Beverly Hills Cop III

Deliberate mistake: Twice in this film Axel is shot at by multiple gunmen using automatic weapons at close range - and they all miss. In the Earthquake theme ride the bullets ricochet of the rails at Axel's feet. Why are they all aiming low? Why don't they raise their aim? In the park outside he hides behind a perfectly ordinary park bench and the bullets hit the wooden slats. Not one goes through the open spaces between them? I know bad guys can't shoot straight in the movies, but this is ridiculous ...

Continuity mistake: Just before Axel uncovers the printing press, the woman puts the map in the oky dokey suit, not his shirt. When he gets out of the suit, he does not pick up the map piece. In the vent he pulls the map out of his pocket, but how did the map piece get from the elephant suit to his pocket without him picking the piece up?

Plot hole: Uncle Dave, the elderly owner of Wonder World, takes a bullet to the torso, yet he is able to stand at a podium to introduce the new character, while all three of the erstwhile heroes, who received arm wounds, are in wheelchairs.

Serge: Now, one thing's very important. At the survival boutiqua, I feel that it's my personality, that's it's my philosophy that everything must conform to the three P's, OK? Which is, protection. Prestige. And pretty. I mean, why should you look ugly if you're just trying to survive?

Chosen answer: Both men chose not to participate in this movie after reading the script but have not stated publicly what the specific issue was. Anyone who saw the movie can probably venture a guess!

Question: What led Axel Foley to know that agent Fulbright was in on the scheme? He didn't seem to show any suspicion earlier. Was it just because Fulbright was at the park at the end? The way Foley talked made it seem like he figured it out before know Fulbright was there.

Answer: Axel was suspicious of Fulbright of knowing everything that was going on in Wonderland but did nothing. He said, they were investigating but Axel was the only one making any progress. Plus, to get the materials needed to make counterfeit bills they were using authentic paper and ink, something only a Treasury Agent would have access to.
