With Hooch the only witness to a murder, small-town policeman Turner (Tom Hanks) begrudgingly befriends him to help sniff out the culprit. Just one problem – Hooch is a dog. Solving the crime soon becomes a mere sideshow to the main thrust of this lightweight caper - the slapstick chaos of a messy, mountainous mutt pairing up with a neat-freak cop. In between drooling jowl-shakes, we enjoy a late night stake out and an almighty wrestle to wash Hooch. Despite having almost only a dog to bounce off, Hanks displays plenty of the charm that had earned him an Oscar nomination for Big a year earlier. This novel twist on the cop buddy thriller is made unavoidably entertaining thanks to Hanks.

    WARNING SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Turner and Hooch was a good mix of a romance and detective story.
    It is about a murder which happened at the start of the film which then led on to the main character finding the dog, Hooch. Hooch was the only witness to the murder and at the start of the movie. Turner hated the dog but as the story progressed he became attached to it and at the end when the dog died, he was in tears and you could tell he became very emotionally attached to the dog.

    An improvement could be that you could become more emotionally attached to the dog so when it dies at the end, you become more upset.

    Turner is a detective which loves clean things and when Hooch came in to his life everything went from messy to clean. The owner of Hooch was killed so Turner has to take care of him. Turner started to become more relaxed after Hooch become his pet and he met a girlfriend. They found a drug business and Turner realized the head of the police department is also the head of the business. After finding out in the huge factory. They tried to escape and turn him in. But Turner was knocked out and in a attempt to escape with Hooch. After being knocked out the head of the police tried to shoot him but Hooch jumped in and got shot for him giving Turner enough time to wake up and arrest the policeman. The movie moves on into the future with little baby dogs and little Hooch. Happy ever after :D

    This is a very good film I thought the actors did a very good job especially tom hanks. At times it is sad but it is very funny. It is the best film I have seen in film club for a while. Despite this I think that without Tom Hanks this film would not be half as good. A very good film.
