James Belushi) is a "loose cannon" cop. He has to do everything his own way on his own time and doesn't know the meaning of the word, "team-work" But after he screws up his last bust by buying a car from a car dealer and five minutes later proceeds to crash it into a building where the bad guys are dealing dope, he is assigned a new partner, a dog! To be exact. A rouge German Shepard that wants to be treated more like a person than a dog. Belushi is very convincing and hilarious in his role as a cop, and the dog, surprisingly (I never thought I'd write this), was a great actor and did a terrific job. Hat's off to his handler! There are predictable and very typical cop vs. bad guy moments, but overall I thought the movie was an extremely funny cop-doggy comedy, with a very predictable but humorous ending to it. When compared to other cop-dog movies like "Turner and Hooch," it's a credit to Belushi's comedic timing that this film wound up on the top 250!
As a young child, K-9 was one of my favourite films, and although my tastes have matured with time, this is still a very funny film, with one of the most underrated actors ever, James Belushi. Playing the superb Bill Murray deadpan style, but usually as a cop, rather than Murray's humorous loser roles, Belushi is a likeable dodgy cop. The end scene in the hospital is the best man and dog conversation ever, although Jerry Lee jumping in the poodle's car runs it pretty close. My rating : 9 out of 10
I do agree the story is predictable, and the ending didn't quite excite or move me. However, it does work surprisingly well as a man-and-dog buddy movie. The film is at least nice to watch, the soundtrack is decent, the direction is good and the script does have a few laughs that makes the experience enjoyable. And the acting is very spirited- Jerry-Lee is the star of the show, very well trained and cute, while James Belushi is always watchable and Mel Harris is appealing and sexy. Overall, this is a surprisingly good buddy movie with enough humorous moments and spirited performances to make it worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
James Belushi is the cop, Dewley, who seems to have spent most of his time chasing after the same guy, the drug lord Lyman played Kevin Tighe. And is then finally forced to get a partner in the shape of Jerry Lee the German Shepard dog. They have a very comedic relationship quite like that of Turner and Hooch. Things take a dangerous turn for Dewley and Jerry Lee when Dewley's girlfriend Tracey, played by Mel Harris, is taken hostage by Lyman. A tragic outcome that turns out great in the end, and even Jerry Lee gets to have a girlfriend. Great acting by James Belushi, Mel Harris and Jerry Lee. A score of 7 out of 10.
James Belushi and the dog named "Jerry Lee" make an excellent pair in this fun cop romp. The duo make a natural pair and Belushi puts in an excellent performance without getting behind the lovable "Jerry Lee," who gets animated very aptly by excellent editting and direction. Fun movie, see it.
