The police station is actually a façade that was bolted onto the Los Angeles Central Public Library. The façade itself took the production department five weeks to build, and another one and a half weeks to attach to the Library. See more »
When the cable was cut, the pulley, along with Miles, should have dropped to the ground. There was no momentum for a swing in either direction. See more »
Prison Guard #37:
One belt, one shoelace, one wallet containing twenty-two dollars.
One shoelace? Yo, man. Do you know how much them shoes cost? One shoelace? I came in here with two. You took my shoelace? Did you take my shoelace, man?

You got two seconds to walk out that door. Sign out and leave my pen.

"Blue Streak" is an enjoyable film that stars one of the funniest comedians in the business, Martin Lawrence. Lawrence is teamed with Luke Wilson as they take on the bad guys using humor.
From the very beginning, I knew that "Blue Streak" would be funny and interesting. The only requirement was to sit back and relax so the movie can carry me through. The story was quite unique having a thief pretend to be a police detective determined to collect a jewel left behind from a previous heist.
To make the plot better and more interesting the writers make Lawrence's character in charge of the burglary division. Wilson didn't really add to the story and seemed to fill a role of sidekick. It was a pleasure to see William Forsythe in a role that did not have playing a villain. Overall, "Blue Streak" worked for me.
