Just before the final gun battle, Rosewood is seen pulling out guns from an arsenal in his trunk. This is a nod to co-producer Don Simpson. According to Judge Reinhold in the 'making of' documentary for the first film, he recalls that the first time he met Simpson, the producer showed off his collection of guns in the trunk of his car.

Sequel to the hugely successful 1984 movies, this film was most unfairly slated by critics. I believe in some ways it is better than the original and certainly far, far better than the third installment. The story is, despite what everyone says, very engaging and keeps you watching the whole time. Eddie Murphy starred in Coming to America shortly after this, and then his career took a nosedive, although he seems to be making a comeback. If he is given more roles like this, he'll do better.
