What are you gonna do to him?
Victor Maitland: I think you should be more worried about what we're going to do with you.
Axel Foley: Yeah, Jenny, don't worry about me. We got cocaine and coffee here. We're gonna get wired and have a big party.
In the movie poster, Axel leans on the Mercedes while holding a 1911-style .45-cal. automatic. However, he uses a Browning 9mm throughout the film.
Scott Murphy's character of Det. Owensby is misspelled as Det. Owenby in the credits.
