A not very subtle variation on the buddy picture, this fluff comedy/action story squeaks by on the surprising charm generated by Jim Belushi (About Last Night, Salvador). Belushi plays the typically acerbic loner cop who relentlessly pursues a criminal mastermind while trying to juggle a relationship at home with girlfriend Tracy, played by Mel Harris of television's thirtysomething. The catch is that Belushi is saddled with a partner, an unruly German shepherd named Jerry Lee, and the gruff but lovable cop learns to love the dog of his dreams. The film is predictable from its first moments and survives only on the strength of the loose charm of its lead and the inoffensive performance of its lead canine. --Robert Lane

James Belushi is perfectly comfortable in his ad-lib role as the cop with the German Shepheard partner. The timing is right on and the action non-stop. Bravo!
I still love it!
K-9 is about a cop (Jim Belushi-according to Jim)who has been
after a drug dealer for 2 years and after choosing to get a german shepard named Jerry Lee-a chili eating drug sniffing
dog Dooleys world is flipped upside down!
This movie has made me love those German Shepard doggies and it makes me want to go out and buy one!
I rented the 2nd one and it is good as well-but nothing can
compare to the 1rst one-thats for sure!
That scene when the bad guy shoots Jerry Lee always makes me sad
(how can anyone shoot a dog?)
then the scene when Dooley gets in that fight with the doctor was
EITHER YOU HELP HIM NOW OR HES GONNA DIE
DONT GET SO EXICTED-HES JUST A DOG
HES NOT JUST A DOG-HES A COP-AND HES NOT JUST ANY COP HES MY PARTNER!
YOU KNOW ABOUT MEDICINE-YOU KNOW HOW TO REMOVE A BULLET
(SLAMS GUN DOWN ON THE TABLE)
Doctors dont think animals have a right to live when they get
seriously injured-that only humans do?
next you'll be telling us these human beasts have souls!
My favorite scenes were:
Jerry drinking Dooleys iced tea through the straw
the car wash scene
the cupcake scene
and the part when Dooley and Jerry first meet-and Jerry lunges
Actually every scene was great-but not that scene when poor
Jerry got shot.
Swear to god, you've got to watch K-9, because it is the best movie that ever made with a dog as a main charactor. IT IS A CRIME NOT TO WATCH IT!...

I'd always loved the original "K-9" movie with James Belushi & Jerry Lee, but until this time, I had not been able to secure my own copy of it! While looking on Amazon. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Lorelei Kawchuk
