Tango & Cash

Tango & Cash
-Ray Tango and Gabriel Cash are rival LAPD narcotics officers who both think they're the best officer. Cash is rough and tumble, preferring jeans and gymshoes as his attire, while Tango is "Armani with a badge", according to Cash. When the both of them are framed for a crime they didn't commit, they must work together and solve the crime

-Sylvester Stallone: Lt. Ray Tango
-Kurt Russell: Lt. Gabriel Cash
-Teri Hatcher: Katherine 'Kiki' Tango
-Jack Palance: Yves Perret
-Brion James: Requin
-James Hong: Quan
-Marc Alaimo: Lopez
-Philip Tan: Chinese gunman
-Michael J. Pollard: Owen
-Edward Bunker: Capt. Holmes

Did You Know?
-In the scene where Tango and Cash first arrive at the prison, the outside of the prison they go to is the old Cincinnati Workhouse in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's said that during filming, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell rode around on rented motorcycles
-Tango never refers to Cash by his first name, which is Gabriel or Gabe. He refers to him as only Cash
-This was the last film to be released in the 1980s
-When Tango and Cash escape from the prison, Cash asks Tango if he stopped for coffee and a Danish. Tango replies "I hate Danish". This is a reference to Sylvester Stallone's recent divorce from Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen
-The glasses worn by Sylvester Stallone in the early parts of the movie are not a prop but his own glasses. In his films, he usually wears contact lenses. Looking closely at the glasses, you can see that he's near-sighted in one of the lenses but not the other
-When actor Brion James was brought in to play Requin, he decided to give his character a Cockney accent and Sylvester Stallone gave his character a bigger role

Cop: He thinks he's Rambo
Ray Tango: Rambo? Rambo's a pussy

[Looking at Ray Tango in a newspaper]
Gabriel Cash: Well, if it isn't Armani with a badge?
[walking to the showers naked]
Gabriel Cash: Nice to see your underwear problem is solved
Ray Tango: I noticed. And Cash? You can stop holding your stomach

[Tango grabs a submachine gun and gives Cash a pistol]
Ray Tango: Here
Gabriel Cash: Aw, c'mon. How come yours is bigger than mine?
Ray Tango: Genetics, peewee

[After bending down in shower to pick up soap]
Ray Tango: What are you doing? What are you doing?
Gabriel Cash: Relax. Soap. And don't flatter yourself... Peewee
