Stakeout (1987)
Acclaimed director John Badham delivers a winning combination of action, suspense, comedy, and romance! Convinced that a dangerous escaped convict (Aidan Quinn) is headed for his ex-girlfriend’s (Madeleine Stowe), a pair of Seattle detectives (Richard Dreyfuss, Emilio Estevez) stake out her apartment. The watch remains routine until one of the detectives begins a high-risk romance with the woman under surveillance – jeopardizing not only the partners’ careers … but also their lives!

I think this is one of the under-appreciated movies from the 1980s. It blends realistic action and comedy well, without taking itself too seriously. I agree with reviewers that Dreyfuss in this movie proves he was very good at comedy movies if they were written well, like this was. And Aidan Quinn is very good also (in fact, from “Desperately Seeking Susan” in 1985, to “Stakeout,” to 1994’s “Legends of the Fall” he has consistently given reliably good performances). For a late 1980s movie, it has aged fairly well. It’s almost hard to believe that this movie came out only two years after Estevez was in “The Breakfast Club.” I wish there were more movies like this that blended action and comedy as well as “Stakeout” did.
