During the first arrest at the fish processing plant, mountain peaks are visible close to the downtown Seattle area. There are no mountain peaks adjacent to downtown Seattle. Mount Rainier is sometimes visible in the distance, but it is about a two to three hour drive from downtown Seattle. See more »
This is a forumulaic buddy movie, but it works. Madeleine Stowe is just wonderful. Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez also work very well. With good supporting acting all around, this movie works, when normally I would be rolling my eyes.
Good acting and some very good one-liner writing make what could have been a bad movie (like "Another Stakeout") and enjoyable experience. I recommend it for some good-hearted fun.
