
Here they go again. Only faster. And tougher. Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy) and Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) return in the smash sequel that's "better than the first!" (Pat Collins, WWOR-TV). How much better? For starters, the mob puts a price on Reggie's head. The bus transporting him from the pen flips over about 17 times. His prized Porsche is blown into scrap metal. Creeps in a bar still haven't learned it's dumb to get Reggie mad. And the night is still young. Before these 48 hours are up, Reggie and Jack will turn San Francisco inside out to nail an elusive druglord. The boys are back in town . . . and the action's on the streets. Don't miss it!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Murphy has two comic moments, which aren't enough for a feature-length film. Among other things, he has developed some of the same maddening mannerisms that marked Frank Sinatra's performances in his Rat Pack movies.
Rotten: Walter Hill, who also directed the first film, surely recognizes the hollowness of what he's doing here. He also hasn't had a hit since "48 HRS.," which no doubt explains why he's once again tilling these charred fields.
Rotten: Hill and his stars are merely going through the motions, but the motions are immensely familiar.
Rotten: You know how sometimes, in a dream, you'll see these familiar scenes and faces floating in and out of focus, but you're not sure how they connect? Another 48 HRS is a movie that feels the same way.
Great movie, screw Roger Ebert!
This movie is funny, witty and action packed. The two leads are as loveable as ever, and though it will never be the classic that the original is, this is a very worthy and entertaining sequel.
I'd love to see the soundtrack on iTunes. There are songs that I just can't find anywhere else.
Another 48 hours seen over 48 times fantastic
Eddie Murphy is a comedic genius. Action packed from beginning to end. But, come on iTunes I don't want to rent it I want to buy it please!
