Beverly Hills Cop II

Continuity mistake: The plate on Karla Fry's Mercedes changes color and goes from 2DTA163 to 1PWJ391. The plate on the Camaro changes three times.

Continuity mistake: It is obvious that Carla shoots Cain in the head, but when Foley looks down at him, there is no bullet hole or blood on his head, but there is blood on his abdomen like he was shot there. (01:18:00 - 01:19:00)


Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart pull up beside the racetrack near the end of the film, you see the front and back doors on the passenger side opening, with Axel exiting the front, and Taggart exiting the back passenger side. Next shot, we see the car from the driver side with Rosewood exiting the front driver side, but now Taggart is exiting the back driver side. (01:23:50)


Continuity mistake: When they are in the police station using the co-ordinates that were locked in the drawer of Charles Cain's office it comes up with 9762 Gregory Way for the city deposit but when they are driving to the city deposit Sergeant Taggart radios in that they need help at 341 Gregory Way.

Continuity mistake: When Karla uses the stopwatch during the Adriano's heist, her left arm is raised as she shouts, "Now!" and puts the stopwatch in her pocket, but a few shots later her left arm is still raised holding the stopwatch and she puts it in her pocket again. A few shots later, yet again, she is holding that stopwatch raised in her left hand and she shouts, "Time!" (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to get to the Emperian Fields racetrack the red police beacon once again falls off of the car on a hard left turn. The next shot the beacon is back on top of the car. (01:20:10)


Continuity mistake: When Dent's crew are outside the race track in their limo, Dent is tapping a cigarette and holding something silver. In the next shot his hands are empty.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the police station with Lutz, the Mayor and others, the Mayor starts rolling down his sleeves as he prepares to put his jacket on and depart. But in the very next shot (only a second later based on continuous audio) his jacket is completely on as he is walking out. There was insufficient time for him to do this.

Continuity mistake: When Bogomil was running out at Dent's oil fields it was a dry and dusty day. He stopped and picked up some of the dirt - and it was very loose. But there is wet mud on his sneakers. Furthermore with the amount of mud left underneath he would have had to have gotten into a car immediately and driven home - not run - otherwise it would have fallen off. There is so much mud that he couldn't have walked many steps without it falling off.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Bogomil is talking to Axel on the phone, he's holding the newspaper clipping with his index and middle fingers extended. When the shot changes, his fingers are tucked behind his thumb.

Continuity mistake: When Chip is talking with Axel in the gun club he starts putting a cigar in his mouth. In the next immediate wider shot, he repeats the action.

Continuity mistake: The same exterior shot of the Beverly Hills Police Dept is shown three times, with the same people standing/walking around in front. The first is just before Bogomil opens the 'A' envelope. The second is just before Axel looks up the coordinates on the computer, and the third time is just before Bogomil announces his position as chief of police. (00:09:15 - 01:02:00)

Continuity mistake: When Axel notices the people working on the house, he's on a busy street with a lot of traffic (look behind him). When he turns the car around it's a smaller street without traffic.

More quotes from Beverly Hills Cop II

Trivia: In the scene where Foley first visits Rosewood's apartment, he at some point pauses and looks at a poster of Sylvester Stallone from the movie "Cobra" (1986). Stallone was originally supposed to star in Beverly Hills Cop (the first one) as Axel Foley (or his name was going to be Axel "The Cobra" Cobretti). The script was changed for Eddie Murphy, removing a large amount of the action sequences from the movie. Many of those sequences were later used in "Cobra." The shot of Foley looking at the poster is a reference to this fact.
