Hot Pursuit is a 1987 Adventure/Action-Comedy film starring John Cusack, Robert Loggia, Jerry Stiller, Ben Stiller (in his first acting role) and Keith David.


A student named Dan Bartlett (John Cusack) is planning to go on a vacation in the Caribbean with his rich girlfriend's family, when there is a sudden change of plans.


Anthony Michael Hall was considered for the lead before the filmmakers decided to go with John Cusack.[1]


The scenes at Dan's school ("Burnham preparatory school for boys") were filmed at St. Michaels University School in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. A "Victoria Taxi" logo is visible on the cab that Dan takes to the airport.


The movie was rated PG-13 by the MPAA.
