Lethal Weapon 2

Other mistake: When the car blasts out the container, the pallets which the money was on, don't come out with the money.

Bungleboy

Other mistake: When Riggs kills the guy who murdered his wife by dropping that cargo crate on him it's obvious the crate has no bottom and it falls around him, not least because the body's height doesn't change as the crate falls, there's no sign of impact or crushing, he just stays perfectly upright as it hits the ground.

Suggested correction: This is simply not a mistake - we obviously know that the filmmakers didn't really crush an actor, but there's no visible clue of the SFX "deception."

Other mistake: During the "high speed chase," Murtaugh stops the car so that Leo can retrieve Riggs' dropped gun from the side of the road. He picks it up and runs back to the car. Murtaugh says, "Give me that," and takes the gun from Leo. But, Murtaugh, being in the driver's seat, wouldn't be able to reach over the passenger seat and a foot or so outside of the car to grab the gun from Leo. It looks like someone in the passenger's seat just reached out and grabbed it.

Audio problem: In the scene where Leo explains how he launders the drug money and Roger says "You're a cheat", Leo says "Come on, everyone cheats a little, look at the pentagon." But when he says "look at the pentagon", it's dubbed in because the sound of his voice doesn't match his other dialogue, and if you read his lips it doesn't match either.

Arjen Rudd: Certain policemen in this city have become an intolerable nuisance. They are obviously onto us again. How do you propose to handle the situation?
Pieter Vorstedt: Warn them off. It's my experience that a scared cop is more useful than a dead one.
Arjen Rudd: A warning... Is that not a bit tame?
Pieter Vorstedt: Depends how you do it.

More trivia for Lethal Weapon 2

Question: I have heard a rumour that there is a deleted scene where Riggs kills the two guys who dropped him off the pier in a straight-jacket. Apparently it was too violent to keep in. If this is true then where could I see the deleted scene?

Answer: This scene is already in the movie (maybe only the Director's Cut). Riggs surfaces just off the pier, picks up a chain, strangles one man with it and breaks the other man's neck. The scene is cut considerably for play on television and in all versions of the movie in the UK prior to the 2010 UK blu-ray release (including the Directors Cut) - although some TV airings since 2000 have used the full uncut version.
