In Stakeout, cop Richard Dreyfuss fell in love with Madeline Stowe, the woman he and his partner Emilio Estevez were watching during a police stakeout. Stowe's back in Another Stakeout, but her part is fleeting and unbilled. On the other hand, we get plenty of Dreyfuss and Estevez, still both as cantankerous and obnoxious as ever. This time, our two heroes are in search of a Mafia witness who has disappeared after an attempt on her life. While holed up in a judge's mansion, staking out the apartment where the woman may or may not return, the pair are subject to the comic aggravation of DA's assistant Rosie O'Donnell, who's brought her "darling" little rotweiler along for company. Another Stakeout works a little harder for its laughs than its predecessor; the best scenes go to Ms. O'Donnell and to nonplussed supporting players Dennis Farina and Marcia Strassman. … More

Critic Reviews for Another Stakeout
An unnecessary sequel with an ultra-annoying Rosie O'Donnell.
Unnecessary sequel to a forgettable film
Disappointing sequel still isn't unwatchable.
Blase' follow up to an amusing first film. Rosie O'Donnel, every square inch as annoying as you'd expect.
"the initial sparkle has all but faded"
Plays more like National Lampoon's Seattle Vacation than a sly comedy/drama about undercover cops.
Audience Reviews for Another Stakeout
A poorly made sequel, Another Stakeout is not a good film. I really didn't enjoy this film, and thought it was a sloppy action comedy with a fairly forgettable plot. The cast is pretty bad, and I'm not even sure why Rosie O'Donnell is in this, she can't even act, and she's not funny whatsoever. Another Stakeout fails in terms of a buddy cop comedy, and the chemistry between the three actors simply doesn't work this is a sloppily made film that doesn't do anything to entertain you. I like to watch something fun, but this film was more annoying. I felt the filmmakers failed to make a good film, and it just didn't have anything special about it. There's not one cast member that was good here, and they were just bland on-screen. This is a mediocre film, one that is not worth your time, and it could have been much better. As it stands, this is a flawed film that doesn't possess any funny parts. The film's cast bring it down, and as a whole it is a forgettable film that really isn't entertain. This film feels rushed, and it seems like the director really didn't care about the end result of his film. I think with a better cast, a better script and better director, this film might have been better than what it turned out to be. This film could have been much better, and it's a shame it wasn't. Mediocre to say the least, Another Stakeout is not really worth watching.More
