During the movie Dooley is playing a game when he is on stakeout. In the background you can see the Mustang emblem on the steering wheel. Later in the stolen police car when he is playing a game while tailing Lyman, the Mustang emblem is in the background again. See more »
[Jerry Lee has just single handedly taken out an entire bar of thugs who where roughing up Dooley]
I want you to know that I'm the officer in charge here, Michael Dooley not Jerry Lee.

Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more »
The UK theatrical version was cut by 21 secs to secure a "12" rating and removed descriptions of a "Colombian Necktie". The 15 rated video version was uncut and the 12 rated DVD is also intact. See more »
I do agree the story is predictable, and the ending didn't quite excite or move me. However, it does work surprisingly well as a man-and-dog buddy movie. The film is at least nice to watch, the soundtrack is decent, the direction is good and the script does have a few laughs that makes the experience enjoyable. And the acting is very spirited- Jerry-Lee is the star of the show, very well trained and cute, while James Belushi is always watchable and Mel Harris is appealing and sexy.
Overall, this is a surprisingly good buddy movie with enough humorous moments and spirited performances to make it worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
