There was every intention to make Loaded Weapon 2. A deal had been set in place before this movie had gone into production and a poster had even been printed with the caption "Oh come ON, you knew it was coming!" However when the movie underperformed the deal was severed.
Film debut of Denise Richards. She plays one of Denis Leary's four girlfriends in the scene where he's playing the piano. Charlie Sheen, who had a cameo as the valet attendant as a favor to his brother Emilio Estevez, would marry Richards about ten years after this film was made and they would divorce soon after.

This was originally intended to be a film based on the Sledge Hammer! (1986) TV series, as the show's creator, Alan Spencer, had a deal with New Line to produce a film for them. However, Spencer hated all of the scripts that were handed to him (since they did not meet the show's plot or tone) and severed ties shortly after.
