Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
Eddie Murphy came up with the original idea and the title for the film during a conversation with Keenen Ivory Wayans. Wayans asked Murphy's permission to use the idea.
Producer Peter McCarthy persuaded John Cusack, with whom he had worked before, to appear in the last big shoot-out scene as a delivery boy. He was shot multiple times and was burned by several of the nearly 20 squibs attached to his body. They didn't use the scene.
Ron O'Neal was offered a role. He turned it down because he was tired of being typecast as Super Fly (1972). O'Neal later appeared in the television spin-off Hammer, Slammer, & Slade (1990).
