Synopsis


Turner and Hooch
One by-product of two consecutive Oscar wins is that Tom Hanks no longer has to appear in such potboilers as Turner and Hooch. Hanks plays Turner, a meticulously groomed, excruciatingly well-organized detective working in a small California coastal town. When local "character" Amos Reed (John McIntire) is murdered by drug smugglers, the only witness is Reed's slobbery, smelly mutt, Hooch. You're way ahead of us, folks: Turner, who despises dogs in general and Hooch in particular, is compelled to put the cantankerous dog up as his house guest. Also easily predictable is the fact that Turner and Hooch will, by the next-to-last reel, become boon companions. To its credit, the film has an abundance of laughs and thrills...but, gee, that ending! Neither terrific nor terrible, Turner and Hooch is a pleasant time-filler; we do wish, however, that more time had been spent on the budding romance between Turner and veterinarian Emily Carson (Mare Winningham). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    This is an old movie I had not seen for a long time. I really enjoyed watching it again. Fun to see Tom Hanks so young and Mare Winningham was good in her part, as a vet and romantic interest. Of course the real star of the movie is the dog who plays 'Hooch'. Lots of laughs and some pathos. A movie well worth re-visiting

    This movie is a great classic early Tom Hanks movie from early 90's. Comedy mixed with dramatic murder mystery. The dog steals many scenes and if you are a dog lover you'll enjoy the paring of this "odd couple".

    While not one of Tom Hanks' huge hits, this is a funny and entertaining movie. How can you not love a huge, slobbering dog? Good chemistry between Hanks and Mare Winningham, too.

    Tom Hanks again proves to be a great actor, this time in a story about a dog that runs down the killer of his master while drooling on everything!

    By far one of Tom Hank’s best movies! I hadn’t seen it in years when I found it on sale on Black Friday and had forgotten just how good it is!
