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 »
Miles tells the cops he is a "federale" that is a common translation error from english to "spanglish". Correct translation is "federal" for singular and "federales" for plural. See more »
I dont know why this movie is hated by so many people. It's funny, action packed and Martin Lawrence and the rest of the cast give good performances. Sure it's pretty unbelievable but so are most movies out there. Also, the film has a solid car chase scene at the end which is a solid way to end a fine film. The opening heist scene is also pretty good as well, a good way to start the film. Also the shootout at the grocery store is very funny, as well as several other scene's. Highly Recommended, for anyone who likes action-comedies. 4/5
