Actors Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez sported mustaches in the original Stakeout (1987) but predominantly do not have them in this sequel. At the start of the film.

This belated sequel to the Box-office hit 'Stakeout' 6 years earlier is not bad - it's lifted by the performances of returning stars Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez (What happened to him?) But this time round the plot is lame to the extreme and the jokes fall flat time and time again making this movie about as funny as Scary Movie 2, and the casting of Rosie O'Donnell was a big mistake.
Stakeout (1987) U.S BOX OFFICE $65,000,000
This movie just scraped over the $20,000,000 mark and you can see why.
If there's nothing else on TV - I do recommend a watch but don't be surprised if you looking at the OFF switch after the first 30 Minutes
