Critic Reviews of "Running Scared (1986)"Chicago TribuneMay 27, 2014
"Running Scared" tries to be a light comedy in a violent, comic-book world. That's a difficult juggling act, and director Peter Hyams doesn't pull it off.Chicago ReaderMay 27, 2014
A functional 1986 actioner about two wisecracking Chicago cops (Gregory Hines and Billy Crystal) and their vendetta against a Latino crime lord (Jimmy Smits).VarietyMay 27, 2014
No more original or eventful than an average police TV show, so it must sink or swim on the moment-by-moment cleverness of the dialog and the behavioral talents of Hines and Crystal. Fortunately, these elements prove formidable.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Crystal and Hines do flavour the film with genuine warmth, and despite some cheap gags, work well together to produce some truly funny moments.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Another, thoroughly depressing demonstration of the extent to which television now dictates the style and the manners of so many of the movies we see in theaters.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
This genre is so overpopulated that it hardly seems like we need one more example, and yet "Running Scared" transcends its dreary roots and turns out to be a lot of fun.TV GuideMay 27, 2014
Wisecracking their way through tough situations and bickering like an old married couple, Hines and Crystal succeed in creating a new buddy team that ranks with the likes of Robert Redford and Paul Newman.Arizona Daily StarFebruary 23, 2006
Has all the logic and transitional ease of a Pokémon-style card game played by 5-year-olds who don't understand the rules, so they make up their own as they go.Fantastica DailyOctober 20, 2005
A breezily entertaining buddy-cop movie with too much cutesy shtick for its own good. Gregory Hines is OK, but Billy Crystal is never believable as a Chicago cop.Film4May 24, 2003
If you're sure there's nothing else to do.Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)February 18, 2003

Relentlessly competent in a TBS Saturday afternoon kind of way.
