Bad Boys II

Corrected entry: The flag shown in Cuba is not the Cuban flag.


Correction: Not every flag is a national flag. Most countries will have dozens of flags in regular usage, representing regions, particular cities, organisations or even important individuals. As such, there is no reason to expect that any flag appearing on screen must be the national flag of the country the scene takes place in, particularly in a fleeting shot during an action sequence like this one.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Mike and Marcus are in the house being shot at, Marcus is in some sort of bathroom (there's a toilet there, anyway). He ducks behind the wall and the toilet, and the wall behind where his head was, around, and above, was covered completely in bullet holes. In the next shot, he sits back up again, and there are far fewer bullet holes in the wall.



Correction: Have a closer look. It is in the overhead shot, that the white wall way above the rectangular pink tiles is shot up, with multiple bullet holes. In the close-up shot of Marcus, we only see the pink tiled wall behind him, which has fewer bullet holes than the white wall that is higher up, over the pink tiles.

Corrected entry: During the chase scene, the first car to come off the trailer is a silver Pontiac Grand Prix, yet when they show the shot of the Haitian shooting the chain to release the car, it shows the rear end of a silver Buick.


Correction: The Grand Prix wasn't the first car to come off the truck. There were Buicks on the top rack that were falling off before the Grand Prix, some blue, some silver.

Corrected entry: When Martin Lawrence jumps from the balcony from the attic where he was planting bugs and into the grass, he bumps the camera, shaking the scene when he lands.


Aaron Lassman

Correction: Yes, and in the Hummer chase scene, mud flies up and covers the camera lens at one point. These aren't mistakes, they are left in the movie to make the viewer feel more like they are right in the action.

Corrected entry: After Syd smashes her way out of the pile-up and gets moving again there is about 20 seconds before the Haitians steal the semi but on the freeway they are right on her bumper. Fast semi.


Correction: The 4x4 was probably heavily damaged in the shootout/ramming, and therefore it's safe to assume it could not work to it's full potential. Also, take a look at the route to the motorway. The lorry is able to smash through the water barrels, where Syd decided not to. There also appears to be a lot of traffic, so Syd would have to slow down. Generally, people wouldn't move aside for a 4x4. If you have a loaded lorry with gunmen on it barrelling towards your rear at 80mph the sensible thing to do would be to move out of the way. Finally, most lorries nowadays are capable of reaching 100mph. I'd say the max speed of an undamaged GMC was around 120 (it may be lower), and so it doesn't provide that much of a difference between the top speeds.

Corrected entry: After Lowrey and Burnett scare Meghan's new boyfriend, Lowrey leans in to kiss Meghan on the cheek but he never touches here yet makes the "kiss" noise.

Correction: Which is the noise a person makes when they try to kiss someone and misses. Not a mistake, rather consistent with what really happens.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the bailed KKK member gets into the silver Cadillac trunk, his body lies with his head on the driver side and his feet are on passenger side and when Will Smith lets him out his body was lying in the opposite direction.

Correction: With all the high speed maneuvering and screeching around corners during the chase, it's not surprising he would be thrown around in the trunk. Besides, from the time the chase ended, to the time he started really kicking the trunk and making noise, sufficient time has elapsed for him to be moving from one side to the other, in an effort to try to find a way out of the trunk.

Corrected entry: In the scene when the Cuban house of Johnny Tapia gets attacked, two men would not be able to unload Mike and Marcus inside the coffin with their equipment without serious effort. Neither appears to break into a sweat.


Correction: They are big guys, but at the same time, you can see they are struggling with one of the coffins, in fact you can hear one of the guys say something like "ooof" when they get it on the trolley. Keep in miond, these guys are used to unloading coffins full of money and/or drugs, so a heavy casket would not be unusual to them.

Corrected entry: A few shots before the car pile up in the middle of the intersection, Mike and Marcus go on a chase to help Syd from the Haitians. You can see that there are no cars behind them, but when Syd crashes, about a dozen cars start crashing into the pile at high speeds. Where were the cars?


Correction: On the side streets, trying to cross the intersections when Syd and all run the lights.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, they are all riding in the H2 and Martin takes out his pistol and says he has one round left in the chamber. The pistol he pulls out is a Sig Sauer P226 with a chrome plated slide. He has carried it throughout the entire movie. Once they get to the minefield, he shoots Tapia. The only catch is that he shoots him with a Glock 17 with a chrome plated slide. He has not been seen with a Glock 17 for the entire movie. Only Will carries those (2 of them to be precise). At the end of the movie, Will has one of his Glocks while Gabrielle Union had the other (she threw her's onto a landmine). Where did Martin's come from?


