K-9: P.I. is a 2002 comedy film that portrays the adventures of detective Dooley and his brave canine companion, Jerry Lee. Produced by Charles H. Meighen and directed by Richard J. Lewis, the movie stars Jim Belushi as the detective, and Gary Basaraba, Kim Huffman, and Jody Racicot in supporting roles. The plot revolves around Dooley and Jerry Lee, who are fired from their jobs in the police department. Desperate to make a living, they start their private detective agency and find themselves entangled in a case that involves a lethal drug called 'Wilderness.' The drug, which has made its way into a small town, is causing deaths and destruction. The case becomes more complicated as Dooley finds out that an old friend is the mastermind behind the drug operations.

As the investigation goes on, Dooley and Jerry Lee encounter several challenges. They are often caught in hilarious situations, and Jerry Lee's naivety and impulsiveness turn out to be their biggest obstacles. Dooley, on the other hand, tries to control his temper and focus on the case.

The supporting cast of the movie plays an essential part in the narrative. Basaraba portrays Bernie, Dooley's loyal and dim-witted friend who becomes the target of drug dealers. Huffman plays Devon, a bar owner who provides valuable information about the case. Racicot is Castillian, a ruthless drug lord who has a history with Dooley.

The movie's style is reminiscent of classic buddy cop comedies of the 80s and 90s, with a dash of slapstick humor. There are several chases, fights, and amusing conversations between Dooley and Jerry Lee. The dog's antics, such as stealing donuts, playing with a chew toy, or barking at strangers, add charm to the story.

The cinematography of the film is straightforward, with a few aerial shots and close-ups for emphasis. The music mostly consists of classic songs, which add a nostalgic touch to the movie. The action scenes are well choreographed, and the humor is appropriately timed, making the movie an entertaining watch.
