Audience Reviews for Another Stakeout

  • Dec 03, 2014
    So you made a film back in the day and it was a success both at the cinema and videoshop. The two stars of the movie are still big and can still pull in an audience, you yourself now have some swing within Hollywood and lets be need a new project to keep your career on a high-ish. What better way to do that than completely rehashing your successful movie by...errr completely remaking it all over again but in a different location and with a new star (for the time) to the roster. Yep so the plot is virtually the same as the first movie, no shame here folks. The dynamic duo are back again and instructed to go on another stakeout in a nice woody lakeside well to do area. They are watching out for a witness against the mafia (after a botched assassination) who may or may not be coming to this lovely house. But the funny thing is...wait for it...this time they have a female DA officer along with them to play husband and wife with Dreyfuss. That's not all, she's brought her huge rottweiler along too...ey up we're in for some mighty big laughs now! Did I mention the new DA officer is Rosie O'Donnell? well there you go. I ask you...can you think of anything better than this? can this not be funny? Oh wait...its not funny in the slightest. Everything here has been dumbed down and made more family friendly basically, not that the original movie was an adult movie but this is just childish. Most of the plot now revolves around how silly this family unit can be with Estevez as the son, Dreyfuss as the dad and O'Donnell as the mum. Every scene is pretty much an embarrassing bumbling slapstick comedy routine with infantile dialog and cliched predictable visual gags...some of which naturally revolve around the big dog. Literately nothing happens for the majority of the movie until the final long dinner sequence where there is lots more awful dialog. Heck even the action (if you can even call it that...which you can't) is weak as fuck, its virtually a children's movie at times. Dreyfuss character seems to have been somewhat neutered this time around and doesn't have the same zest as before. Yes he is obviously an older character but the plot doesn't allow him to do anything. The same goes for Estevez, in the first movie he was pretty much a sidekick, here he has a little more to do admittedly but again its very lame and uninteresting really. Its nice to see Ferrer playing a bad guy again, haven't seen that for awhile, blast from the past. The only problem being like everything else its a very tame watered down role which has absolutely no bite about it. The bad guys in this movie are so uneventful I can hardly bring myself to call them bad guys, they're just a bit naughty and they wear black. As for O'Donnell well this was another time wasn't it, a different ear where O'Donnell was actually kinda big (in both senses...zing!). I guess she adds to the humour at times but her character just comes across like this sequel...not required, horseshoed in, crowbarred in, forced and pointless. I really don't know what Badham was trying to do here, you could have a sequel to this but going down this route was a huge error. Basically remaking it with one extra cop for comedy relief...oh and a big dog...pfft! I mean really, who wants to see Dreyfuss' character have relationship issues (again) with Stowe (from the first movie, must have needed rent money) whilst staking out Dennis Farina who does nothing. Then in the background Estevez is constantly moaning about having to shave his moustache off which appears to be the movies main gag. This literately is like watching an actual stakeout where nothing actually happens, I'm boring myself writing this!

    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.

    This movie was very funny. I saw this one a long time ago and I liked it very much. The story is about some private detectives trying to spy on some suspects and things go very wrong.
