A freewheeling Detroit cop pursuing a murder investigation finds himself dealing with the very different culture of Beverly Hills.
The shooting script was literally pasted together from the many scripts written for the project over the years. When they were stuck, Eddie Murphy would improvise dialog or create a scene.
If something happens to her...
Victor Maitland: Hmmm...? I'm all ears.
Axel Foley: I'll kill you.
Victor Maitland: Really? That would be a neat trick.
When Axel is shot and falls on his shot arm in the kitchen, he immediately sits up resting on the wall. Doing so, as he gets up there is one spot of blood on the floor. In the next shot, there are 3 blood spots on the floor.
Scott Murphy's character of Det. Owensby is misspelled as Det. Owenby in the credits.
