Why is James Belushi on this site and in the two previous K9 movies called Mike Dooley, yet in the credits and in the movie itself of K9 P-I he is called Thomas Dooley?

Enough funny, but totally unnecessary, 7 March 2003

K9(1989) directed by Rod Daniel was a good movie, where a hard Miami cop coupled with a strange dog. The movie was supported from an exciting screenplay and the mix between action and comedy stay high all the time thanks to a great James Belushi in the lead role. After 14 years there are two sequel for the original movie: K9:11(1999) and this K9:P.I.(2002). Both of them useless, because every good points of the movie is lost, even the argument between the cop and his dog, that in the first movie were very hilarious and funny , are off and without energy. The story is totally absent, all of the movie based to the gags between the cop and the dog , that its are funny but too little for do the entirely movie on this. Because in this years the story of the dog cop have been exploit in every of his aspect and now is relegated for SitCom, TV series or actors beginners, not for a professional as James Belushi . In this new adventure the cop Dooley and his dog partner is ready to the retire, but they are involved in a case of steal a microchips, and till to the guilty going to discover the retired is frozen. The plot is totally undeveloped and it stay only a idea for all the movie, Belushi is off, but he heave not materials to work, and he seems only a caricature to the fascinating cop on first `K9'.Belushi is a great actor, his character in movies as `The Principal', `Dimenticare Palermo' or in comedy as `Taking care a business' and the nostalgic `Mr Destiny' were the work of a professional and good actor, but it's a real sin that you see spoiling this talent in this sequel for the video. Ultimately Belushi is relegated to the TV and video production, but I think that he heave the quality for back on the cinema, I hope that some good director succeeded to emphasize. Now Belushi is on the set to the movie `Easy Six', a independent production directed by Chris Iovenko where he play the role of Elvis Presley. It seem a good return, I good hope.
