Beverly Hills Cop II

Beverly Hills Cop II (1987)

13 corrected entries

Corrected entry: Axel introduces himself at the gun club as 'Richard James', which was the name of Eddie Murphy's musician friend who produced his 1986 album.

Correction: Incorrect. Eddie Murphy's 1985 album was produced by Aquil Fudge with the exception of the single "Party All The Time" which was produced by Rick James, not Richard James.

MasterOfAll

Corrected entry: In the meeting at the police station with among others Chief Lutz and the mayor you see part of technical equipment in the top left corner of the screen - several times."

Jacob La Cour

Correction: What you keep seeing at the top of the screen is not the filming crew's equipment, it's the bottom of the police monitors that hang directly over the conference table. When Rosewood shows Axel the shell casings (before Axel does his Johnny Wishbone thing), we can see those monitors over the conference table.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: In the jewelery store the front door is locked by the employee at gun point.When Karla leaves she simply pushes the door open and walks out.

Correction: Actually, after the chandelier falls, Karla fires her gun (we see and hear her do it) at the front door's lock, before pushing the door open and walking out.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: It doesn't make sense that Chief Lutz calls it 'The Alphabet Code' already after the first letter. It's all numbers. The only letter is A on the back - which stands for Adriano's. How would he know whether there would be a second letter with a B on?

Jacob La Cour

Correction: Lutz makes an assumption based on his years of experience in law enforcement. Based on the nature of the letter and the prominent "A" on the back he surmises that he is dealing with a serial criminal who is going to commit crimes based on the letters of the alphabet.

BocaDavie

Corrected entry: In the scene where Axel and Rosewood are in the cement truck, Axel asks "Well do the brakes work" and Rosewood replies, "I don't know, I haven't tried them yet", but previously when Taggart is chasing the cement truck on foot you can see the brake lights.

Correction: Rosewood is making a sarcastic joke, as he is driving fast and wildly.

Soylent Purple

Corrected entry: After Bogomil gets shot while helping Karla, he falls to the side of his car in the street. Then when we see Karla and the men in the Camaro speed off, Bogomil is lying face down in the parkway getting soaked by the running sprinklers.

Correction: As he gets shot you see him land on his car's trunk and roll to his left, heading for the ground face first. This fits in perfectly with him ending up on the grass, face down.

Corrected entry: When Axel & Rosewood are at the federal bank and the armoured car is racing towards them, Axel sends Rosewood to get "some wheels". It seems to take Rosewood only several seconds to run all the way up the street, jack/hot-wire the truck and pick Axel up.

Correction: When Axel and Rosewood are seen running past the truck, the drum is turning indicating that the truck is running with the keys already in it. Also, the truck is parked only a few hundred feet from the city deposit gate.

Corrected entry: The sky in almost every scene, in both Detroit and Beverly Hills, is some funky shade of ORANGE.

Correction: How is this a mistake? It was probably done on purpose by the filmmakers.

Corrected entry: Brigitte shoots up the chandelier during the final moments of the first robbery, yet as it drops into the showcase and Brigitte stalks out of the shop you can still hear her gun being fired.

Correction: I watched it closely and she's firing separate shots at the door.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Axel is making a call to Jeffrey, Jeffrey tells him that it is 1 a.m. and later when the cops are identifying fingerprints at the police station, Taggart tells them that it is 11 p.m. and the club they want to go to is closed at that time. It is still the same day, impossible.

Correction: Jeffrey is in Detroit and Axel is in Los Angeles, The time difference makes this possible.

Vernon Gilmore

Corrected entry: When Axel Foley is chasing the armoured truck that has all the money from the race track in it, the police light on the car falls off, but then in the next shot it is on again.

Correction: When I watched this film, the 'police light falling off' happened twice on two different occasions. However, both of these were at junctions, and what seemed to be a police light falling off was actually a reflection of the red light from the traffic lights.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Axel, Taggart and Rosewood are leaving the club, 385 North, it's dark outside, yet you can see the driver in the car with sunglasses on. And even when the shoot out begins, you can see the driver wearing sunglasses, even though you can plainly see it's dark outside.

Correction: I do not see what is wrong with this. The man is a thug and most professional thugs/criminals wear sunglasses so passers-by have a more difficult time recognizing them.

Corrected entry: Axel is speaking to Paul Rieser's character on the phone in Det. Rosewood's home and Rieser says it's 1 AM, but later that night at the police station Det. Taggart says it's almost 11 PM when Axel wants to go to the gun range.

Correction: I am not sure what the mistake is specifically. Axel's partner in Detroit says it is 1 am, which means it is 10 pm in LA when Axel calls. There is only approximately an hour between making the call and deciding to go to the gun club. I do not see anything wrong with this.

Mistakes

In the scene where they are chasing the armored car in the cement truck the chutes on the truck keep going from being down to folded up. This happens several times in the scene.

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.
