When Ray is planting the last bomb on George's Crown Vic, he reaches up past the oil filter to the distributor. The only engines with that configuration are the straight sixes, which were never used in Crown Vics or any police-package. All police cars of that era have V8s, which have the distributor on top in the center, where it's impossible to reach from the below. Ford puts the distributor at the front; GM & Chrysler at the rear. Also, the distributor clearly has only 7 wires - one for each of the 6 cylinders, and 1 from the coil. See more »
Now what about getting inside?
The place next door is a real-estate office. We pick the lock. We get in, and go through the wall. It is made of brick, like your brain. It's one foot thick, two layers.

I saw this movie with my dad. I must have been pretty young, around 15. It was on Star Movies one afternoon.The movie started a bit vaguely, but you could tell those robbers were gathering up for a score. It really caught pace after the first half hour.
All the actors are great, especially Blades and Lou Diamond. I Guess it's the ensemble, they just play so well together. I can watch this film anytime.I think it is the relative stupidity of the plot and the characters trying to deal with a very weird score. The jokes are not corny but they are subtle and extreme at the same time that make them so hilarious.
A perfect comedy for a lazy afternoon.
