Detective Scott Turner (Hanks) is a fastidious, compulsively clean bachelor. After a friend is murdered, Turner must take the only witness home -- the victim's dirty, destructive and drooling dog, Hooch. A heart warming film with a ugly dog but beautiful inside and tom hanks character is a talker but he cares inside as well.

Inoffensive Tom Hanks vehicle, but it's the pooch who's the star of the show.

I admit it...I'm a sucker for a Hanks film...I can't help it. His charm is ALMOST reminiscent of the great James Stewart, he has mastered the "twinkle-in-the-eye" and the lovably warm goofy smile with ease...both characteristics that may have won me over here...Not to mention the fact that there is a very unique, camera friendly canine involved (dogs automatically earn points in my rating system - and this one earns points for achieving a "character-arc")
Sure, it's not perfect...but the early scenes between Hanks & Hooch "getting to used to each other" are hilarious, and somehow the two manage to have screen chemistry during the stakeout scene - not an easy task for an actor (or a writer, to create something interesting occurring between a man and a dog stuck in a car for hours...) …
