An action film in the vein of Die Hard, the film stars Ken Wahl, fresh off the success of the TV series Wiseguy, as football hero Boomer Hayes, with Matt Frewer stepping up to the plate as his sidekick, Beverly Hills policeman Ed Kelvin. Despite Wahl's presence, and due to rather lackluster advertising, the film bombed at the box-office on its initial release, finding an audience through cable TV and its video release.
Our setting is the city of Beverly Hills, California: home of the filthy rich and famous. If you're the common man in this town, as are the Beverly Hills policemen, you're underpaid, overworked, and understandably fed up with it. One night, a truck carrying hazardous materials crashes, releasing a deadly chemical. The citizens of Beverly Hills are sent to quarantine in a hotel in Century City, while the police and the EPA agnets stay behind to keep an eye on the valuables and clean up the town.

Since they are so tiny, the trip is an epic adventure filled with a number of obstacles including "giant" insects and a runaway lawn mower.
