Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks stars as Scott Turner, a compulsively neat detective whose tidy world goes to the dogs when he's forced to team up with 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 with its offbeat blend of humor and suspense. This fast-paced box office mega hit is loads of fun!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Tom Hanks makes Turner and Hooch more entertaining than it might look on paper, but ultimately, this is still a deeply silly comedy about a cop and a canine.

Common Sense Says
Dog-buddy comedy has lots of slobber and some violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Turner & Hooch is a mostly lighthearted '80s dog-cop buddy movie that involves the stabbing of a man and his death and (SPOILER) a dog's shooting and subsequent death. There are guns and knives present a terrifyingly large, barky, excessively slobbery dog to be trained, a lot of yelling at the dog, and some minor suggestive material (a man jokes to another man that he "needs to get laid," and a man and woman discuss whether he's thought about having sex and it's implied that they sleep together). That said, compared to most films today, the level of violence, sexuality, and murder here seem absolutely tame.
