Scott Turner has 3 days left in the local police department before he moves to a bigger city to get some "real" cases, not just misdemeanors. Then Amos Reed is murdered, and Scott Turner sets himself on the case. The closest thing to a witness in the case is Amos Reed's dog, Hooch, which Scott Turner has to take care of if it's going to avoid being "put to sleep".Written by

When Turner leaves Hooch in the car outside the police station and Hootch begins to "eat" the head rest, the foam insert is a white, cylindrical shaped piece of padding. When Turner returns to the car, you can see that the headrest has changed to a standard, yellowish foam commonly used in that make and model automobile. See more »
Let him go, Hooch! I'm sorry, Scott. I don't have the hand-strength I used to. You're OK, aren't you?
Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I was looking forward to a nice quiet cup of coffee, BUT NOW I'M AWAKE!

The credits roll over various clips depicting the friendship between the title characters. See more »
A scene in the USA Network version, shows Scott finding drool in one of his shoes after he gives Hooch the bath. This version also deletes the scene where Mrs. Remington gives Scott the muffins. See more »
A Very Underrated Cop-Doggy Comedy...Perhaps the Best of the Genre...
Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) is a clean-cut cop. He keeps his house constantly clean and very organized. But after chaos ensues he ends up with the only witness of a crime scene: a very messy, dirty, hairy, slob of a beast - a dog. Actually, a "dawg" to be correct. That's the breed, supposedly...
Tom Hanks is very convincing and enjoyable in his role as a neat-freak cop, and the dog, surprisingly (I never thought I'd write this) is a great actor.
There are predictable and very typical eighties moments in "Turner and Hootch," but overall I thought the movie was a very enjoyable cop-doggy comedy, and it has a very nice ending to it ("This is not yours!"
When compared to other cop-dog movies like "K-9," it's a wonder that Turner and Hootch isn't on the top 250!
