    James Belushi stars as Thomas Dooley, an unorthodox narcotics cop who teams with an independently minded police dog in this hilarious action-comedy. Headstrong Dooley is one step away from nailing a prominent socialite in a $50 million cocaine bust. He's branded as too crazy to partner with, and no one will work with him except Jerry Lee, a superbly trained German shepherd police dog with the best nose in the drug-busting business. The unconventional pairing pleases neither partner, but after a series of shootouts, stakeouts, brawls and romantic misadventures, they develop a grudging respect for each other. It's a heartwarming, fast-footed adventure about an unlikely and unbeatable police team that will have you rooting for man's best friend.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 3 very funny and exciting films! June 27, 2004
    This is a fantastic bargain. There is one disc here, but you get all 3 K-9 films. The first 2 films on side one. The 3rd film of the trilogy on side 2.
    James Belushi is perfectly comfortable in his ad-lib role as the cop with the German Shepheard partner. The timing is right on and the action non-stop. Bravo!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Dog lovers must. September 7, 2005
    What a great buy!!! All 3 of the K-9 movies for the price of one. The first movie is the best, Jerry Lee really has an attitude in that one, but I loved them all. James Belushi is funny in all of the movies. This set is a must for every dog lover.

    5.0 out of 5 stars What do dogs REALLY mean to us? January 18, 2006
    I've watched this film at LEAST five times, yet one scene in this film NEVER fails to move me:James Belushi's Officer Dooley(carrying his gravely wounded police dog after a near fatal shoot-out)frantically runs into a nearby ER room and-through sheer guts and determination-gets immediate medical care for his dying police dog "Jerry Lee". The task is by no means an easy one, as he meets the nursing staff's firm refusal at every turn, culminating in a confrontation with an exasperated ER doc who assures him:"Don't get so excited, It's just a DOG!" to which Belushi(as Officer Dooley) declares(with STUNNING conviction):""He's NOT just a DOG! He's a COP! And he's not just ANY cop, he's my PARTNER! He's bleeding to death! Either you help him NOW or he's gonna DIE!" After the dazed medical staff wheel off Jerry Lee into surgery, you simply MUST LISTEN to Dooley's truly HEARTRENDING, straight from the gut reverie, spoken to HIMSELF more than his girlfriend Tracy(Mel Harris).

    It simply breaks my heart EVERY time I hear it, as it's almost the exact same thing I heard an officer say in an animal ER many years ago! I challenge ANYONE to listen to him and NOT be moved right to the core. I swear that one scene-even if there was nothing else to recommend the film for-makes this film SO compelling to watch. A brilliant, sincere and surprising highmark of the film,I think it's easily James Belushi's finest screen moment.

    This film unfortunately gets too many comparisons with "Turner & Hooch"(similar plots and both released the same year). What sets this film APART is that "K-9" asserts-albeit in a lighthearted manner befitting a screwball comedy-what MANY officers over the years have admitted:that your police dog does indeed become MORE than a mere tool to enhance your job performance.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent March 12, 2006
    After some problems the pack finally arrived to me. It is excellent, new and has three movies, the latest one on the back side of the DVD. I have seen the pack and the quality is very good, looks well, sounds great and all options work. I recommend to buy it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I have watched it 40 times May 14, 2004
    By SH_
    Grown man. Don't care about the plot or the humour, some of which is good. Seen all the series. THIS IS IT. If you like dogs you will go nuts for this movie.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dog upstands the Cop March 14, 2001
    I might be a bit biassed in writing this but my shepherd named Shepherd of Bourne is a carbon copy of Jerry Lee. The dogs personality definetly shines through with his own little grunts and whines mixed with body language as close to human without looking fake or acted out. The story line is well written with Jerry Lee a headstrong K-9 dog who is well trained, but has his own way of doing things. This goes with the Police officer's character as well. I saw this movie when I was young, loved it, and have continued to love it as I have grown up over the years. I recently purchassed the DVD of K-911 and loved it equally, but nothing compares with the original. It's just now that I am finding K-9 on DVD and is the only place that carries it. All other stores in my local area of Cape Cod do not carry this movie. 911 on the other hand is somewhat accessible. If you do choose to purchase this film I would recommend it for the age ranges of children from 8 and up. Some scenes involving some light violence and a suggested scene of the sexual nature of animals may bring up some questions to the parents.

    5.0 out of 5 stars k-9 rocks April 7, 2002
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    This is about a "Stupid" cop who teams up with a 100% clever but annoying dog. This movie's got everything you want in a movie - humor, fast paced... and best of all DOG! Jerry Lee the German Sheperd dog is a realistic German Sheperd. I've got a Sheperd of my own, he is equally annoying, clever, out smart me. Some times I wonder if the dog thinks I'm stupid. The video is recommended to mature children, there are some rather embarrising moments when Jerry Lee trying to swoon a "lady".
    Swear to god, you've got to watch K-9, because it is the best movie that ever made with a dog as a main charactor. IT IS A CRIME NOT TO WATCH IT!...

    double sided disc
    I've bought double-sided discs before (though from Universal or not, I don't know), and have never had problems with them. I actually find the idea inventive, and it saves space, material, and packaging. These benefits allow the price to be lower, too.
