Jonas,
When they were driving the silver Ferrari is WAS a 550. When the car was standing it was a 575. I do know the different between my car and a 575.

Bart, If not seen the movie, only trailers and previews. And you only see the Ferrari driving in those clips, and I instantly recognized it because of the headlights. It's a 575 when moving also. I have not seen anything in the previews yet, that proves it's a 550. But I haven't seen the whole thing yet :-)

Just saw it.
If the car is moving, it is a 550.
If the car is standing still, it is a 575.

I just saw the movie last night. It was 2 1/2 hours long but it didn't have one slow part. It was definitely more violent than the last one but I enjoyed it a lot. I also found it interesting that the villan's Miami house in the movie is actually Viscaya. The Miami area guys will know what I am talking about. As far as I know it's an old house that has been turned into a museum. I've been there before and it's quite beautiful. It's located between the Downtown Brickell Ave area and Coconut Grove.

Okay, I just got the full scoop on the house they blew up:

A Coca Cola heir bought the land in Delray Beach and was building the house. When it was about 80% complete, there was a kidnapping threat on the man's son. He then decided not to live there and put the unfinished house on the market. The person that bought it wanted to divide it into three lots (for which he was selling for a combined total of $17m). He put the ad in the magazine, they used it in the movie, he sold the three lots. It turns out that I am a partner in some beach property 1/2 mile away from that site. My other partner looked at buying the land from the Coca Cola guy so he knew the story.

My parents live in Boca Raton, FL and my sister lives in Delray Beach, on the ocean. She had mentioned that a house was blown up for a movie and the owner had advertised in a magazine. I'll ask her and see if this was the movie and find out where the house was.
Incidentally, South Florida is a place where excess is common. I went to a boarding school in Boca Raton for middle and high school and I saw much of this. A popular trend right now with the high end real estate is that much of what was built recently, even 5 years ago, gets scraped and new mansions go up. It is unbelievable.

It this is Buick's idea of product placement, they goofed badly. Ninety percent of the young kids around me (and they would know) thought it was a Chrysler Prowler.

Buick Blackhawk. It's a concept car. I think it was in this purple colour, not black. But it was a night scene, so difficult to tell.

Who saw Bad Boys? What was the black car (make and model) that Will Smith drove to his captain's house just after Martin accidently took the blue pills. What type of car was that? The movie was great.
Thanks.

Jonas,
When I first drove my 550, I did not use the horn for a long time. When I first blew it, I was very surprised. Very tinny. Sounded as if on a toy car. If course, it is not.

I noticed the same thing as far as the badges go. I must say the 575 sounded awesome! Do they really sound that good? Most clips I've heard didn't sound that good.

Definitely it was a 575M (no fog lights in the front bumper).

The color is Titanium/black and it looked like it was 6 speed.

Another details thing I noticed the Shields are MAGNETIC kinds since the fender is not depressed to house the shields.

I haven't seen the movie, but I think they used two cars, because the interior shots are clearly 575 (realize, im looking at the trailer here), but the exterior shots in front are 550, it seems.

Either way, I need to go see it.

It sounds like that in real life, it's an airhorn. And no, it was not a 550. It was a 575. You can tell by the headlights and some other small insignificant differences. :-)

This is taken from IMDB.com's site. This quote is from the trivia section for Bad Boys II.


quote:

Scenes from the movie were filmed at the "Bird" house in Delray Beach, Florida. The mansion stood nearly completed and vacant for years before it was purchased. The new owner advertised in Variety for a movie company to use the mansion in a movie and blow it up.

I care. I personally think that it is very sad to see something perfectly usable get turned into a mountain of trash. Especially since there are millions of people in this country and around the world who have very little personal posessions or wealth and have to work so hard just to survive.

Yeah, but it's those millions of people with little wealth and posessions that go to those movies and create the demand for an action film where someone destroys a house.

Arlie, if it was a real house then yes it was sad but on the + side think of all the people who got paid making this movie. I think that more than makes up for thedestruction of a nice house.

