Though i am more enjoying the normal Turner & Hooch life story with Emily rather than searching for a murderer mission in the half of a movie, it's not terrible or bad, it just pretty boring, but not until the whole last mission scene that works so well, besides that, all the performance was amazing including Hooch, overall Turner & Hooch is still a very good movie.
Tom Hanks was, at the beginning of his career, an actor very focused on light and quickly forgettable comedies. This would only be one more if it did not have the support of a furry friend who shows to be absolutely irresistible: the dog that plays Hooch. The way Hanks irritates himself about the dog is very funny, as is the way the dog turns the life of Scott Turner (Hanks' character) into a nightmare. Turner is an organized cop, very methodical and neat, and Hooch totally destroys his furniture, his things and even his car. All this happens in the middle of a larger plot in which the death of the dog's previous owner is investigated, a murder whose only witness is precisely the animal. The ending is quite unexpected and deeply moving. Hanks has been well throughout the film but the dog is clearly the star here. It's not a fabulous movie or a work of art, but it's a great movie to watch with the whole family, it's sure to make everyone laugh.
As a bunch, the film makers have created the sort of mystery story that might well puzzle a 12-year-old who had never read a mystery story before and wasn't paying attention anyway, and the sort of love story that 12-year-olds might throw away to read the mystery story, along with the sort of dog story many dogs would actually enjoy--if the pages were edible...Luckily the team of Hanks and Beasley are around to save the show, tell a few snappy stories, dance a few licks, chase a few crooks, make you laugh, make you cry. Who needs writers?
Man bites dog in Turner & Hooch, the new Tom Hanks vehicle, and it's a tender moment. But there's precious little else going on in this tired little action comedy, which is so bereft of ideas that it winds up borrowing from Lady and the Tramp, among other familiar sources. [28 July 1989, p.G5]
Turner and Hooch is not the best comedy around but it's entertaining and for the most part most of it fits well with the next scene like a jigsaw puzzle. It's very funny in some places as the dog destroys Tom Hanks's vinyl records and rips stuff from out of the fridge and messes his house up while Tom Hanks goes shopping. The action scenes were okay but nothing too great so this for me is an average film.
