Deliberate mistake: When Ed's looking at the drawings done by the sketch artist near the start, he's flipping over a book of them. Trouble is that they all end up facing the camera, meaning that Ed must have been looking at the blank side - we see the blank pages briefly as he flips them. (00:14:30)Jon Sandys
Commissioner Brumford: [On phone.] Hello? He did what? How many animals escaped? Oh, my god.
Frank: Hello, Commissioner. You're looking lovely this evening.

Frank: Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?
Trivia: A few of the jokes featured in the movie (the scene when Frank, after falling through Habsburg's warehouse roof, first looks messy and, after smoothing his hair, is totally clean again; or the roof-top shootery with a goon less than two yards away, and always missing) were featured in the Naked Gun's prequel series, Police Squad. Frank's habit of treating every piece of cloth thrown into his face like a monster clinging on likewise originates from that series.
