- Hilarious in Hindsight: In 1989, on The Arsenio Hall Show, Eddie Murphy said, "[Landis] has a better chance of working again with Vic Morrow than he does with me." Guess who directed this film?
- Padding: Axel saving a couple kids from a malfunctioning ride. The scene obviously only exists because this section was going too long without an action scene.
- Sequelitis: In large part thanks to the absences of Taggart, Bogomil and Friedman, as well as Axel seemingly dropping a good bit of his trademark snark.
- Special Effects Failure: When Axel runs over Taddeo (the henchman DeWald shoves out), Taddeo turns into the world's fakest-looking dummy.
