A private detective's protected female witness is murdered, prompting him and the victim's boyfriend to investigate the crime that leads to a corrupt politician and a crooked football team owner.
Damon Wayans' character in the end jokingly quips Arnold Schwarzenegger's trademark line, "I'll be back!" Willis will later go on to co-star with Arnold in "The Expendables". Bruce Willis' character also mentions hitting an opponent in the face with a surfboard. This was the same slapstick death in 'Lethal Weapon 2' (1989).
Locker Room Kid:
Billy Cole. Billy Cole.
Head Coach: The first half stunk! Open the holes up! Get in there like hogs! Like pigs!
Locker Room Kid: Billy Cole. You got a call on line three.
Head Coach: Let's go out there in this half and kick some butt! Let's get out of this town as a winner! I hate Cleveland!
Joe hits the thug with a bottle and the thug says, "You bastard." Then Joe says, "And then some," without moving his lips.
The Finnish K16 version is heavily cut. It has lost several scenes entirely to the scissors. The whacked-put baseball player shooting other players in the beginning of the movie has been shortened, the beating of Willis in the alley, Willis shooting thugs from both hips, Willis bashing a guy's nose to his brains, Willis shooting thugs holding his gun inside a puppet, Damon Wayans' hand being shot is completely removed, and Willis killing "the bad guy" (him splattering to the helicopter is no more either).
