Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 04/18/1994
"...Stone offers Palance the opportunity to plumb deep inside his hard-boiled persona and extract a rich vein of humor and pathos..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/15/1994
"...Chase consistently underplays, and gains immeasurably from doing so....Palance has emerged in recent years as a hilarious comedian..."

Product Description:

Director Michael Ritchie teams up once again with FLETCH star Chevy Chase for this lighthearted comedy about a police officer who gets in over his head after he's forced to move in with a suburban family. When tough veteran cop Jake Stone (Jack Palance) and his rookie partner, Tony Moore (David Barry Gray), arrive at the doorstep of the mildly dysfunctional Robbersons in order to stake out a criminal living next door, he has no idea what he's getting into. Norman Robberson (Chase) is a bumbling idiot who has been reared on classic cop shows; his wife, Helen (Dianne Wiest), is a well-intentioned mom who's beginning to lose her positive outlook; and their three children are overwhelmingly excited by the arrival of the policemen--especially Cindy (Fay Masterson), who develops a severe crush on Moore. When Osborn (Robert Davi), the neighbor in question, begins to smell something afoul at the Robbersons, Norman finally gets the chance to act out his favorite cop show clich├ęs and aid in the criminal's apprehension. Along the way, the stakeout provides Jake with the close family ties he's been missing in his life. Ritchie's film is a sweet comedy that the whole family can enjoy.

Plot Synopsis:

When a grizzled cop moves into a family's home to stake out some hardened criminals next door, he gets more help than he bargained for from the inept man of the house.
