Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez were having a movie trivia contest on the set one day. Estevez asked Dreyfuss to identify the movie that the line "This is no boating accident" was from. Dreyfuss didn't recognize the quote, despite the fact that he was the actor who said it in Jaws (1975). Deciding that this was too good to pass up, this incident was re-enacted for the film.

What the hell were you doin'?
What do you mean, what was I doin'? I was putting in a bug, for crying out loud.
Oh, really? Is that what that was? Huh? Well I don't call goin' through that woman's drawers *puttin' in a goddam bug*.
Oh, calm down. Don't blow a bowel, okay? For crying out loud. I thought I saw something in her bureau that would tell us whether or not she talked to Montgomery.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, you really should. It's a film that has basically every element a film should have. Comedy, romance and action. It's neither a guy or chick flick, but rather suitable for everyone. The parts that have action, are not cheesy at all, and are actually pretty good. The scenes that are funny, are really well-written and are very humorous. And, finally the love scenes are modest, but still adult enough.
Richard Dryefus and Emilio Esteves, are partners for the Seattle P.D. When the F.B.I puts them on a special assignment, staking out the home of the ex-girlfriend to an escaped convict, they become involved more in her, then they do in the actual case. Adin Quinn stars as the escaped convict, and does an excellent job making you hate him. Richard Dreyfus is hilarious and I suspect, that's why they made a sequel to this film.
I recommend this film to anyone over thirteen, and highly recommend it to adults. It's funny and well presented on screen.
