Strange to realize that, despite the presence of a slobbering pooch who gets into no end of trouble (including bursting face-first through a pantry door and eating all of Tom Hanks' food), it's very clear the filmmakers considered "Turner & Hooch" their entry in the popular genre of 'buddy-cop' movies rather than the bonafide family film it would have no doubt been if produced just a few years later.
