Hanks Rules and Hooch Drools (and Rules)!
The Godfather | Urbana, IL USA | 03/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a lover of the big dogs (mine are actually bigger than Hooch - Newfoundlands and Mastiff), I particularly enjoyed this movie. Hanks was great as the obsessive-compulsive police detective living in a neat, organized world that was turned upside-down by the addition of Hooch (a Dogue de Bordeaux or French Mastiff). To me, the plot about drugs and money laundering was secondary to the relationship between Turner and Hooch. From their first meeting with the muffin to the last moments, it was a joy to behold. While some things were not accurrate (the food buying scene in the grocery store - that's not how to do it) and some irresponsible (a veterinarian who lets her intact female dog roam free), life with one of these big droolers was fairly well portrayed. The scene where Hooch is left alone and proceeds to destroy the house was priceless. Something giant breed owners can understand. As cop and dog movies go, I feel that this was the best. They all are formulaic: cop gets stuck with dog, cop doesn't like dog, cop learns to get along with dog, cop's life is saved by dog or visa versa, cop loves dog. This had more fun to it and the use of an unusual breed with a drooling problem lent itself to interestign situations. A fun movie."
One of the least appreciated, sweet little films of all time

"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."

"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."
