Editorial Reviews

Academy Award(R)-winner Tom Hanks (Best Actor, 1995, FORREST GUMP) stars as Scott Turner, a compulsively neat detective whose tidy world goes to the dogs when he's forced to team up with the only witness to a crime -- a drooling slob of a junkyard dog named Hooch. Not exactly man's best friend, Hooch turns Turner's life upside down, wrecking Turner's home, career, and budding romance! It's a hilarious, nonstop test of wills between this mismatched duo, leading to the most unlikely friendship you've ever seen! TURNER & HOOCH thrilled audiences nationwide with its offbeat blend of humor and suspense -- this fast-paced box office megahit is loads of fun!

Format:VHS Tape
Thoroughly charming - one of those rare films that is unabashedly what it means to be: a simple movie about a man learning to love something besides himself. In this case, it happens to be a dog (a very unusual beloved beast). There are little gems of performances, John McIntire as Amos, who brings the old saw about "people look like their dogs" to life, and Mare Winningham who really shows how powerful a performance understatement can make. And of course Tom Hanks, who is as always the most charming human being in the world. He also brings this very flawed person to admirable life. Then Hooch, of course, whose real name is sadly lacking in the list of credits.
The screenplay itself is a marvel of simple, unassuming comedy. If we want to get "appreciatin'", then Hanks' urgently yelled, "I got a muffin for you, Hooch!" is a far more immediate and understandable cry of the everyman than "Reuben! Reuben!" And there can be no more perfect cry of human frustration than Hanks imploring Hooch (who has, after eating, sleeping, and going on his nightly "rounds", continued to howl all night), "What?! What?!"
Hooch's ending is very sad, especially if you have young ones in the house, but the sadness is redeemed by a hopeful ending. I love this movie. It never ceases to make me smile after the worst of days. And no film can have a higher commendation than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Dog Actor of All Time February 6, 2006
This is a great light and funny comedy that I think everybody can enjoy. It does have a bit of violence but it is not over the top with it. Hanks is his usual funny self and this is one of his early roles before he became the serious icon that he has become and rightly so. But the STAR of the movie is HOOCH the Dogue de Bourdeaux (or French Mastiff). This dog has the most charisma I have ever seen in a dog. The big red beautiful (in the eyes of the beholder)beast has everything it takes to steal the spotlight from Tom Hanks and everybody else in the movie. He is at the same time one of the ugliest and cutest animals ever on film. The dog has the chops, the look and the acting ability to make Turner and Hooch and all time favorite for both adults and kids (maybe not too young though cause of the crime plot) but watching Hanks play off the dog is hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Movie Dog January 21, 2007
What a great movie. Ever since this movie came out my daughter has wanted a mastif just like Hooch. Thank goodness she can satisfy herself with this dogs antics by watching the movie over and over again. Although this movie looks very eighties/early nineties it has timeless appeal. Definately worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars I miss these kind of movies from the 80's!!! March 20, 2006
This movie is a classic. There are many funny parts when hooch tears everything apart in tom hanks neat clean home. But sometimes i think i prefer k-9 not that k9 is better, both are great dog comedies, but the dog in k-9 with jim belushi lives at the end. To me, i find the ending to turner and hooch to be devastatingly sad, even though there was a brilliant attempt to make it less sad, and not completely ruined, the scene that was put in at the end when the puppy looked like hooch when we didnt know that camile and hooch mated till that point. But still, it's awful when it shows the dog being shot in the air, it's a little graphic, and to back that up, this film was on tv the other day on tnt, and they had to cut that part out, when it shows the bloody spot on his fur when he is shot. It's a bit much, there is enough violence in movies. I'm fine with people getting killed in films because it is fake, and the animals also getting killed is fake, but still too unbearable for me, and animal lovers. Not that the ending ruined the film, because i can still enjoy the film, and laugh at the parts that were meant to be funny as a distraction from the horrible ending. Also, the way that hooch died. Like k9's do, and any animal that loves his owner, they will risk their own life for you, it's a reminder to the world to treat their dogs/pets/any animal good and humane, because you wouldnt believe how loyal animals are. They would put their lives on the line to save you, just out of love for you, and they dont ask for much in return. What person do you know that you can honestly say that about?? End animal cruelty now, and raise your children right, to respect and be kind to animals who are more capable of extraordinary things than you would realize. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Hanks is great in this one. December 31, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I have a Dogue de Bordeaux like Hooch. Therefore, I am coming into this review with some bias. The movie starts with Hanks who has only 3 days to go before he is to start his new job with the highway patrol. His friend (Amos, Hooch's owner) is murdered and Hanks inherits Hooch. From that point, Hanks' well organized and planned life is changed. It is a story how Hanks comes to realize that Hooch misses his original owner and accepts Hanks' obessive/compulsive way of doing things. Of course, Hanks is great in his interaction with Hooch and doesn't loose his character as Scott to Hooch's character. The murder investigation of Hooch's previous owner is secondary to the interaction of Hanks and Hooch. Hanks is absolutely funny in this movie. If you like a movie with some heart, this is a good one.
