Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The director uses the conventions of the action-comedy in so adroit a way that you may even forget the hundred other films you've seen lately about a couple of cops kidding around with each other in between battling the bad guys.
Fresh: Slick, sure-footed entertainment, one part buddy comedy and one part police actioner stitched together with a dash of romance.
Fresh: You might want to stake out a theater near you.
Fresh: A mature human farce that values characters' foibles over their firearms.
plz iTunes!!!! No Rent!!!
Long time 2 looking forward to waiting!!!!!! Please provide not only rent but purchase!!!
Excellent Dreyfuss's performance.
One of Richard Dreyfuss’ funniest performances. I saw this when it first came out and years later it still makes me laugh. If you like this movie, watch Another Stakeout, which is just as funny.
