Lethal Weapon 3 ★★½ 1992 (R)

Murtaugh and Riggs return for more action in another slambang adventure. Murtaugh hopes his last week before retirement will be a peaceful one, but partner Riggs isn't about to let him go quietly. Not many changes from the successful formula with bickering buddies, lots of adventure, exploding buildings, a little comic relief from Pesci, and the addition of Russo as an Internal Affairs cop who proves to be more than a match for Riggs. 118m/C VHS, DVD .
