Another 48 Hrs.
- When Reggie is calling his old friends to try and borrow money, one of the men he calls is named "Willie Biggs". In the original screenplay for the first movie, Willie Biggs was the original name of 'Eddie Murphy' (I)'s character. Murphy requested that the name be changed because he thought it was a "generic black name," and the character became Reggie Hammond.
- Character actor Frank McRae was cast as Haden, Nick Nolte's boss, the same part he played in 48 Hrs.. His part was almost completely cut from this picture. If you look closely in one of the shots in the police precinct, McRae appears on camera for a few seconds. He was uncredited for the role.
- Nick Nolte appears heavier in the role than usual because when shooting started, he was still carrying the weight he gained for Q & A.
