Just watched Stakeout again and i love it!

Directed by John Badham and written by Kim Kouf (Class, Secret Admirer, Up The Creek, The Hidden etc.)

This is one of the best buddy cop flicks.
So many great jokes and the chemistry between Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez is fantastic.
Madeleine Stowe is good as the female lead
and the supporting cast is amazing.

The merry mustache men

Arthur B. Rubinstein composed a great, mostly synth, score
and you can hear some good tunes too.
Mr. Mister, Gloria Estefan and The Miami Sound Machine, The Pointer Sisters, Steve Winwood etc.

Mr MISTER - is it love

Steve Winwood - Higher Love

Gloria Estefan - Rhythm is Gonna Get You

Highly entertaining movie!
Next: Another Stakeout.

yeah..i've seen this one alot. Dryfuss is very funny in this movie. Unfortunetly, Dryfuss's great comedic performance is the ONLY highlight of this movie. Other than that it's just another shoot 'em up action flick. But I would recommend this one just based off Dryfuss's performance alone. Aidan Quinn does play a pretty good bad guy in this too.

Logan 5, I have had a look on YouTube for you and the answer is yes, "Stakeout" does in fact end with Mr. Mister performing Is It Love.
