ANOTHER STAKEOUT (1993) ** ½

Returning stars Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez are joined by the annoying Rosie O’Donnell in this too little too late sequel to the 1987 sleeper hit, Stakeout.  The trio pass themselves off as a family on vacation, while spying on a couple (Dennis Farina and Welcome Back Kotter’s Marcia Strassman) suspected of hiding a Mob informant (Cathy Moriarty) in their mountain summer home.  There’s a very funny dinner party scene and original director John Badham’s style is evident but the film never recovers from the horrible miscasting of O’Donnell.  Dreyfuss’ and Estevez’s chemistry almost saves it.  Madeline Stowe also returns from the first movie, in a diminished role and appears uncredited.
