48 Hrs. (1982)

In his big screen debut, Murphy plays a convict who is teamed up with a cop (Nick Nolte) in order to track down a cop killer within — you guessed it — forty-eight hours. The film was a massive hit, earning Murphy a Golden Globe nomination and spawning the genre of "buddy cop" movies.
