Movie Info

One by-product of two consecutive Oscar wins is that Tom Hanks no longer has to appear in such potboilers as Turner and Hooch. Hanks plays Turner, a meticulously groomed, excruciatingly well-organized detective working in a small California coastal town. When local "character" Amos Reed (John McIntire) is murdered by drug smugglers, the only witness is Reed's slobbery, smelly mutt, Hooch. You're way ahead of us, folks: Turner, who despises dogs in general and Hooch in particular, is compelled to

I laughed heartily with the film, but I almost went cross-eyed trying to consider what the hell this script actually contained before Disney, five screenwriters, and two directors tore it apart.

So-so little comedy that's better than you'd think.

A dumb idea that winds up being an entertaining buddy picture

...[the ending] feels out of place and out of synch with the rest of the movie.

The beginning of the end for Hanks as a comedian -- dig it for that, but don't be too kind.

Audience Reviews for Turner and Hooch

Another one cop and his dog story. Better than K-9 but not exactly the dogs bollocks!

"This is not your room."

I remember some of these caninecop movies from the 80's. This one was probably the best of the bunch. The film also features a young Tom Hanks, who wasn't at that time a big star. That would happen after some years...

The film starts as a typical 80's cop movie with a saxophone tune on the background when the lead character is being introduced. It's immediately obvious that Hanks' character is a good, not your typical cop who is something of a neat freak.

The first time Hooch, a super drooler mastiff, was introduced, I became instantly infatuated with the dog. It looked somewhat of a Predator on four legs. The slow motion sequence, with its snout going all over... Excellent.

The story is a typical cop movie that has its moments but most of the movie concentrates on the building relationship between Turner and Hooch. Tom Hanks shows his comedic talents but most of the scenes are robbed by the dog. The scene where he shows the house to the dog, the stakeout scene, the end scene. All of these scenes were perfect examples on how a good dog 'actor' can make an average movie worth a look. Some scenes, especially in the end may give tears of laughter and sadness to all who admire these cute furry pooches.

As an end statement, I must confess that I'm a dog owner. I just love these "man's best friend's". I've always had dogs and I can understand the reactions of Hanks character, that occurred throughout the movie. You simply can't find a more trust worthy animal.

Funny movie about a cop and his side kick dog called Hooch, whom he needs to help him identify a murderer.
