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

A line from this film where Turner yells at Hooch to not eat the car was used in animation test footage for Toy Story (1995). When Tom Hanks saw the test footage, it convinced him to take on the role of Sheriff Woody. See more »

[Hooch won't stop barking]
Alright, what am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to stand out on the porch all night long?
Give him a Valium, Turner! Take one yourself!
Hey, shut up! I'm a policeman! Gu - Want your car towed?
[Hooch goes inside the house, knocking the door shut. It's locked]
OH NO! AAH! Ah, you stupid dog! AH, YA STUPID DOG!

A scene in the USA Network version, shows Scott finding drool in one of his shoes after he gives Hooch the bath. This version also deletes the scene where Mrs. Remington gives Scott the muffins. See more »
TURNER AND HOOCH teams Tom Hanks with an unlikely murder witness: a slobbering junkyard dog named Hooch. This is an okay film for another one of Hanks's underachievers, and is actually an entertaining one to watch. It's not the dog that K-9 was. The story here is much better, the chemistry is much stronger and the movie doesn't try as hard. Certainly Hanks's most underrated film, and highly recommended for people with pets in their home.
