Bad Boys II

Corrected entry: After the chase scene with the morgue van the female forensics tech is explaining that the bodies are cut open, the organs taken out, and sewed up again. The body she is kneeling over is still sewed up. How could she possibly know the organs are missing without an open examination of the bodies or an x-ray?


Correction: The stitching pattern, and the fact that the body fell out of a morgue's van, tells her that the body's been embalmed.

Corrected entry: The mines shown outside the US base in Cuba towards the end of the film were actually banned by the Geneva Convention so its highly unlikely that the US would consider using them.

Correction: Given the other breaches of the Geneva Convention by the US with regard to detentions at Guantanamo bay, the use of these mines cannot be assumed to be a movie mistake.


Corrected entry: When Will is in the Haitian hideaway he reloads his pistol and recocks the weapon. If he had just fired off a round, finishing the previous magazine requiring a change, the top of the pistol would be back because no round would have been available to slide it forward. If Will had done it correctly, he would only have needed to release the catch holding it and it would have taken a round into the breach for him. By cocking it he could have lost a valuable round.

Correction: A few minutes earlier, he dropped both magazines in slow motion but his slides weren't locked back, hence he wasn't actually out of ammo. In a tactical situation, if you are almost out of bullets, it is better to reload a fresh magazine and lose a round or two than be caught with a near-empty gun.

Corrected entry: A Suburban is often mentioned in the movie, but it is actually a GMC Yukon (Suburban is the same car, but from Chevrolet) - You can see it in some shots as it's entering the garage and in the chase

Correction: It is not uncommon for people to confuse these 2 trucks. Since everyone knew what vehicle they were talking about, the point was achieved. It's not like they said Hummer H2 instead of Yukon.

Corrected entry: The machine guns that Mike Lowry keeps in his Ferrari are law enforcement issue H&K UMP 45's. After he gets out of the car and is shooting at Haitians from behind the white electrical box, he's holding onto the mag while he's shooting. His bullet stream would have been abruptly stopped as H&K's are notorious for jamming when held by the magazine.

Correction: Although the H&K UMP 45's are infamous for jamming if you hold the magazine, its only if you are using an open-sided magazine. These are the type that have a slit down the side so you are able to check your reamining ammo. In the film, Will Smith has closed magazines and so this would not be a problem.

Corrected entry: Why isn't there blood on the bag of drugs? It was inside a dead guy.

Correction: The blood and guts had already been drained and removed from the body by the time the drugs had been inserted.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: After the shoot out in the Haitians' pink house, Martin Lawrence is yelling at Will Smith about how, "dead suspects" don't talk. He asks the guy slumped down over the toilet, yet earlier on it is clearly Martin Lawrence himself who kills the guy, so, he is having a go at Will Smith for nothing.

Correction: Martin Lawrence would have had no way of knowing who shot the guy who is currently slumped over the toilet, because he was hiding and just shooting blindly. He couldn't have possibly known who shot that man.

Corrected entry: After Will Smith has thrown the van driver onto the train tracks, you notice that there is glass on his shirt from where they broke through the window. In the next shot, it's gone.

Correction: Well the train WAS travelling at quite a rate of speed. Glass isn't very heavy.

Corrected entry: When the rats are found in the house, the Hispanic drug leader exclaims "F**king ratones.", or a similar expletive. The animals are rats, but "ratones" is the Spanish word for mice. The proper word would be "ratas".

Correction: Believe me, ratones is used for both rats and mice. I know this because I used to live in Mexico, and Spanish is my first language.

Corrected entry: When Marcus and Mike are getting in trouble from Captain Howard he circles TNT unit and puts a line through tactical; in the next scene the line is under the word tactical. (00:40:10)

AzN InVasian

Correction: He doesn't line through tactical he underlines it, and actually lines through the word narcotics.


Corrected entry: The movie starts with the scene in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), where a containership is loaded with Extacy. A guy is calling from a phonebooth and says "everything is under control". The language he is speaking, does not exist, it sounds like German, but it is definitely not Dutch.

Correction: I am German and so I know that that what he talks is German for "Everything is under control" -> "Alles unter Kontrolle" with a Dutch accent, so it's definitely a language which exists.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the car chase on the bridge you can see a helicopter right through the window of the Ferrari. It must be a crew helicopter since there is no helicopter in the story at that time.

Correction: The helicopter has to be a part of the story because we can see the aerial footage of what happens on the bridge when they are in the captain's office.

Corrected entry: In the final chase scene just before they reach the US base, Mike asks if anyone has any more bullets. Marcus and Syd are all out, and their Cuban accomplice says he has one "in my hip". But when they arrive at the base and get out of the Hummer, Marcus shoots Tapia in the head.

Correction: When asked if he has any more bullets Marcus actually replies "Two, one in the chamber." He uses that one to shoot Tapia.

Nick N.

Corrected entry: When Mike and Marcus are in the pink house, Marcus jumps behind the toilet. After one magazine is empty he puts in another one and starts firing without pulling back the top of the gun, which is necessary to get a bullet into the barrel.

Correction: When the gun runs out of ammo, the top of the gun stays back. When Martin puts the new magazine in, he's just gotta press the button which moves the top of the gun back. He can do this with the same hand he uses to fire the gun, which is why we don't see it.

Corrected entry: In the chase scene where the dead bodies are falling off the truck, the head snaps off one of the dummies being used for the dead bodies as it hits the road.

Correction: That is meant to happen. The captain mentions something about the corpse's head coming off later in the film.

Corrected entry: In the scene when they assault the mansion and send in the RC car, they place it under the car that's entering the driveway. When the car is shown from the back entering the driveway the RC is not under the car.

Correction: When the shot from behind is shown you can see the RC, it's just behind the front right-hand side wheel of the truck going up the driveway.

Corrected entry: When Johnny Tapia shoots the guy in the head (the one that was taking care of the rats) there is another guy behind him who gets blood all over him; looking at the guy who got shot, the bullet seems to go through his head, yet the guy standing behind him doesn't get hit by the bullet.

AzN InVasian

Correction: The guy who gets splashed by the blood was standing more on the right side in the back of the guy who gets shot.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, there is a boat with drugs on it that has left Amsterdam; yet the writing on the bottom of the screen tells the audience that the boat is in the Gulf of Mexico. However, if the boat was leaving Amsterdam and going to Miami, why was it in the Gulf of Mexico? Shouldn't it have been in the Atlantic Ocean?

AzN InVasian

Correction: The boat should be in the Gulf of Mexico. The boat doesn't land in Miami, it lands in the Everglades which is in western Florida. To get to the Everglades, the boat would have to go around the Keys and into the Gulf which would put them into the western Everglades.

Corrected entry: When Will Smith is at Martin Lawrence's house for the BBQ, Lawrence is wearing a Miami Heat Jersey with the name "Moring" on the back. They leave the house to check some stuff out and then Lawrence has on an Atlanta Falcons jersey with the name "Vick" on the back. Same colours different names.

William Palmeri

Correction: "Mourning" is actually spelled correctly on the jersey. Also, before Will Smith gets the call on his phone, Martin Lawrence is washed into the bay by the water from his collapsed swimming pool. It should be safe to assume that, before they left, he changed into dry clothes. That would explain the different jerseys.

Corrected entry: In the morgue scene where Will Smith and Martin are checking out the "fat does" for evidence, Will asks Martin to check a coffin for clues. As Martin looks through the coffin there is a shot of money that he finds inside the casket. If you look closely at this shot, the top bill in the bundle of hundreds reads "to be used for motion pictures only."

Correction: May have been fixed in the DVD - I couldn't see anything untoward.
