Format: DVD
Enjoyable buddy cop movie with good performances by Richard Dreyfus,
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.

There have been lots of movies that Ive seen that have made me laugh from time to time while watching, but 1987's "Stakeout" with Richard Dreyfuss was one of the best comedies of the 80s. Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez play two joking and bumbling police detectives, who are assigned to a seemingly boring stakeout of the house of an escaped criminal's girlfriend. After Dreyfuss though, broken up after his wife leaves, falls in love with the focus of their investigation...he digs a hole for himself so deep he finds it hard to be a lover AND a cop at the same time. Its a perfect scenerio, when Dreyfuss does his best to keep his relationship across the street from the eyes of his collegues, and himself out of trouble. The only one who knows of this escapade is Estevez, who watches the hilarious antics of his partner through a camera across the street. Until I saw this movie I never took notice of Richard Dreyfuss, and I saw the Emilio Estevez of the 80s in many troublemaking roles of hard-core youth kinda movies like "That Was Then, This Is Now". Needless to say this hysterical movie is was a different and perfectly played out comedy...that worked so well they HAD to make a sequal: "Another Stakeout". The 1998 movie "This Is My Father"'s Aidan Quinn was the perfect bad guy in "Stakeout", this time without the heavy brogue. What can I say, it's a great movie, give it a try if you like the actors.

I awaited this DVD release along with the sequel and Down and Out in Beverly Hills. All three (3) of these movies offer nothing, not even the trailers were on these DVD's. Very dissapointing. Instead they put 2 trailers of other releases they have coming out.
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.
5 Stars for the Movie
4 Stars for the Picture & Sound
1 Star for the Special Features
If you haven't seen this movie, pick it up.

Forget about the lack of ethics of Dreyfuss' character, the immaturity of all of the cops involved, and the predictability of the story ... the film is just a real pleasure to watch.
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.

This was a movie that I had watched a long time ago and decided to get it in DVD. It had been a long time since I'd seen it and one of the reasons why I chose this movie was because I liked Richard Dreyfuss as I had seen him in other movies and rather liked him. I have to admit that this movie is NOT as good as some of the other movies that I have with him in it, but I still feel that it, at least, is still good enough for me to keep in my DVD library.
