Running Scared dir. Peter Hyams (1986) An underrated 1980s film that grows better with each rescreening. Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal form one of the all-time great partnerships as two bantering police officers looking to set the record straight before early retirement. SF fans will recognise Joe Pantoliano.

The status quo turns to sweet crumble when their rival’s scheming brings a three-year-old human (presumed deadly) into their world.
