[Dooley meets Jerry Lee]
There he is, the best nose on the force. He could stick that snout in the wind right now and lead you to a stash in the middle of Tijuana.
Listen, I gotta be up front with you. I got a real bad feeling about this dog.
Hey, tough shit. That's all I got. Not I want you to take care.
Don't worry about the dog.
It's not the dog I'm worried about.

Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more »
As a young child, K-9 was one of my favourite films, and although my tastes have matured with time, this is still a very funny film, with one of the most underrated actors ever, James Belushi. Playing the superb Bill Murray deadpan style, but usually as a cop, rather than Murray's humorous loser roles, Belushi is a likeable dodgy cop. The end scene in the hospital is the best man and dog conversation ever, although Jerry Lee jumping in the poodle's car runs it pretty close.
My rating : 9 out of 10
