Let's Make 'Another Stakeout' a Cult Classic for No Particular Reason


In a move reminiscent of Conan O'Brien's surprisingly successful campaign for the theatrical re-release of Dirty Dancing, some fellows at Funny or Die have a new cinematic cause that I think we can all get behind: somehow turn the Richard Dreyfus/Emelio Estevez/Rosie O'Donnell sequel comedy Another Stakeout into a cult classic.

Notable comedy writer/director Adam McKay outlines the plan:

Come join us and help us turn this movie into a giant cult hit for absolutely no good reason. Register and vote 10/10 for the movie. Get into heated trivia arguments about the movie. Quote lines, question other Stakeout heads' commitment to the movie. Let's forward this e-mail and flood the site to the point where there are Another Stakeout festivals and conventions and midnight showings with people in costume saying lines along with the movie ala Rocky Horror Pic Show. And remember, we are Another Stakeout fans. Not Stakeout fans. The first one was pretty good but like the Godfather 2 (or is the Godfather 2 like Another Stakeout?) director John Badham got it right the second time around. AS 2 forever!!

Show your support for the cause and enjoy AS's classic "dog chased by Rosie O'Donnell chases a cat up a tree" scene, under the cut.
