Turner & Hooch (1989)

IMDb plot summary: A detective must adopt the dog of a dead man to help him find the murderer.
Directed by Roger Spottiswoode. Starring Tom Hanks and Mare Winningham.

Tom Hanks really does make a very likable leading man, and he is what makes this movie worth watching. I am far from an animal lover and am bored by animal films at best and annoyed by them at worst, so I was largely unamused by the dog's antics. What worked was Tom Hanks' response to all of it. He made it watchable, and if I didn't dislike animal movies so much, I feel like I might have even enjoyed it. 2 stars.

Flickchart: #1563 out of 1954, below The Money Pit and above Nell.
