Trivia: During the "supercops" scene, you'll notice that Sergeant Taggart (actor John Ashton), with a very pained look on his face. That's becuse Eddie Murphy improvised this whole scene and John was pinching his thigh, desperately trying not to laugh out loud.

Trivia: The gay waiter who gives Foley the bananas is Damon Wayans, in a very early role. Wayans, years later, will portray a gay co-host of a public-access TV program on the early 1990s FOX variety show "In Living Color."

Trivia: Max Weinberg, the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and Conan O'Brien, has an unbilled cameo as one of Victor Maitland's guards.

Continuity mistake: When the police arrive at Victor's house the guards in the security room decide to run. At this time they are wearing guns in shoulder holsters. When you see them next, running out the door, they are unarmed. You see them again in the van, again with guns and shoulder-holsters.

Jeffery: Todd's looking for you. He is really pissed. You know what he said? This is your worst fuck up ever. Personally, I don't think that's true.

More quotes from Beverly Hills Cop

Question: Why did the bus do a 180? You never saw the semi truck in that shot, so why did it make an insane turn like that when the truck had nothing at all to do with it?

Answer: There might be a deleted scene showing an extended chase scene, but as it is, it seems out of place. From what I can tell, the road was slick, like something oily was spilt on the road during the chase. I don't think it's from the fruit and vegetable truck either. The bus looks like it's breaking suddenly (perhaps to avoid an unseen wreck) and skidded out and the driver over compensated, spinning the bus out. In fairness, a licensed bus driver would probably be able to control the bus in that situation, so it was exaggerated for the film. It probably should have been cut, but I'm guessing someone liked it and kept it in for more action.
