During the movie Dooley is playing a game when he is on stakeout. In the background you can see the Mustang emblem on the steering wheel. Later in the stolen police car when he is playing a game while tailing Lyman, the Mustang emblem is in the background again. See more »
Dooley, what is it about me that makes you so passionate?
Well, it's not your looks, Lyman. I guess it's your job.
And knowing your methods of law enforcement, I don't suppose that you have a search warrant?
Dog ate it. You can hang around his tail for an hour.

Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more »
The UK theatrical version was cut by 21 secs to secure a "12" rating and removed descriptions of a "Colombian Necktie". The 15 rated video version was uncut and the 12 rated DVD is also intact. See more »
Buddy movie about a special couple , a cop and his dog .
The picture talks about James Belushi a quirky policeman who develops lonely his mission with the aim to track down an important drug peddler (Kevin Thige). The police chief (James Handy) assigns him as couple , a hound dog (Jerry Lee was played by Rando, a 3-year-old German Shepherd from West Germany and trained for 3 months) . They will have to confront deal of dangers while his fiancée (Mel Harris) is abducted .
The motion picture is a particular buddy movie because the starring are one person and one dog , the comedy and giggles regarding both of them are interminable . Over 40 dogs were considered but none of the American German Shepherds were deemed suitable . A year-long search was held to find the right dog for the role . The dog chosen , Rando , learned to understand commands in English . There's a previous picture concerning to similar theme upon policeman-dog relationship : ¨Turner and Hooch¨ , both of them are similar , though I think the best results to be the film featured by Tom Hanks.
The flick blends humor , action-packed , car pursuits , tongue-in-cheek , it's amusing but there are moments that is a little boring but when the dog appears is enough bemusing . The film obtained success at the box office ; however , ten years later , the same starring James Belushi and the dog (or different dog because had deceased) made a second part what failed and was direct-to-video . Subsequently had a third part that was another flop . The flick will appeal to action comedy buffs and dog lovers. Rating : Average 5'5/10
