Hanks plays an obsessively clean and efficent cop who inherits Hooch the pooch. a massive mastiff. The limited comedy revolves around the dog's ability to drool gallons of of saliva and dismantle all obstacles while helping the police with their enquiries. Needless to say. the two form a loving relationship and needless to say the film was a winner in the US. but UK audiences had best hope that talents like Hanks. Spottiswoode and even Beazley get better scripts in the future. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. ()deon. Edinburgh: ()deon. Strathclyde: UCI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride.

Soon the pair are grappling to a thumping backbeat. with a videocamera thrown in for good measure. The affair continues until the showdown at Two Moon Junction on the eve of her nuptials. An X-rated shampoo advert. which for the most part remains a head and shoulders experience. Edinburgh: ()deon.
