Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

Playing a street smart Detroit cop who comes to Beverly Hills to solve a murder (a role originally intended for Sylvester Stallone), this is Murphy's first full-fledged starring vehicle. It became one of the highest-grossing R-rated comedies of all time, securing his place on the A-list.
