Mondays are best ended by piling on the conch and watching movies together. So for this Movie Monday we got all cuddled up with a big bowl of dog treats and settled in to watch the classic movie that made Dogue de Bordeaux's so famous, Turner and Hooch. Our pack generally falls asleep before the opening credits roll, unless there are dogs on screen… then suddenly they are at full attention. Do your dog's watch TV?
Movie Monday: Turner and Hooch
Genre: Family Comedy
Year released: 1989
Breeds in movie: Dogue de Bordeaux, Collie
Review: This movie is a classic comedy-drama through and through. To watch the relationship develop between Tom Hank's character, Turner, and the incredible slobbery, yet oh-so-lovable Hooch is sentimental to any dog lover. The premise of the movie begins when local junk yard owner Amos is murdered, leaving behind only one eye witness, his dog Hooch. Turner is the OCD detective who takes on the case, and subsequently brings home Hooch to help him solve the murder. Hooch promptly destroys every square inch of Turner's meticulously kept home and car, but also leads him to love. The fun is in watching what turmoil Hooch will cause next and also the bond that grows between dog and human.
