That first run...48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places...Eddie WAS that young, hip, street-wise dude.

Then never again...

When he came back for the sequels and Golden Child, he almost seemed to be doing an impression of his younger self.

Then after his long string of family movies, he tried to recapture that character in Tower Heist, and it was painful to watch. Actually, Charlie Murphy would have hit that role out of the park.
