Johnny Tapia's Miami mansion is actually an enormous estate known as "Vizcaya". It was built by industrialist James Deering in the early 20th century as his "winter home". The estate is now a public museum and its gardens are a popular spot for weddings.

When the police car flips over, you can see the compressed air gadget that the stuntmen used to flip the car over, on the underside of the car.
I've got a Police Commissioner so far up my ass, if he spits it's coming out of my mouth.
Bad Boys is Bad Ass (Retort to "bad is the right word for title")
I think us movie buffs sometimes forget that not all movies are made to
have some sort of under lying message that can or will change our
lives. That's why it pains me to see some users give this film a bad
review because "the dialog is weak" or "the scenery isn't vibrant" or
something along those lines. This is not a stab or an insult to you,
but what I'm saying is; sometimes movies are made with one intended
purpose… ENTERTAINMENT! I could careless if this film had poor
actors, poor script, poor lighting, that doesn't matter when you watch
an action film. This movie delivers your monies worth too, in my
opinion Will Smith and Martin Larwence make such a great team that part
of the fun is just watching these two get into it from time to time.
And with Michael Bay directing, you know you're going to get some good
action scenes. Let's face it, Bad Boys II has one of the best car chase
scenes ion recent history, it dominates the dismal over played chase in
Matrix Reloaded which was the other big summer sequel of that year. I
think all that needs to be said here in a retort is the movie is an
action movie ans needs to be looked at as an action movie. To hell with
the elements that the Academy looks at, appreciate the film for all the
stuff that blows up and the laughs the cast can bring you to.
