Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines star in “Running Scared” from 1986. Joining them are Jimmy Smits, Steven Bauer, Dan Hedeya, and Joe Pantoliano.
Danny and Ray (Crystal and Hines) are two Chicago cops who are sent on a vacation when they are nearly killed during a case.
The two go to Florida and decide to quit the force and open a bar. Since Danny has been left money by his aunt, he is able to buy a rundown building they can refurbish.
When they return to Chicago, the drug dealer that almost killed them, Julio (Smits) is working on a big drug deal. They decide to close that case before leaving the force. They find that, with an eye toward retirement, it’s not as easy as they thought.
Comedians, for some reason, don’t have a long shelf life in terms of film stardom – witness Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, Robin Williams – after a time, even if they stay in movies, their roles become less.
Billy Crystal is another example. Marvelously funny, there’s no doubt that some of his improvisational skills were utilized in “Running Scared,” and he and the late Hines make a great pair. Though this isn’t a great movie, it’s definitely fun, filled with humorous repartee and one hilarious car chase. At one point, the two are robbed and beg to keep their wallets, especially their badges, which they show to the perps.
Many funny moments and some great music, including the wonderful “Sweet Freedom” sung by Michael McDonald. The actors also appear in a video of the song, which can be seen on youtube.
