Goofs

In the television version of the movie, an escaped criminal is thrown from the hood of a police car, and is apprehended by Callahan. Although she applies handcuffs to the criminal in close-up, a wide shot reveals the handcuffs are secured around only one of his wrists, as he is holding the unsecured cuff in his free hand behind his back.

Why so Low?
10 December 2003 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Why is this movie rated so low? I admit that it is the fourth in the series and that is getting pretty ridiculous but this one has many memorable moments in it. Also where else can you go see Sharon Stone, David Spade, and a speacial appearance by a young kid at the time named Tony Hawke. No where else can you get so many people in one of their first movies. It is also still highly entertaining and causes me to laugh often. This is where you should stop watching the series however b/c they lose Steve Guttenburg and he is the only reason the series kept on for as long as it did. So don't give this a low score. Help it get out of the lowest 100 where other real horrible films belong.
