The license plate on the front of Bogomil's car is 2CTE919. When he pulls over to help Karla the license plate on the front of his car has changed to 2CTE673. (00:13:20)

Continuity mistake: When Axel breaks into the Shooting Club he places a piece of gum on the door. He squeezes it flat with his finger. But in the next clips, the piece of gum is not flat - and its position has changed.

Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood takes a hard left turn. During this turn we can see that Axel is in the passenger seat and Taggart is in the back seat. The next shot Taggart is in the front seat on the police radio and Axel is in the back seat. This clip was taken from later in the movie when the guys are racing to the Emperian Fields race track and Axel is in the front seat with Taggart in the back seat. (01:03:20)

Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood and Taggart fight over whether the light is green or red. Rosewood drives through it and hits another car. The red police beacon falls off the roof and onto the hood. As the car spins the beacon is gone. In the next shot we can see the beacon back on top of the car above Taggart's head. (01:04:35)

Continuity mistake: The speed with which the cement truck's mixing barrel turns changes significantly between clips of the car chase - and in some clips it doesn't turn at all.

Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood runs over several parking meters on the sidewalk which heavily damages the front end of the car. However, later when Taggart catches up to Axel and Rosewood outside the Playboy Mansion, he's driving the exact same car, complete with the police light, but the front end isn't damaged at all.

Continuity mistake: The construction worker Axel talks to at the beginning yanks off his hat (when he says "Son of a..."), but it jumps back to his head after the angle changes.

Continuity mistake: When Chief Lutz is going through the case in the meeting with the mayor he says "There is no B and D." But there was a B - when Bogomil got shot. Didn't they find that letter?

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Axel's knife breaks in the drawer in the Shooting Club, you can see that there is about 2 inches left of the blade. But when he holds up the knife there is only about 1 inch. Clearly not the same knife.

Continuity mistake: When Axel is hunted in the garage by the black car backing up, you see the hole in it's back window. One shot later the hole is more than twice the size.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: After Axel shoots the screens in the gun club they show a shot of Karla and Russ talking about the shell casing. You can see the screens between and around them. There are no holes. Axel is also playing with the artificial laser sighted gun just as he was in the previous shots before he shot holes in the screens. Axel and Karla are later shown at the shooting range and the screens are perfectly intact. (00:36:30)

Continuity mistake: The two $10 bills Axel gets from the gun club receptionist get very wrinkled when Axel squeezes them. But when he walks away, holding the bills up, they are totally straight.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bogomil stops to help Karla their cars are several meters apart. When Bogomil gets the first shot he rolls on the bonnet of Karla's car. He walks 1-1½ steps towards her. She pushes him back (i.e. towards her own car), but even so - he bumps into his own car. It was much further away and in a different direction.

Continuity mistake: At the oil fields warehouse Axel opens a crate of grenades on the back of the truck. The lid from the crate shifts slightly from when he opens it to when he reaches in and takes out some grenades. (01:28:05)

luchador

Continuity mistake: When Axel gets the bag of vitamins from Rosewood the bag is rolled/folded closed in one direction only. This is also seen after Axel wets his face with the water from the champagne bucket. After he wets his face he grips the back with the folded top of the back facing him. The next shot he is walking towards the receptionist with the bag facing her. The folded edge is now facing away from him. The single folded edge is best seen after he picks up the bag from the receptionist's desk. (00:31:30)

luchador

Continuity mistake: When Axel pulls into the warehouse to meet up with Vinnie he barely gets the Ferrari into the dock doorway and it is crooked when he parks it. After he gets out of the car the car is pulled in further into the doorway and parked straight. (01:14:35)

luchador

Continuity mistake: Following the final showdown, the bad guy is shot while trying to run Axel over. The car then crashes through a wall and a fence and plunges down a bank landing on its nose/bonnet. When it explodes, it is lying on its side.

Continuity mistake: When Axel arrives at the hospital he's wearing a gold, round, white faced watch, with a black band. When he's driving, and soon sees the house under construction, the black band on the watch is a type of weave design (note his hand on the steering wheel). When he talks to the foreman, the watch is all black and has a plain black band.

Continuity mistake: When Rosewood, Axel and Taggart are driving in the car, such as on the way to the City Deposit/Federal Reserve Bank and later on the way to Sidney Bernstein, the car's rearview mirror vanishes and reappears repeatedly. (01:03:10)

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.
