Danny and Ray are two street wise cops in Chicago. When they are almost killed on a case, they are forced to take a vacation by their captain. Key West offers a substantial change over frozen Chicago. They decide to quit and open a bar in Key West. Upon returning, they find that Julio, the drug dealer who nearly killed them has made bail and is trying to complete a giant drug deal. They decide to complete their case against Julio before quitting, but then begin being careful. Their effectiveness drops as they find they can't operate the way they did before if they don't have the edge of a long time commitment.Written by

The docked ship used in the movie at the 29min mark is the Columbia Yatch Club, Chicago. The ship is non working and permanently dock in the Chicago harbor. See more »
When Hughes reports that their taxi, chasing Julio's limo, is heading south on I-190, you can see them pass the exit for the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. However, they exit at River Road (north), and you see the Hyatt again on the off-ramp. Right afterwards, once you see them exit onto River Road, the scene suddenly shifts to Oakton Street and Niles Center Road in Skokie. The two locations are 9 miles apart and would require driving through the towns of Des Plaines, Park Ridge, Niles, and Morton Grove first. See more »
Great action+excellent chemistry: Outstanding action comedy
For a time between the humorous Beverly Hills Cop to the more serious Lethal Weapon, Running Scared is a great action comedy with a very unlikely paring of Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal. The soundtrack is excellent as well. Definitely consider a sequel to this one.
