Richard Dreyfuss is really funny. The scene where he starts doin' his stupid little dance to The Rhythm is gonna Getcha just had me crackin' up.
Aidan Quinn is surprisingly effective as an escaped convict and do I need any words to describe how good Madeline Stowe looks... I didn't think so.
You'll laugh a whole lot.
Anyhow, even though the DVD's have no special features what so ever, they do however have pretty good picture and sound. Stakeout has always been one of my favorite movies for it's campy-ness and I'm glad Touchstone finally dedicated to release it.
5 Stars for the Movie

If you haven't seen this movie, pick it up.
Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez, are very good together as police detective partners, and all the supporting cast is just great, including Aidan Quinn as the villain
Richard Dreyfuss and Madeleine Stowe are a rather unlikely paring. He is quite a bit older than she is, but the audience sees how good the writing and directing and acting are, when the heat that Dreyfuss and Stowe create, shows the genius casting, instead of making Dreyfuss the married guy, and sticking Estevez and Stowe together, since he was quite the hearthrob as part of the "Brat Pack" back then
Dreyfuss has been cast very successfully as a leading man, several times, even though he is only about 5' 6" and not extremely handsome.
However, he has loads of charisma, and the roles he's chosen give him a chance to showcase it.
I am a straight woman, but Stowe is SO beautiful, you almost can't take your eyes off her. And the sensual way SHE was going after Dreyfuss was completely believable, and on FIRE!
AND, what I really liked, was they didn't do any tricks to make Dreyfuss look taller.
At the end of the movie, he is standing next to the FBI agent he had confronted earlier in the film, and he only comes up to the guy's shoulder, but his big personality more than makes up for it.
The way the last scene between Dreyfuss and Stowe is shot and written gives me goose bumps every time I see it, and it was made almost 30 years ago.
The scene starts out shot from behind Dreyfuss, looking at Stowe as he walks toward her.Read more ›
