Street, Miami Beach.
As seen in Bad Boys
Filming Goof: Possibly due to the stunt work involved in the segment that was not
properly thought through. Earlier we saw that the window above the back door (#3)
had vent windows on the right side and an AC unit on the left. The window to the
left, second in from the north end (#2), is a single pane of glass, not vent windows
as the rest of the windows in the hotel are.
The window to the left (#2) with the single panes of glass is the one that Hatch
shoots Beaks thru.
Then Crockett bust into that room (window two)
1 2 3
But when he exits the window he has shifted over to window 3, above the back door
and it no longer has the vent glass and AC unit. Probably figured no one would notice.
