Emilio Esteves and a nice change of pace by Aidan Quinn as a heavy.
While a familiar subject, the film is handled with panache, and the mix
of character comedy and action comes off well most of the way, although
it loses some balance by the end, with the acton taking a little too
much of the center stage, and the humor getting a bit lost.
Not amazing, or life-changing, but more fun and better made
than most 1980s mainstream Hollywood films.
Anyhow, even though the DVD's have no special features what so ever, they do however have pretty good picture and sound. Stakeout has always been one of my favorite movies for it's campy-ness and I'm glad Touchstone finally dedicated to release it.

If you haven't seen this movie, pick it up.
Richard Dreyfuss is really funny. The scene where he starts doin' his stupid little dance to The Rhythm is gonna Getcha just had me crackin' up.
Aidan Quinn is surprisingly effective as an escaped convict and do I need any words to describe how good Madeline Stowe looks... I didn't think so.
You'll laugh a whole lot.
Directed by John Badham (Wargames, Short Circuit, Nick of Time) brings an Engentic Action Comedy. Terrific Performances by Dryfuss and Estevez. Written by Jim Kouf (The Hidden, Another Skakeout). A winning film. Grade:A-.

This is a movie I liked when I was young and could never find it in the stores. It's a fun show and it's for everybody and the price is great. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Diana Daniels
Classic 80s action/comedy. Holds up well and its entertainment value is still very high. Avoid the sequel though...Published 18 months ago by Jason Schultz
