Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): At the "Black Awareness Rally," Cleo whispers, "Plug the new salad bar!" The next scene includes a walk-through of McDowell's, with no salad bar.
  • Director John Landis and Eddie Murphy did not get along and Murphy vowed to never work with Landis again. However, the two later reconciled and Eddie personally asked John to direct Beverly Hills Cop 3.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In virtually every shot with Arsenio Hall's barber shop character, his wide glasses reflect the large light reflection screens used in the shot.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Akeem and Lisa were walking through the park at night, just after they walked under a bridge, you could seen the twin towers in the background. Then they came upon the Duke brothers sleeping in the rubble. Akeem gave them the wad of money, then he and Lisa started walking again. They immediately walked under the SAME BRIDGE again, and there you could see the twin towers in the background again. Somehow the Duke brothers moved without moving!
