Trivia

This encountered some flak as it was released just 9 days after the Oklahoma bombing. The film's plot features a gang of militant white supremacists who intend to detonate a bomb in a public place. Not surprisingly, the film took only $300 on its opening night in Oklahoma and the distributors - Live Entertainment - were forced to release a statement disassociating its film from the real-life incident.

Over the top fun
21 May 2010 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Being a huge, lifelong dog fan, I wanted to see this movie when it originally came out, but unfortunately plans to see it were dashed. 15 years later I finally was able to get a hold of a copy while I was out shopping at Zellers, and I'm glad I did.

It was what I expected; over the top, with plenty of laughs, and better than I expected it would be. It very much reminded me of Turner and Hooch and K9. Even if you aren't a Chuck Norris fan, the brilliantly trained dog or dogs (often several dogs are used for several behaviours in shows man movies), is the star of the show and worth seeing it for Reno alone. It's not too often you see Briards being featured!
