James Carter: Hey Lee! What are you doing? Lee: ...Dancing James Carter: Dancing! Man, im up here working, putting my life on the line, and you up here messing around, dancing with some Bimbo... Does she have a friend?
  • Jackie Chan's favorite number is 32. The gangster's car has a license plate of 32 and when Lee spits the grenade onto the roulette table it lands on 32 when it explodes.
  • The scene where Carter and Lee are running down the street naked in Hong Kong was an actual take; production could not block the street off for the shoot.
  • Chris Penn was initially to reprise his role of Clive from the first film.
  • Chris Tucker ad-libbed many different versions of his short speech to Hu Li at the end of their fight. Brett Ratner felt the speech was not working and told Tucker to call her a "bitch". Tucker refused to say the word and it took hours of convincing by Ratner before Tucker finally agreed.
  • On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), Chris Tucker said that while he was filming this movie in Hong Kong, many locals mistook him for NBA star Kobe Bryant. In the film, while Tucker's character is running up the stairs, the old woman shouts "Move out of the way, Kobe" to him.
