When Axel is rescuing the two kids from the damaged "Spider" ride at Wonderworld, the rope which he rescues them on grows several times between shots. In the first few shots, the rope clearly ends only a few feet down from where Axel and the children are hanging; there are obviously hundreds of feet between the end of the rope and the ground. In the next shot or two, the three of them are sliding down on a section of rope which was not previously there. And in the last few shots, Axel and the kids finish sliding down the rope (which now appears to end about one foot from the ground), and run to avoid being crushed under the falling carriage.

Look, isn't it just possible that you're mistaken, Foley? That Ellis Dewald just resembles Todd's killer?
I made the guy in Detroit. It was Dewald.
I mean, Dewald is the head of the largest private police department in Southern California. I mean, he works with us! With the L.A.P.D. Hell, with the governor's office! Everybody loves him.
Det. Sgt. William 'Billy' Rosewood:
He's even getting an award tonight from the National Association of Security Agencies.
Axel, it's understandable that you're distraught and-and looking for ...

I think "Beverly Hills cop III" was an extremely regrettable turning point in the nice career of one of the most talented and funniest black comedians Hollywood has ever seen - Mr. Eddie Murphy. Before it he used to be funny or at least much funnier. He appeared in the rather enjoyable flicks like "48 Hrs.", "Coming to America", "Another 48 Hrs.", "The Distinguished gentleman", "Boomerang" and of course "Beverly Hills cop I & II" - two beloved movies that'll always be his very best works.
Then someone decided to add part three in the so far terrific "Beverly Hills cop" saga. This time Axel Foley was on the mission of revenge and the comedy was unfortunately replaced by action. Who forgot that most of the glamour behind these movies came directly from the humor? Even though John Landis - the man behind hit comedies like "The Blues Brothers" and "Three Amigos!" - sat in the director's chair the end result just wasn't that funny anymore or at least it was funny very rarely and that's a bad thing if we compare part three to its absolutely hilarious precursors. ...and as it happened, after "Beverly Hills cop III" Eddie Murphy got roles from the movies like "Vampire in Brooklyn" (with only couple of excellent scenes), "Metro" (that apparently wasn't supposed to be funny in the first place), "Doctor Dolittle" (cute little film for kiddies who love furry animals that talk), "Holy man" (interesting but more confusing than amusing) and "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps" (definitely one of his worst movies, waste of his undisputed talents and a model example of a comedy that doesn't make you laugh).
Lately I saw "Life" and surprisingly it was pretty brilliant and alongside with fairly good "Bowfinger" it's the only completely clear exception in this course. What I'm saying is, "Beverly Hills cop III" started it all. Was it all just a coincidence or was it meant to be that Eddie Murphy's best years were in the 80's and early 90's? I can't tell. This is just the way I see things.
