This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Hooch is great. Turner, eh, not so much. What I mean by that is that the stuff with the dog is fine, quite funny and Hooch, gross as he is, makes for fascinating, visually engaging moments. The plot, belonging to the cop, is terrible, truly nonsensical and unnecessary/awkward in its tonal shifts. It doesn't earn how violent it ultimately is, culminating in SPOILER a very terrible death for the dog. I'll take K-9 for my 1989 cop and a dog movie any day of the week over this one.
