Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Eddie Murphy's film debut.
  • Eddie Murphy states in his 2008 Biography special that his character's name was originally scripted to be "Willie Biggs." He had concerns with that name as it sounded too much like a "Hollywood, made-up, black guy's name." He suggested the last name Hammond based on a raspy-voiced, cool kid from his hometown named Terrance Hammond. Reggie was a compromise by having just the first name be a typical "Hollywood, made-up, black guy name."
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Reggie takes the knife from the redneck, he closes it and places it on the bar with his right hand before breaking the glasses and being told where Billy Bear's girlfriend lives. When he turns around and talks to the people in the club, the knife is clearly still on the bar. He then walks out to the street where he takes it from his back left pocket and gives it to Cates.
  • Kris Kristofferson was at one point considered for the role of 'Jack Cates'.
