* CastTheExpert: The actor playing Foley's chief was a real-life Detroit city homicide detective.



* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: By the time Eddie Murphy was attached to the project, the script had been shopped around considerably and rewritten several times. Many of the funniest scenes just resulted from Eddie and the other actors improvising in place of the scripted lines.

-->'''Axel:''' Tell me something. Answer a question for me. How can a black man, dressed like me, just march into the bonded area and start poking around without anybody asking me ANY QUESTIONS WHATSOEVER?\\
'''Security Manager:''' [stammers] Uh... I... don't know.\\
'''Axel:''' Thank you, that's the answer I was looking for. [snatches their badges] [[BavarianFireDrill Why don't you just hand me your ID's? Someone's going to lose their job over this.]]

** Possibly justified in Zack's case, as the pump-action of his shotgun is quite loud, making a good indicator for Foley to start running. On the other hand, Maitland ''does'' manage to get a hit on Foley, forcing him to switch the hand holding the gun.

** After the banana-in-the-tail-pipe incident, Axel drags Taggart and Rosewood to a strip club when he knows both officers are on-duty. They happen to foil a robbery while they're there (Axel does a good chunk of the work), and all three are dragged back to the station to explain to Bogomil why they were there. Axel tries to cover for them by claiming that they simply followed him to the strip club and apprehended the would-be robbers on their own and calls them "super-cops" but [[HonorBeforeReason Taggart denies this and ends up telling the truth instead]]. Axel Lampshades this by stating that his "super-cop story" was actually working before they "fucked it up", earning a BlinkAndYoullMissIt smile from Bogomil.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Maitland's goons apparently trained on how to shoot up statuary rather than people; despite rocking out at full-auto with their Uzis, they can't hit ''anything''.

Somewhat justified in that [[MoreDakka machine guns]] are very hard to aim; less defensible is Maitland and Zack missing Axel when they have him dead in their sights.
