STAKEOUT: While on an FBI stakeout, detective Chris Lecce (Richard Dreyfuss) falls hard for Maria (Madeleine Stowe), the woman he's supposed to be watching. Soon he's inside her home enjoying a torrid love affair, while his young partner Bill Reimers (Emilio Estevez), waits across the street, looking through his binoculars and fuming. But the woman's ex-boyfriend (Aidan Quinn), a crazed, escaped convict who is the real object of the stakeout, is on his way back to see her and poses a very dangerous threat to the new couple. Director John Badham's entertaining blend of action and humor highlights the comic timing and chemistry between Dreyfuss and Estevez, who deliver first-rate performances.
ANOTHER STAKEOUT: In this sequel to director John Badham's STAKEOUT, Seattle detectives Chris Lecce (Richard Dreyfuss) and Bill Reimers (Emilio Estevez) are assigned another stakeout operation. When Lu Delano (Cathy Moriarty), an important witness against the Mafia mysteriously disappears, the district attorney's office comes up with an elaborate scheme to recover her. She is thought to be hiding out with the O'Haras, a local family on a Pacific Northwest island, and Lecce and Reimers are assigned to watch over the household. However, they are joined by a new supervisor, federal prosecutor Gina Garret (Rosie O'Donnell) and her "loveable" rottweiler Archie. Posing as an all-American family, Lecce, Reimers, and Garrett move in next-door to the O'Haras in a hilarious battle of the wills. Mayhem ensues as the trio attempt to keep their operation a secret and stay one-step ahead of the Mafia.
