Beverly Hills Cop II

Trivia: In the scene where Foley first visits Rosewood's apartment, he at some point pauses and looks at a poster of Sylvester Stallone from the movie "Cobra" (1986). Stallone was originally supposed to star in Beverly Hills Cop (the first one) as Axel Foley (or his name was going to be Axel "The Cobra" Cobretti). The script was changed for Eddie Murphy, removing a large amount of the action sequences from the movie. Many of those sequences were later used in "Cobra." The shot of Foley looking at the poster is a reference to this fact.

Trivia: The cement truck that Billy drives has a sticker saying DS/JB Construction Company. DS and JB stand for the film's producers, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer.

Trivia: The black valet who receives Axel Foley and Billy Rosewood in the cement truck in front of the playboy mansion is played by a very young Chris Rock (by some declared to be the Eddie Murphy of our day).

Trivia: Not sure if this counts as trivia, but it's a freaky coincidence. When Axel is looking on Sidney's computer at the Visa application and travel for Maxwell and Karla, the date listed is 9/11 (1986).

Trivia: When Rosewood and Taggart are first at the house Axel "borrowed", Rosewood says "maybe the Pointer Sisters live here." The Pointer Sisters are featured in the film's soundtrack with the song "Be There." They were also featured in the first film.

Continuity mistake: The guy in the armored car's passenger seat disappears and reappears during the chase.
