Just watched Beverly Hills Cop and realized this is the film that has that funny pursuit of a truck I remember watching some time in the 80s.


Beverly Hills Cop 1984 Trailer:


Eddie Murphy is fun as hell and there are some cool car chases. About 10 minutes before the end, a large number of police cars arrive at the mansion where the final duel took place, and the manner in which all the cars arrive to the same spot from two different directions in front of the mansion reminds me so much of GTA San Andreas. Crazy as fuck. XD.png
One of the best soundtracks for a film too, by Harold Faltermeyer.

Here is the truck chase I mentioned:

We have double and triple trailers in the US. I was actually looking into the California laws for GTA V:



They are most commonly the short trailers, rarely long trailer combinations (tankers tend to use medium length trailers). Many states do not allow triple trailers for various reasons.


I believe the bus was making a hard (exaggerated) stop to avoid the fruit truck that was just demolished in the roadway (although it was pushed completely to the side so not much of an obstacle...) They probably just wanted to have a bus spinning because it looks "cool". Same thing for the white beetle and the stack of cop cars that ensues.

The hitch is a pintle hook/hitch. It is extremely common on commercial vehicles (large trucks with second or third trailers, landscapers, etc). The disconnection goes back to movie magic and the film crew wanting things to happen. Do you really think they just happened to get a shot of the hitch failing?

People say I'm crazy for running into burning buildings. I say I'm crazy because I do it for free.
