"48 Hours" Movie Trailer

Movie Summary

Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte make one of the most unusual and entertaining teams ever in Walter Hill’s
roller-coaster thriller, "48 Hrs."

Nolte is a rough-edged cop after two vicious cop-killers.  He can’t do it without the help of smooth and dapper Eddie Murphy, who is serving time for a half-million dollar robbery.  This unlikely partnership trades laughs as often as punches as both pursue their separate goals:  Nolte wants the villains; Murphy wants his money and some much-needed female companionship. 

Watch for Eddie Murphy’s hilarious scene in a redneck country-western bar – you’ll want to see it again and again.
