Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines are a pair of Chicago detectives Running Scared from drug kingpin Jimmy Smitts in a 1986 caper that helped define buddy cop flicks of the era. Can the wisecracking partners dodge bullets for their last 30 days on the job and finally enjoy the “Sweet Freedom” of retirement promised by Michael McDonald’s hit single? And will anything in the Florida Keys be as fun for the Boys in Blue as ridiculing punk Joe Pantoliano’s red hairdo?  It’s mandatory you take this Gold Level vacation with Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob today!
