Visible crew/equipment: During the jewelry store robbery, in the shot just before Karla announces, "1:45," one of the guys smashes the bat into a display case, and just as he walks away, behind him the reflection of one crew member is visible in the dark center of the mirror and another reflection of a second crew member, wearing blue, is visible at the mirror's edge. (00:01:45)
Continuity mistake: The guy in the armored car's passenger seat disappears and reappears during the chase.
Inspector Todd: Don't think, Axel! It makes my dick itch!
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.
