The Murtaughs' family vehicle, parked in the driveway of the home, has the exact same license plate number as the big black Mercedes driven by the bad guys Riggs and Murtaugh chase on the freeway. See more »
This is by far my favorite out of all the Lethal movies. I love the first one two. I am a Lethal Weapon movie fan, so I like all of them, but the 4th is my favorite. It is the humor that I love.
Chris Rock and Joe Pesci are great together. I also love Renee Russo's character. It is nice to see such a strong female character in a action movie. Although I would have like to see her role bigger, she still had a good part. Although her role in the 3rd installment was a little better.
I would still like to see yet a 5th installment to see where everyone is now.
