* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first movie, before the series embraced its comedic elements, is much darker, with moody sax music, and a bit of a FilmNoir vibe.

** After Murtaugh's daughter appears in a condom advertisement, Murtaugh bemoans how his police colleagues will be planting condoms wherever he goes. [[spoiler:That night Murtaugh and his family are attacked in their home and no-one is interested in playing jokes on him...until later on in the movie when Murtaugh shoos away some cops crowding around his desk only to find they've planted a 'rubber tree' there. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Even Murtaugh can't help breaking down in laughter.]]]]

-->'''Murtaugh:''' See how easy that was? Boom, still alive. Now we ''question'' him. You know why we question him? Because I got him in the leg. I didn't shoot him full of holes or try to jump off a building with him!
-->'''Riggs:''' Hey, that's no fair. The building guy lived.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: Murtaugh should never have been assigned to the Hunsaker case because the victim was the daughter of a war buddy of his, a conflict of interest (The whole scene where Hunsacker starts yelling "You owe me! I want you to kill them!" in front of several witnesses would cast a great deal of doubt on whether the shootings of the villains was genuinely necessary or simply engineered to look that way by a cop who felt morally obliged to kill them anyway).


Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: This movie is the one that insinuates that diplomatic immunity is a license to commit crimes with impunity. In reality, once the LAPD found out that the South African diplomats were running a drug ring, they could have just notified the State Department, who would have them deported. Since South Africa is a United States ally, it's probable they would then be extradited, or at least tried in their home country.
