The number of times that the coach bus was said by Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy) to have flipped over was seventeen times (at one point in time, he says it flipped over twenty times). This though was an exaggeration and was considerably less than this amount. See more »
There are various instances of firearms shooting far more bullets than they carry in real life in the film. The most noticeable is during the nightclub shootout where first Willie Hickok then Reggie fire a combined 14 bullets from the same 6 shot revolver without reloading. See more »

I have to admit this film has a 'Have I met you before' feeling to it. But then most sequels do. Same characters, same personalities leads to some of the stuff being same-ish. Yet I ask you, how many people do you know that drastically change overnight? Not that many. So the same characters having the same reactions and habits to similar situations is not that far fetched. Hill Street Blues characters didn't change that much either yet it stayed entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The acting is of a very high quality and so are some of the action scenes. And there is a twist in the film I didn't see coming. So all in all, not a classic yet highly entertaining, and that is what it was supposed to do.
