Lethal Weapon 3

Continuity mistake: In the hockey game, the teams playing are the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. You can notice the real logos when the camera is away from the action. When it gets closer, though (probably because of copyrights), the maple leaf is turned into a spades (from cards) with only "Toronto" written and the Kings' word and crown in the logo become just an "LA" with a slightly different shape.

Continuity mistake: When the suspect is shot in the interrogation room, we can clearly see blood on the wall behind him. But when Riggs walks in and sees him, there's no blood visible.

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.

Trivia: The building that explodes in the beginning of the film (due to Mel Gibson messing with the bomb) was the old city hall in downtown Orlando, Florida, where the scene was shot. In reality, only half the building collapsed from the explosion.

Trivia: After the building collapses in the beginning, the bomb-squad guy who claps (making fun of Riggs's and Murtaugh's goof up) is in real life Bill Frederick, the mayor of Orlando at the time the scene was filmed.

Trivia: When Delores calls herself the "Road Warrior", it's a fairly naked reference to Mel's prior role in the three Mad Max films. (00:11:15)

More quotes from 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.

Chosen 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."
