Continuity mistake: In the beginning, as Nielsen plays his violin you can see a quiver on his back, the next scene it is gone.
Other mistake: Mr. Nielsen is hard of hearing and typically wears hearing aids during rehearsals, removing them for the actual takes. In the scene where he is eating spaghetti in the hotel room and watching the news on TV, he suddenly glances behind him at the initials written on the wall. When he turns his head, you can see the hearing aid in one ear; apparently he forgot to take it out before filming.
Continuity mistake: When Ryan jumps out of the back of the diaper truck, his face is completely normal. When he stands up, his face is blue and his cheeks have bulged out. (00:50:35)
Trivia: When Ryan (Leslie Nielsen) jumps away from the bus as it gets hit by a train, Ryan lands on a bicycle that doesn't have a seat. In the movie The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell Of Fear, Frank Drebin (also played by Leslie Nielsen) tells Hapsburg that the truth hurts, but not as much as jumping on a bicycle with no seat.
Trivia: When Ryan is in the hospital looking for the records room, two PA announcements are overheard. The first one is for Dr. Kimball. Dr. Kimball is a fictional character in the hit TV series The Fugitive who was charged with the murder of his wife and became a fugitive while trying to prove himself innocent. The second announcement is for Dr. Kevorkian to Mr. Simpson's room. In Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult, Nordberg, who was portrayed by O.J. Simpson, suggest that Leslie Nielsen be given Dr. Kevorkian's home phone number.
Judge: Ryan Harrison, a jury of your peers have found you guilty of murder. On August 12th at Stillwater Federal Prison you shall have your sentence carried out. You shall be executed buffet style: lethally injected, electrocuted, and placed before a firing squad. May God have mercy on your soul, you bastard you.
Ryan Harrison: These are on sale, right?
Roman: Sure, yeah. $32.50, okay? You betcha, sure.
Cass Lake: We're six floors up. No-one can see you.
Off-screen voice: Hey, Cass. Who's your new friend?
