Turner & Hooch is a classic 1989 American buddy-comedy film that stars the legendary Tom Hanks, Mare Winningham, and Craig T. Nelson. The movie revolves around a comical police detective, Scott Turner (Tom Hanks), who is forced to partner up with a huge slobbery dog named Hooch, to help him solve a murder case. The story begins with Scott Turner, a meticulous, organized and detail-oriented detective, who lives a very routine life, and has a soft spot for his home appliances. Everything changes when he receives a new assignment to investigate a murder case in the small town of Cypress Beach. He soon realizes that the only eyewitness to the murder is a slobbering dog named Hooch, who was owned by the victim.

Scott reluctantly takes custody of the giant French mastiff while he tries to solve the case, but Hooch proves to be a handful, especially for someone as orderly and by-the-book as Scott. Hooch is a lovable and loyal dog, but he is also messy and unruly, and doesn't seem to have any boundaries. At first, Scott resents having to babysit this rowdy dog, but soon, Hooch's unrestrained behavior forces him to loosen up and have a little fun.

As they spend more time together, Scott and Hooch start to get along, and their relationship evolves from one of hostility to one of grudging respect. Hooch proves himself to be an invaluable resource in the case, and in the process, becomes a trusted companion to Scott. The two develop a bond that continues to grow throughout the movie.

As Scott gets closer to solving the case, he must also deal with a number of other challenges. He is faced with hostility from the local sheriff, Parker (Craig T. Nelson), who wants to get credit for solving the crime. Scott also has to deal with his growing attraction to the town veterinarian, Dr. Emily Carson (Mare Winningham), who takes an interest in both him and Hooch.

Throughout the movie, Turner & Hooch provides plenty of laughs, action, and even a few tears, as Hooch brings out the best in Scott, and helps him to learn to love and be loved in return. The chemistry between Tom Hanks and his canine co-star is undeniable, and the movie relies heavily on their interaction to keep audiences entertained.

Overall, Turner & Hooch is a fun and heartwarming movie that blends comedy, drama, and a hint of romance, into an entertaining and enjoyable film. The performances by the entire cast are top-notch, and the film is the perfect vehicle for Tom Hanks to showcase his talents. It's a timeless classic that has been beloved by audiences for over thirty years, and it's easy to see why.

Turner & Hooch is a 1989 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 37 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 36.
