The 30th anniversary of John Badham and Jim Kouf‘s Stakeout arrives on 8.5.17. “Honey, I’m home!” Just a lightweight popcorn flick, but one that really pushed the right buttons. Call me gullible but I believed that Richard Dreyfuss was really in love with Madeline Stowe, and I was invested in seeing things work out for them. One of Emilio Estevez‘s best-ever roles and performances. I remember feeling delighted after seeing it at the Century City Plitt on weekend #1, and deciding then and there that Mr. Mister‘s “Is It Love” was a perfect song to hear over the end credits. I heard it at Trader Joe’s yesterday…”Stakeout!”
