FATAL BEAUTY (1987)
IMDB rating - 4.7
"An earthquake is about to hit L.A. It's called Detective Rita Rizoli."
Fatal Beauty stars Whoopi Goldberg as a tough narcotics cop who goes undercover in a multitude of different disguises. The movie has a very Beverly Hills Cop feel about it, but I've always thought it stood out (along with Jumpin' Jack Flash) among Whoopi's 80's comedies. FB also stars Sam Elliott and Ruben Blades, with bit parts by James LeGros, Neill Barry, and Mark Pellegrino (aka Jacob from Lost).
Here's a cheesy, but memorable scene from the flick:
