Beverly Hills Cop

Back in time for ultimate summer

I grew up in Durban on the east coast of South Africa. Summer for us was in December and January, but it was met with no less enthusiasm than in the northern hemisphere. I really did have a special group of songs that I would play for summer.

Murphy's law of laughs

IF Beverly Hills Cop (Pearl 9.30pm) serves only one purpose - to allow Eddie Murphy the opportunity to work a dozen or so variations on his familiar and oddly enduring routine - it serves it well. It could have been worse, particularly if you think that the role was originally tailored for Sylvester Stallone.

THE espionage thriller Undeclared War (World, 9.40pm) was directed by Hong Kong's Ringo Lam and stars two of the territory's personalities in the shape of Danny Lee and Rosamund Kwan. But it is really an international affair.

Pick of the TV Flicks

THERE are times when I wonder whether some of our TV programmers really know what television is all about.

OKAY, okay, I admit the Pick Of The TV Flicks is something of a misnomer, because if truth be told I can only really admit to liking two of the TV movies on show this week.
