Slick, sure-footed entertainment, one part buddy comedy and one part police actioner stitched together with a dash of romance.

Between Lecce's illicit courtship and Reimers' consternation, there are some hearty laughs of a juvenile nature.

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.

One of the better buddy films from the 1980's.

An adequately wacky cops-and-robbers caper. Sharp dialogue and good chemistry between the actors make up for its routine plot twists.
| Original Score: 3/5

One of the best action comedy films to date. Estevez and Dreyfuss are the ultimate duo.

An OK cop-buddy film; nothing special here. Not one of Badham's best.

A mature human farce that values characters' foibles over their firearms.

Dreyfuss and his style are the two best things in "Stakeout," a movie that consists of a good idea surrounded by a bad one.
