Other mistake: When Bogomil gets shot two bullets are fired, one by the drive-by shooter and one by Karla, yet there are three distinct bullet holes and a forth large hole in the rear windshield of Bogomil's car. Two holes are completely unaccounted for. (None of the windshield holes are tree reflections.)

Continuity mistake: Hugh Heffner disappears. In one clip he is right next to Axel. Three to four seconds later he is nowhere to be seen, even though the camera pans around, and the spot is quite crowded.

Factual error: Ronnie Cox is shot in the heart at point blank range by Brigitte Neilsen, and it looks to me like she's using a large caliber handgun. Keeping track of the action of the film tells us that Cox is sitting up in bed chatting to his friends just three days later. What nonsense. Even if he did survive (unlikely) he'd still be in Post-Op Intensive Care at that stage. He wouldn't be conscious, let alone allowed visitors.

Continuity mistake: Bogomil is standing and looking down into the engine of Karla's car when the assassin drives up. However when the shot is fired, Bogomil rolls on the bonnet of the car. When was the bonnet closed?

Continuity mistake: After being put on leave, Bogomil leaves the office and is driving towards the camera. His car is being followed, then passed by, the Mercedes Benz driven by Karla Fry. 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.

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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, the trio arrive at the oil fields, crouch behind the rear of a car and Axel picks up some red dirt, explaining that it's the same as what was on Bogomil's shoes, and the horse. It is obvious that the crew just spread a small area of red dirt around for the shot. The majority of the area is regular brown dirt.

Continuity mistake: As Axel is driving down the street right before he cons the builders out of the house, you can see in the background a lot of cars as it is a busy street. Axel then makes a U-turn in the middle of the street without getting hit, and no other car is ever seen on this road.

Continuity mistake: When Taggart is shouting at Axel in the pool he has his glasses on. In the next shot of him slipping into the pool, his glasses are gone. Also his cigar was in his hand in the scene before he slipped. Once he slips the cigar is in his mouth.

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.

Factual error: While Karla is shooting in the gun club she is using a revolver. Bullet shell casing are flying out from her gun and dropping to the ground. Revolvers do not eject the shell casings while firing.

Continuity mistake: As Sidney Bernstein pulls two $100 bills from his wallet and hands them to Axel he says, "Here's one, here's two. They're real crisp," so then Axel holds the two bills in his right hand and the papers in his left hand. However, in the next shot facing Axel, there are now at least four bills in Axel's right hand.

Revealing mistake: After Axel gets off the phone with Jan, when the trio are driving to the racetrack, in one shot Axel has his arm out the passenger side window as he's holding the red police beacon on the car's roof. Note the stunt double's gold watch instead of Axel's black watch.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Axel arrives at the hospital he is wearing his watch on his right wrist, but when he walks into Bogomil's room to say hi to Jan the watch is on his left wrist. The same thing happens when Axel drives past the house with renovations, his watch is on his right wrist, but when he pulls into the driveway the watch is on his left wrist. Interestingly, none of these shots are flipped.

Continuity mistake: When Axel breaks open the drawer at the B.H. Shooting Club, he finds the notepad with the coordinates. When the pad is in the drawer there are five full lines of writing with a sixth short line below it, but when Axel takes the pad out of the drawer there are only four full lines of text with two more short lines below.

Factual error: When breaking in at the gun club, Axel squeezes the gum foil in the door crack, and fastens it with the gum. But the gum is on the outside of the door. When he opens the door, the foil would flip a bit back, so it would not connect the magnet on the back of the door - where there is no gum.

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.
