The extravagant cop Michael Dooley needs some help to fight a drug dealer who has tried to kill him. A "friend" gives him a dog named Jerry Lee, who has been trained to smell drugs. With his help, Dooley sets out to put his enemy behind the bars, but Jerry Lee has a personality of his own and works only when he wants to.

Superior to the Chuck Norris/Dog Attempt, And One Of Belushi's Finest.
22 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is NOT the best cop/dog movie, but it IS superior to the Chuck Norris/pooch flick. Personally, I found Turner and Hooch to be superior to this work, but it is still enjoyable, and comes in second to my favorite.

HOwever, this is witty, and funny enough to be endearing, without resorting to Jim Belushi's usual tactics, although he does employ the beginning of those posturing and chest-beating tactics here. But they are not so dominant that the movie suffers. In fact, they play well in this situation, though it IS sad to watch a grown man who is romantically jealous of a dog.

This fails any Oscar possibilities, but I do not honestly believe that would surprise those involved with this work. The bottom line: This is a fun movie. It fails to warm the heart as well as Turner and Hooch, but does not make you feel sorry for the dog like some other movies have, along this venue. It is entertaining and fun, and rates a 6.6/10 from...
