Episode 104: Running Scared (1986)

runningscaredIt's off to the chilly Lake Michigan shore community of Chicago for this episode as the trio review one of their favorite buddy cop films of all times, 1986's "Running Scared!" Directed by Peter Hyams, and starring Gregory Hines, Billy Crystal, Jimmy Smits, Darlanne Fluegel, Joe Pantoliano, Dan Heydaya, Jon Gries and Tracy Reed, this is a mostly-forgotten gem in the "buddy cop" genre! While a bit more light-hearted than a lot of others of this type, the movie does an excellent job of following most of the rules of the genre without succumbing to tripping over the tropes and showing a lot of over-used elements. Although it's clearly an 80s film (watch for the "carphone"), otherwise, it's still representative of the best this type of story can become!
