Lethal Weapon 3

Other mistake: When Cole is looking at the LAPD records, Billy Phelps has a birth-date of 9/16/63 and is listed as 28 years old, meaning the current date is at least 9/16/91. However, the first record, Rick Sabman, has a birth-date of 9/1/60 and is only listed as 30 years old, when he should be 31.

Other mistake: in the scene where 'Sergeant' Jack Travis is asking to see billy Phelps, he is addressed as a Sergeant, later when Lorna is showing the CCTV footage from the interrogation room, she calls him Lieutenant Jack Travis. Is he a sergeant or a lieutenant? Furthermore, given he is a former police officer, he wouldn't be allowed near the station, let alone be allowed to interrogate a suspect in police custody.

Other mistake: At the construction site, when the car rolls in empty. Not only is the windshield suddenly tinted, the car is also riddled with about 100 bullet-holes when only 1 or 2 guys fired a few bursts.

Other mistake: The end credits mis-spell St. Petersburg as "St. Petersberg".

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the bad guys have taken the Captain hostage and are in the garage about to steal the guns, there's a closeup between the Captain & one of the bad guys talking. As the Captain turns, you can see an extra at the back wall dressed as a cop. He leans forward a little like he's supposed to jump in, then backs off. He's not there before or after that.

More trivia for Lethal Weapon 3

Question: Can anyone explain to me the phrase Rene Russo says to Mel Gibson 'Close is a lingerie shop without a window'. Gibson's character can't make sense of the phrase and neither can I.

Answer: So what does it mean? "Nothing, " says screenwriter Jeffrey Boam. "It's a complete non sequitur. The (original) line was something like 'Close doesn't count, ' or 'Close only counts with horseshoes.' Dick (director Richard Donner) is a fun-loving guy," says Boam, "and this thought just popped into his head. He said, 'Let's have her say something completely off the wall.'" Boam, who wasn't on the set at the time, quickly faxed Donner a dozen meaningless lines that began with the words, "Close is..." Then the whole cast and crew started coming up with them. But the one they used came from Russo herself. "This is like some line from a Beatles song," says Boam. "I guess people are trying to figure it out."
