Corrected entry: When Riggs is pinned beneath the concrete slab, Murtaugh staggers to his feet. His coat opens, revealing an automatic pistol in a holster. He was always known as a wheel gun guy, so why the automatic? And, if he had it, why didn't he use it to kill the guy in the white pajamas?

Correction: Remember that they had to find new guns because they ran out of ammo during the shootout. He just put away the one that still had ammo.

Corrected entry: When Riggs and Murtaugh are talking about how much ammo they have, Murtaugh says he has 6. He then shoots 2 and say he has 4 left. Next time Riggs asks Murtaugh says he has 2 left. When Butters is shot, Murtaugh fires 2. So he should have 0 shots left. However he still has one more, because he shoots Wah Sing Ku's brother. So where did the 7th bullet come from?

Correction: Although difficult to see, in some shots Murtaugh is seen using his Smith & Wesson 5906 in addition to his Model 19. In one shot he's seen holding one of the Triad's Makarov PM's which he must've picked up (most notably scene when Butters gets wounded), so that explains why he seems to fire more than six shots.

Corrected entry: Not really a mistake, but perhaps worth a look. In the previous three movies Mel Gibson's character wore his watch on his right hand. In this one he wears his watch on his left.

Correction: Like the submitter says, not a mistake at all.

Corrected entry: In Lethal Weapon 1, Riggs' wife's grave has a very small stone in the ground, but in this one when he leaves his ring, it is a much larger tombstone.

Correction: Gravestones can be upgraded. In the 11 years between the two films, it's possible that Riggs decided to buy a bigger grave marker for his wife. (Particularly if he plans to be buried with her so that his name can be added later.).

Continuity mistake: During the car chase involving the car driven by the Chinese guy, Murtaugh, and the mobile home, the two cars slide against each other and the right wing mirror on Murtaugh's car is completely wrecked. Once the two cars are separated the wing mirror has miraculously repaired itself. The left wing mirror also does a disappearing / reappearing trick.

Lee Butters: You have the right to remain silent. So shut the fuck up. You have the right to an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney, we will provide you with the dumbest fucking lawyer on Earth. If you hire Johnny Cochrane, I'll kill you!

Question: Something I really don't understand about the ending. Riggs is looking over his former wife's grave when his beeper tells him that Lorna is expecting their baby. He races to the hospital and there she is about to give birth. So who drove Lorna to the hospital? Can't have been Riggs as he wouldn't have left at a time of need just to see his wife's grave. Doubtful that Lorna drove herself, and no relatives were there (as we see at the end). So what other explanation is there?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: She could have taken a taxi or an ambulance, or even driven herself. A neighbor or friend could have taken her who didn't stay after she was admitted. She might have already been at the hospital for any number of reasons - doctor's appointment, already admitted for bed rest prior to labor, etc. etc. etc.