Hell of a lousy neighborhood anyways

Just got back from the movie. It’s just my opinion but the movie just wouldn’t have been the same without the house explosion. I suppose they could have cut from the action for a few minute and Will Smith could have given a little speech:
“This house was going to be blown up for the movie but the cast and crew of “Bad Boys II” have decided instead to donate it to the needy. So if you all in the audience please imagine that the house blew up it would be much appreciated”
But they didn’t do it. They blew the sucker up and it was Fvckin cool. And guess what.... they also destroyed a bunch of other stuff in the movie. They will probably make a sh!tload of money because people want to go to movies and see lots of action and stuff getting blown up. Skip the explosions and the movie doesn't make money. In my opinion it's better to destroy and make money that could build the house ten times over if desired.

Speaking of waste, one of the DuPont family members used to regularly drive Lincoln Town cars into his pond. This is the same guy who shot an Olympic wrestler to death. He was also known to enjoy cruising around his wooded estate in an armoured vehicle. He would clamber out with his head bleeding from banging around inside the Bradlee. Funkycomadina.

The house was already slated for destruction. This way, at least a movie scene was salvaged out of it as well. I guess it's about economic efficiency.

Robert Donahue once bought a $7 million property next to his and had the structure razed. He claimed hobos were living in it. It was later revealed that he just didn't like the way its contemporary styling clashed with his traditional house, even though they were quite far apart.

It was an architecturally significant house, and the architect had used a cluster of pencils as his inspiration, rather like the Sears Tower. Now that was a sad waste. Why couldn't Mr. Donahue have built a day-care centre or done something socially productive with it, instead of adding to the acres of lawn he already had?

"Unless the carpenters, plumbers,and electricians were unpaid or slave labor who cares."

Especially since there are millions of people in this country and around the world who have very little personal posessions or wealth and have to work so hard just to survive. The workers at the Ferrari factory get paid. Why don't we all chip in an buy a brand new Enzo and run over it with a bulldozer? Wouldn't that be fun???

Okay I was told the story of the house by a cute little red-head at the beach, when I moved to Florida last year. But she seemed to have good local info.

She said a member of the "Coca-Cola" family had the home built, but as he got ready to move in, he went jogging around the block and got robbed.

He came back and said- he had no idea it was such a bad neighborhood, he wanted nothing to do with the house and sold it to a developer.

Unless the carpenters, plumbers,and electricians were unpaid or slave labor who cares. It's not like they blew up the White House or something. Lots of stuff gets destroyed everyday for any number of reasons. Get over it.

Off to see the movie now...

The house was a REAL house somewhere in Florida if I remember correctly. I videotaped Access Hollywood here at work a few months back. The house was a REAL mansion that had been almost completed, then was bought by a developer. The land that the house was sitting on was to be divided into 3 sections. The total selling value of the 3 sections of land was worth far more than the single piece of land with the unfinished house. So the house owner advertised in some Hollywood trade magazines looking for anyone needing to destroy a complete house!!! The Bad Boys II movie production company took them up on the offer. Very sad to see such a fantastic house totally destroyed before it was ever used. Just think of all the work that the carpenters, plumbers,and electricians put into that house, only to have it completely destroyed just to level the land it was standing on.

The house was just a shell they threw up, not a real house. It might have been on a set in LA but it would have taken some editing. I would say it was in Puerto Rico maybe Mexico

From what I gathered in an interview of Michael Bay (director) on TV, the house was in LA.

it was hilarious LOL :-) The scenes with the Ferrari were great too, They put the 575 in a very good light.

The Island where I live just off of Brickell is prominetly displayed & most of the movie was filmed in or near my neighborhood :-)

well guys you get a little of both. i think that it is way better than the 1st. there is more action than T&A. let me pre-warn yall the ferrari gets a little messed up. it is really only used in 1 or 2 sets. the movie is very long 2 1/2 hours. there is a great scene with a H2, and a beautiful that gets blown up. it is amazing how they pick up right were the last movie left all. all the same comedy as there was in the 1st. and there is a scene with rats that the place was busting out laughing for a few minutes. so well worth seeing.

I hope that it's not just a bunch of T&A and action scenes all over. THe greatest thing about the original was that most of the movie was absolutely hysterical dialogue / situations, without relying on flashy effects.
