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

Scenes with Turner walking Hooch took a lot of takes as 'Beasley The Dog' was so strong, Tom Hanks frequently dropped the leash. See more »
When Turner is playing with Hooch in his living room, Hooch is chasing Turner and barking at him. However, the audio of the barking is way out of sync with any movements of Hooch's mouth. See more »

Tom Hanks stars in this comedy about an obssesively neat small town detective who teams up with the only witness to a friend's murder - the victim's slobber-happy dog. This is a cute film with many gags between Hanks and the dog. The entire sequence trying to get Hooch to take a bath is quite funny. The film moves at a quick pace and is better written than a similar film such as K-9, with Jim Belushi. Craig T. Nelson co-stars.