Correction: Probably from the Cuban brother who got shot in the Hummer.

Corrected entry: When Syd is standing in front of the mirror, we see her slide the mic under her dress/cleavage, then in the next shot we see her slide it under again.

Correction: Yes, because a moment before she slides it under the 2nd time, we see it has popped up from under the seam.

Corrected entry: In the highway chase, a black car is seen to roll towards the camera. In the next shot, after the car 'hits' the camera, that car is now spinning, not rolling over.

Correction: It's not going to keep rolling indefinitely. There will come a point when an outside force acts on it, to change its' trajectory, and once it loses enough inertia, the rolling will turn into sliding/spinning.

Corrected entry: When Mike and Marcus are planning the siege on Tapia's Cuban Mansion in a police hangar, they get a phone call from Tito, who informs them that his men can get working on the tunnel right away. This must mean that they already have a safe house in mind. Then, why does Marcus question Tito about said safe house later on?

Correction: Marcus is asking about the why the safe house is located right across from Tapia's house, to which the reply is they would never think of looking for them there. Tito's brother did already have a safe house in mind, the one they had all along across the road.

Corrected entry: In the last scene, where Smith is yelling about not having enough bullets, he says he only has two bullets left yet in the entire scene, he never fired a shot from his Glock. So how does he only have two bullets left?

Correction: Maybe he miscounted, or estimated wrong, or did not have the Glock fully loaded.

Corrected entry: At one point during the Causeway chase scene, you can see a black pickup truck zoom by with a cage/roll-bar in the bed. This is the camera truck that was used to get the shots for most of this scene.

Correction: Yes, but evidently, there is no camera visible so technically, this cannot be counted as a mistake but simply as part of the storyline.

Corrected entry: After killing the Haitians in their house, Marcus and Mike proceed to the video store to look at the camera. Usually when the police kill people, there is some sort of investigation and the officers are placed on administrative leave. However Marcus and Mike and the rest of the team continue their case as if nothing ever happened. There is never even a mention of them killing the Haitians, and Captain Howard never questions how they came across the videotape.

Correction: Mike and Marcus don't really do much by the books, as we can see. Chances are, the Captain had no idea what they were doing anyway. They found the pink house from the guy who owned the head shop that they busted up, and all Captain Howard knew was that Mike had a "source". More than likely, the Captain wouldn't have even wanted to know.

Corrected entry: At Marcus' house, Mike looks inside the 1988 Palmetto High School Yearbook. Inside, Mike's full name is revealed as Michael Eugene Lowrey.



Correction: Mikes's full name is "revealed" for all to see, and is blatantly obvious to anyone who watched the movie, so it is not trivia.

Corrected entry: In the shanty town destruction scene in Cuba, a justification for plowing through the hoards of houses is that it is a cocaine producing neighbourhood. Cuba is not a cocaine producing country, as coca does not grow there.

Correction: True, but they could simply be processing cocaine being shipped in, or could be growing it inside the houses in controlled conditions.

Corrected entry: In the opening scene when Will takes a shot in slow motion, as you see the bullet in slo-motion you can see Martin Lawrence react to the bullet hitting his ass before the bullet even reaches him.


Correction: Either he was starting to react to the man with a shotgun, whom he was just seeing, and then his reaction switched to pain from the shock of the bullet. I've seen the movie numerous times and he seems to react just after the bullet hits him.

Corrected entry: When Mike and Marcus are following the drug runners, they call Johnny to tell them they are being followed. He says "you kill those black *******". How does he know who's following his men without being told?

Correction: Perhaps he didn't care if Carlos (Johnny's partner) said that they were being followed, Johnny commanded them to do one thing; to capture both Mike and Marcus, in which he did not think about anything else other than that.

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.


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.

In the final chase scene, the yellow Hummer starts out with an open sunroof. As it barrels through the shantytown, interior shots of the Hummer show it with a large overhead bank of storage compartments, while overhead shots show the sunroof. When the chase finally reaches Gitmo, the Hummer once again is shown with an open sunroof.



When Burnett and Lowrey are trying to take a car to chase the van, they end up taking the car driven by Dan Marino. The car before that, which is red and white, is stopped and the driver calls Burnett a freak. The driver is the director Michael Bay.
