Cops and Robbersons

Leathery veteran cop Jake Stone (Jack Palance) and his partner move in with the Robbersons to keep an eye on their neighbor, a vicious criminal. This Stakeout meets National Lampoonā€™s Vacation was a serious attempt at trying to revive Chevy Chaseā€™s career after the spectacular failure of his talk show. Director Michael Ritchie previously made Fletch (1985), but this movie is disappointing, suffering from a script void of funny jokes. The actors are better, but they can only do so much.Ā 

1994-U.S. 93 min. Color. Directed byĀ Michael Ritchie. Cast: Chevy Chase (Norman Robberson), Jack Palance (Jake Stone), Dianne Wiest (Helen Robberson), Robert Davi, David Barry Gray, Jason James Richter.Ā 

Quote: “Do you know what smoking does to you? It stunts your growth, it yellows your teeth and blackens your lungs. Is that what you want? To be a yellow toothed midget with lung cancer?” (Chase to his son)
