Character mistake: In the final scene of the film where Axel is leaving, and Taggart says "See you around." when Axel turns around to start driving he says "Be cool Rein..." He accidentally uses the surname of the actor, Judge Reinhold, who plays Billy Rosewood. However he cleverly tries to cover it up by trailing off his sentence as he knows he has made the mistake. (01:34:15)
Continuity mistake: The guy in the armored car's passenger seat disappears and reappears during the chase.
Axel Foley: Well, sir, you have 25 unpaid parking tickets and it's your car, so we have to take you in.
Sidney Bernstein: Wait a second, I've got an idea. Is there something that I have, in this office, that I could hand to you and that would, make you...kinda forget that you're holding those, uh, little pink tickets there?
Axel: What are you trying to say, sir?
Sidney: Like, you'd be holding something in that hand, and this hand you'd forget about. This hand you'd be concentrating on. That hand you'd go, what, what did I have there? I don't even remember.
Axel: What, you mean, like, if I had um... $200 in this hand?
Sidney: Ouch! Let go of my arm. $200? Ouch! Please, I'm robbing you. That's what I'm doing. Here's one, here's two. They're real crisp.
Trivia: The cement truck that Billy drives has a sticker saying DS/JB Construction Company. DS and JB stand for the film's producers, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer.
