Storyline

Mike Dooley has been teamed up with Jerry Lee, a German Shepherd dog, for nearly ten years, but Jerry Lee isn't as young as he once was, and Dooley's superiors suggest that maybe it's time that Jerry Lee was retired from the force. But there is a stalker who wants Dooley dead. The stalker, disgruntled crime novelist Devon Lane, became obsessed with Dooley's wife after she rejected his book, and he blames Dooley for her death. When Jerry Lee can't keep up with chasing Devon during a shootout, Captain Byers teams Dooley and Jerry Lee with a younger K9 team -- aggressive female detective Welles and her dog Zeus, a young, strong Doberman Pincher. After Dooley futilely investigates a convict he once busted, the dogs get him back on track by sniffing out Devon's storage locker. The room reveals Devon's identity to Dooley, and one of Devon's manuscripts reveals that he intends to make Dooley suffer for his words. When Devon makes a bold move by invading the precinct and taking Welles hostage... Written by Todd Baldridge

Dumb, cheap, careless, lazy but slightly enjoyable if you're in a really, really, really, REALLY undemanding mood
7 October 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dooley and Jerry Lee are still on the force when they have a rough two weeks of almost being killed – ending in a huge gunfight where they fail to catch the suspect because they are out of shape. They are given new partners in Welles and her über-hound Zeus. Despite the misunderstandings and Jerry Lee's crisis of confidence they start to hunt down the man who burns with anger against Dooley.

I wanted to hate this, I must admit. I thought this was going to be rubbish and that I wouldn't get though 5 minutes. I was right, in that it has plenty of flaws, but it was still diverting enough to be slightly enjoyable. The plot is Stupid (note the capital S!), some nonsense about a killer after Dooley because of a bad book review. The way they track him down is dumb and if you want to follow the movie I suggest you give logic and reason the night off. The action scenes are rubbish, be it a rocket launcher attack or a massive shootout where no-one (NO-ONE) gets hit at all. I know it's a kids movie but this is too much.

The comedy is basic but at least it isn't just a retread of all the dog versus man jokes. It's still a love/hate buddy cop thing thought and it gets pretty tiresome after a while. Belushi tries hard but he's no Bill Murray. He simply can't carry the movie and his clowning is a bit much. Tucci is too straight laced and her "Dutch" is a joke. The dogs are OK but really lack character and I could only ever see them as well trained animals and not in terms of personalities or characters.

The film sets out it's production values from the first 5 minutes onwards. At the start we see Dooley get out of the shower. He is naked from the waist up but in the mirror behind him it is clear that he is wearing underwear! How did they miss this mistake!!!! It is repeated all the way though with tonnes of continuity mistakes – I never notice goofs in movies but here they are everywhere and really obvious. It's not a big problem but it does show how cheap this film is and how little care was put into it.

Overall this made me laugh a few times but mostly AT the film and not WITH it. Belushi tries hard but the material is poor and the production values are so low that it's obvious that no-one wanted to make a good film – but just make a cheap film that would make a small profit on video and TV. Like I said, if you're in a silly mood, drunk, high or just a really undemanding (or dumb) person then you'll love this. If you're normal then you may just be able to stand it for 90 minutes but will struggle to use the word `enjoyed' when you tell your friends about it.
