Storyline

Scott Turner has 3 days left in the local police department before he moves to a bigger city to get some "real" cases, not just misdemeanors. Then Amos Reed is murdered, and Scott Turner sets himself on the case. The closest thing to a witness in the case is Amos Reed's dog, Hooch, which Scott Turner has to take care of if it's going to avoid being "put to sleep". Written by Lars J. Aas <larsa@colargol.edb.tih.no>

Emily Carson: Well, it's a nice night, and I have to walk Camille. Do you want to take a walk with me?
Scott Turner: No. No. Well, you see, I'm starting to like you, and if we're going to walk I'm just going to like you even more, and then one day we might even end up in love and everything will go on fine for a while, but-but then one day *bang* you're gonna call me a selfish compulsive bastard! You're gonna pull your hair, you're gonna scream and you're gonna say you never want to see me again because I drive you crazy,...

Tom Hanks was destined for this role
20 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

"Congratulations you broke the case!".

About 60 minutes into the movie the Hooch drops the goods.

A few seconds later, the bad guy is in his sights.

Now call me cynical but isn't that just the way life is sometimes?

First out you have to eat a few dog biscuits, then if your in the right place at the right time... Really a great family movie!

Bachelor Party is one of the greats for younger guy's but for the family.

Turner and Hooch has to be one of the most entertaining and fun ways to spend an evening with younger people.
