Just before Amanda Hunsaker hits the car, careful viewers can see that she actually falls on a big inflated bed with the car's picture on it. This is visible only for about half a second. See more »
[Riggs and Murtaugh pull up outside Dixie's house to check out a theory]

Your coat's on fire!

There is a dedication to Dar Robinson, a stuntman who died in a motorbike accident as Lethal Weapon was in Post-Production. See more »
Lethal Weapon is the first in a series of films that were all good. Richard Donner made an action packed buddy picture that everyone can enjoy. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover were both good in the lead roles and the action sequences are top notch. Kudos to Gary Busey for making a great bad guy.
