Stakeout Reviews:

I really enjoyed this movie! It's filled with laughs and excitement, and never once was I not entertained. Next to "48 Hours" I think this is one of the greatest buddy cop films I have yet seen. Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez create a unbelievable team, with dead-on chemistry. Dreyfuss steals the present with his hilarious performance, proving he's just as talented at doing broad comedy as he is intense drama. That especially shows in the stage where he's about to walk out of Madeline Stowe's house, but doesn't wish to be recognized, so he asks her to lend him a hat. The method he handled that stage was so magnificent, and there are many another farcical moments that he handled just as efficiently, and with the wrong timing and delivery those scenes could've collapsed. Estevez plays the straight man, also doing a superb job, and you really feel his envy when he's spying on Stowe, who's being hit on by Dreyfuss. I loved the scenes where the rival cops pulled pranks on every other. Speaking of which, Forrest Whitaker pops up in a fine early performance. And Madeline Stowe is nice and sexy, as always. Sure, the plot is quite predictable, but as I told I was everytime entertained, thanks to sharp writing and nice performances. John Badham is a fine action director, so he kept those action scenes filled with suspense and tension. "Stakeout" is not a movie that will hold your brain occupied--as a matter of fact there are some scenes that require you to check your brain at the door--but I assure you that you'll have a damn nice time. My score: 8 (out of 10)


Somewheres in between 'Beverly Hills Cop' and 'Lethal Weapon' you search this. Nice cop/buddy action flick, plenty of humour, the violence is for real, the chemistry between the two leads and Stowe Just right. I play the stage where she shifts her position JUST so slightly, its quite erotic, while the pranks the two cops enjoy on every another are quite funny too.Its fun watching how place out Estevez gets with the older guy whose clearly not acting his age.There's nothing terribly deep here, and some of its really dated-Lethal Weapon-ish graphics, the cars, the mad black team leader, the music(Miami Sound Machine, anyone?), etc, traditional boatchase/fight/battle to the death inside hellacious warehouse/factory finale, etc all par for the course.But no biggies. The second one wasn't nearly as good's this one.*** outta ****


There is something about Richard Dreyfuss that makes me think of George Clooney. I trust Clooney is one of a very several slate of actors that can create any stage work no matter how nice or terrible it is written. Dreyfuss is like that too. I remember a particular stage in Jaws when he brings wine over to Brody's house and Brody cracks it launch and decides to drink from it. Dreyfuss tries to warn him by saying, " You might wish to allow that breathe.... nothing, nothing. " He takes a tiny stage and makes it that much more interesting by his perfect interpretations of who they are. Chris Leece is his greatest acting since the seventies. He is so much fun to watch and it is his relationship with Bill ( Estevez ) and the another two stakeout cops ( one of them being a very funny Forest Whitaker ) that create this movie a treat to watch. Its strengths are its dialogue and acting, and although Badham directs a quick and frenzied movie ( much like Beverly Hills Cop ) some of the film just doesn't fit, especially the end where it resorts to Bruce Willis strategies and ends with explosions and death. But that aside the movie excels, and it is a very funny movie written by the same guy that had a hand in The Fugitive.Here we have a movie about two cops ( Dreyfuss and Estevez ) that are assigned to watch the home of the girlfriend of an escaped convict that may be on his method back to see her. Dreyfuss ends up getting a tiny too close to his topics and before long he ends up falling in love with her. This puts Bill in an awkward case because not only is it vs the guidelines and ethics, but he has to actually cover for Chris during briefings with his superiors and he also has to hold the another two cops on the stakeout from finding out about Chris' involvement with their subject. The subject's name is Maria and she is played with richness by Madeline Stowe ( The General's Daughter ).Some of the hilarity in this movie lies with the two sets of cops trying to out do one other in their pranks. It seems that they have worked on stakeouts together before and it is shenanigans like leaving dog poop in the fridge and putting marker on the rims of the binoculars that add some great comedy to the routine. Dreyfuss also has one hilarious line that had me laughing for quite some time. When they first receive their description of who it is that they are watching, it describes Maria as 5'5 and 342 pounds. " 342 pounds! OHHH, she should be the house! "The movie works nice as a comedy and only so so as a violent action film. I think the movie would have benefitted if it stuck strictly to comedy and instead of reverting to a chase and explosions at the end, they should have written it better so that it is resolved with words and comic genius, just like the rest of the film. But overall this movie is worth seeing for its hilarity.**** One final note. Chris and Bill have film line contests. It is a nice method to pass the time and when Bill asks Chris the one line " Well this was not a boating accident. " Chris doesn't know. That is a great touch seeing as it was Dreyfuss' Matt Hooper from Jaws that told that. That's a great piece of inside Hollywood and it plays really well.
