According to Dave Chappelle on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986), a scene was written during filming in which his character was to wear a dress while disguised as a prostitute. Chappelle adamantly refused. The writers complained to the producers who then tried to convince Chappelle to do the scene but he still refused. According to Chappelle, he felt that it was part of a disturbing trend in which African-American men wear dresses in films. See more »
When Miles first enters police station there is a red hair in ponytail man with a beard in cuffs entering the scene with arresting officer holding him.
This exact same shot, with same actor wearing same outfit is seen later in the film with same arresting officer.
It's not used as a gag- it's laziness, as they just used same shot twice. See more »
I know that many people may not like this movie, but I thought it was very good. The plot was very simple and unique, the characters performed well, and the movie itself was very entertaining. There were some funny and memorable parts, including the famous oodles of noodles scene. In my opinion the funniest character in Blue Streak was Sulley. All of his parts were funny, and I feel he expressed his part very well. I recommend that you see this movie before Blue Streak 2 comes out in 2002. Overall, 8 of 10.
