Beverly Hills Cop
Beverly Hills Cop mistake picture

Other mistake: After the early truck chase, Axel arrives at the police station. He walks through a glass door that reads 'Investigaton Operations Division' which is missing the last 'i' in the first word, exactly as I've typed it here. (00:08:10)

Other mistake: The bit part actor who plays one of Rosewood and Taggart's colleagues on the force is credited as "Owensby" on his desk sign (in the scene where Bogomil is asking where everybody is) and as "Owenby" on the end credits.

Other mistake: When Maitland shoots Axel in his house, he has a large calibre hand gun. The shot was in Axel's right arm, just below the shoulder, apparently straight on, as only one hole is seen. The hole was way too small for the size gun and should have easily penetrated into his lungs making it difficult for Axel to breathe. It also would have damaged the bone in his arm making it impossible for him to use it.

Suggested correction: Depends on the ammo being used. Maitland seems to be firing a .357 Magnum revolver.

stiiggy

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Axel throws the art dealer's henchman onto the buffet table, if you watch carefully (or use slow-mo) you can see the stunt double pulling off that manoeuvre. There is also a stunt double being thrown over the table.

Question: When Axel and Mikey return from the bar, Axel opens the door to his apartment, goes in and - almost immediately - two thugs come out of a hideaway and catch Mikey, beat him up then shoot him. Why Axel didn't come to investigate? Is he deaf or something?

Answer: Axel gets knocked out by one of the thugs as soon as he opens the door. His boss later make mention of the fact that he's lucky he didn't get killed too. They probably spared him because he didn't see who hit him and therefore could not tell anyone what they looked like.
