Overview
"Dynamite screen team" ("CBS Morning News") Gregory Hines ('The Cotton Club', 'White Nights') and Billy Crystal ('City Slickers') star in the motion picture that asks the question, "How come the bad guys always drive the good cars?" The answer has them 'Running Scared' in this lightning-paced comic thriller.

Ray and Danny are the wild men of the Windy City's police force. The pair's unorthodox methods get results in a tough town - until they come up against Julio Gonzales (Jimmy Smits, "NYPD Blue"), a smooth-talking drug dealer who is bucking to become Chicago's first Spanish Godfather. Trying to nail Gonzales, they blow a delicate undercover operation and are sent on a forced vacation to Key West - where they discover the good life of warm weather and warmer women. The new locale makes them decide to retire... but not before putting Gonzales behind bars first!
