Mike Dooley has been teamed up with Jerry Lee, a German Shepherd dog, for nearly ten years, but Jerry Lee isn't as young as he once was, and Dooley's superiors suggest that maybe it's time that Jerry Lee was retired from the force. But there is a stalker who wants Dooley dead. The stalker, disgruntled crime novelist Devon Lane, became obsessed with Dooley's wife after she rejected his book, and he blames Dooley for her death. When Jerry Lee can't keep up with chasing Devon during a shootout, Captain Byers teams Dooley and Jerry Lee with a younger K9 team -- aggressive female detective Welles and her dog Zeus, a young, strong Doberman Pincher. After Dooley futilely investigates a convict he once busted, the dogs get him back on track by sniffing out Devon's storage locker. The room reveals Devon's identity to Dooley, and one of Devon's manuscripts reveals that he intends to make Dooley suffer for his words. When Devon makes a bold move by invading the precinct and taking Welles hostage... Written by Todd Baldridge

Boy, Universal sure has a lot of cash to throw away.
1 September 1999 | by Steveo-18See all my reviews

Usually, a sequel is the result of a film that was highly entertaining, leaving us wanting more. SILENCE of the LAMBS would be a good example, as are the STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES sequels. So, why K-9? Did the first one work us up enough to warrant a sequel? Was the chemistry between Belushi and Jerry Lee the stuff that dreams are made of? Please!!!!!

This film hashes up some plot about a writer stalking Belushi because Belushi's ex-wife (now dead) had some interest in his writing. The stalker blames Belushi for the death. A game of cat and mouse ensues. Throw in a female cop with her own dog, Dutch, and let the fun begin. Unfortunately, there was no fun to be had.

The film tries to be cute and funny, though I found it to be awful-funny. You know, so awful that it was pretty funny someone would greenlight this picture into production. The film depends on Belushi to carry the humor, though I found him irritating in a Gilbert Gottfried type of way. If you're under ten years old, you'll probably dig Belushi's wacky, over-the-top comedic performance. And if you like this film, might I recommend another comedic epic disaster masterpiece, KRIPPENDORF'S TRIBE. On the Steveo Cheese Scale from Yanni to Carrot Top, Carrot Top being best, this film ranks a solid Corey Feldman!!!!
