UNFINISHED BUSINESS: DEEP DIVE – THE GOLDEN CHILD (1986)

The chosen one of this week’s Unfinished Business TELEVISION DEEP DIVE is Eddie Murphy’s first attempt at a PG-13 fantasy adventure, THE GOLDEN CHILD. How did a serious detective story intended for Mel Gibson become a Beverly Hills Cop-like comedy vehicle for Eddie? Plus we share our first experiences with the movie, how it was supposed to launch an Indiana Jones-like franchise for Eddie, and who the other A-list filmmakers that Eddie sought for this misunderstood epic.
